Greek Golden Visa

A golden visa is essentially a residence permit by investment. Greek Law determines the necessary conditions for the application process. People from non-European Union countries may apply for residence permit when they meet these conditions. With this visa, you can have most of the rights -roughly except the right to vote – that a European Union citizen has. Law requires you to buy property or invest in Greece in order to get this visa. The property or properties should worth 250.000 euros or more. There are no limitations for the number of properties. You can apply for a residence permit by buying one or multiple properties. There are also no limitations in terms of the type of property. You can buy an apartment, commercial property, parcel of land, cottage, parking lot, hotel, or other kinds of properties singly or together.

What happens after the purchase?

At the end of purchase, you can apply for the residence permit. Residence permit includes the applicant, their marital partner, their own parents, marital partner’s parents, and the children of the couple who are younger than 21. There is no condition of staying in Greece for a residence permit. You can also rent your property. A residence permit is valid until the sale of the properties which were previously bought. In the case of the sale of the properties, the permit is canceled. The card for a residence permit is renewed every five years.

The residence permit with the acquisition of a residence permit does not include a working permit. However, there is no limitation in terms of establishing a company. With your residence permit, you can establish a company and you will be able to work in another company with a bill of the service fee from the company that you established.
