GOLDEN VISA GREECE OFFERING RESIDENCY VIA PROPERTY INVESTMENT FROM AS LOW AS 250.000€ WITH AN OPTION FOR EUROPEAN CITIZENSHIP & PASSPORT FOR THE BUYERS AND THEIR FAMILIES
Launched in 2013, the Greek golden visa programme grants a five year residency visa in return for an investment in real estate. There is no minimum stay requirement and children up to the age of 21 are included in the family application as well as the parents of both investor and spouse. The visa is granted for five years and renewed every five years if the property investment is retained. It is not necessary to live in the country in order to retain and renew the investor visa. Citizenship can be granted after seven years of residency.
The golden visa program in Greece offers an affordable real estate investment route to permanent residency in Europe. At 250,000€ this programme offers the lowest cost residency in Europe. The Greek residency programme is relatively fast, taking around 1.5 to 2 months until a residency card is issued. There are also favourable family rules for dependents.The property, which can be located anywhere on the Greek mainland or the islands, can be either residential or commercial. Any number of properties can combine to make up the €250,000 minimum investment. Joint buyers can combine investments into one property.
A typical application involves initial discussion with us followed by a 3 or 4 day visit to Greece to view properties, meet with lawyers and property owners. The application after this point can be processed within Greece by the our qualified lawyers under Power of Attorney. Provided everything is done correctly at this stage the client will not need to visit again to collect the residence permits.
Once granted the Greek residence permit allows freedom of travel throughout the EU Schengen zone. Applicants gain the right to live in Greece although there is no requirement to do this. With the residency card all family members will have freedom to travel to and throughout the EU Schengen visa zone with ease and without further visa applications. in addition, if the resident sells the property to another non-EU citizen, the Greek residency becomes transferable to the new investor.
