Residence Permit & Golden Visa
Greece due to its geographical position has specific sectors that qualify as appropriate and profitable for investments, such as tourism and real estate, food and agriculture, renewable energy sources, technology and ICT, environmental management, export-oriented manufacturing and life sciences. In these sectors, Greece obtains competitive advantages under international standards.
In an effort to reinforce the national economy and to stimulate the domestic land market, the national legislator provokes the investment interest of natural and legal persons who reside in third countries, by facilitating and enabling the issuance of a residence permit aim at the creation of a friendly climate for investments in Greece by third-country nationals.
The government of Greece introduced a procedure to obtain residence permits, which can be renewed every five (5) years, for owners of real estate by third-country citizens, the value of which exceeds €250.000, adopting a friendlier stance towards those who wish to own real estate property in Greece.
A residence permit is any documentation issued by the Greek authorities, according to which a third country citizen is given the right to reside legally within Greek territory, in accordance with the provisions of the European Union.
The third country nationals, holders of a residence permit, and their families enjoy almost the same freedoms and rights as nationals, namely the freedom of movement and installation within the Greek territory, the right to insurance and social care, the right to education etc.
In comparison to other countries the Greek Golden Visa Program appears to be one of the most competitive programs. Its financial requirements are the lowest as well as appear to be more convenient and flexible for the investors from third countries since there is no requirement for physical presence.
