Golden Visa Information for Greece

The Golden Visa initiative was launched in Greece in 2013 and entitles people that invest 250,000 Euros to a 5 year residency including children up to the age of 18 and parents of the investor and spouse.  There is no requirement to live in the country to renew the visa and, provided the property is still owned, it can be renewed every 5 years. In order to gain citizenship however you must have been a resident for 7 years. Whilst all potential buyers must pay the mandatory 24% tax on property, it is still the lowest cash requirement of any of these schemes.

Once the Golden visa application has been accepted it will take approximately 40 days from time of investment for a residency card to be issued, making the entire process quick and easy, allowing quick access to Schengen countries.

In order to qualify for the scheme you must apply for the scheme after you have invested and have both medical insurance and a clean criminal record, the residency permit entitles people to live but not to work in Greece.
