How to qualify for a Greek Golden Visa
To qualify for a Greek Golden Visa, you need to make a minimum investment in Greece in one of the following:
- €250,000 or €500,000 in real estate, depending on the location of the property.
€250,000 for specific type of investments, such as renewable energy sources.
€400,000 in securities or financial instruments, such as a time deposit.
Certain conditions may apply.
How you benefit from a Greek Golden Visa
Once you get your Golden Visa, you and your family can enjoy the Greek quality of life, while travelling freely within the Schengen zone.
Whatever the investment you choose to make, you gain:
- 5-year residence permit in Greece, with the option to renew it every 5 years as long as you retain your investment.
- Free movement within the Schengen Area for 90 days every 6 months.
- Residence permits for your entire family (spouse, children and parents).
- Access to the Greek educational system.
- A Greek passport after 7 years, under specific conditions.
Under the Greek residency-by-investment scheme, you do not have the right to work in Greece.
You may earn income on your investment, though. For example, by renting out your property.
If you got your Golden Visa by investing in time deposits, shares or bonds, you may also qualify as a Non-Dom Tax Resident, provided you meet certain conditions.
