Greece, Residency by Investment

Qualifying for the Greece Golden Visa means a golden ticket to residency in Greece with access to the European Union. To be eligible investors must be willing to invest in Greece through residency or capital investments. These can include options like purchasing real estate, making substantial capital investments or creating new jobs in Greece.

Investors interested in obtaining a Golden Visa can choose from various investment options aimed at improving the Greek economy. The most popular route involves purchasing real estate in Greece worth at least €250,000, making it one of the most affordable Golden Visa options available. Alternatively applicants can also make a capital investment of at least €400,000 in Greek government bonds, shares of Greek companies or of course deposits to the Greek banks. Depending on your financial strategies and position, one of these investment options will be your doorway to Europe.
