Booming economy

The formerly struggling Greek economy has managed an impressive bounce back these past few years. Greece is now enjoying a financial growth spurt thanks to a triumphant post-pandemic rebound in tourism and consistently improving public finances, a far cry from the times of austerity in the 2010s.

These days, political stability and an outward-looking approach regarding investment opportunities is keeping the Greek momentum alive, as is corroborated by the European Comission economic forecasts for 2024 and 2025. With an expected GDP growth of 2.3% and productive investments picking up speed, Greece has officially established its place as a key player in the eurozone economy.

Free Healthcare

The Greek National Healthcare Service (ESY) just celebrated its 40th anniversary and continues to be one of the most robust and efficient public systems. By obtaining residency, you and your family members are entitled to universal coverage and national health insurance, which translates to very low or zero copay when it comes to prescription medicines or check-ups, and the ability to undergo urgent surgical procedures in public hospitals without accumulating debt.

Free education

Public higher education in Greece is, and has traditionally been, 100% free. University textbooks and material is provided to students through public funding. A considerable number of higher education institutions in Greece is routinely featured among the top universities in the world, such as the prestigious National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Athens University of Business and Economics or the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.

Even graduate studies are affordable and accessible to all, with most programs falling in the range between 2,000 and 4,000 Euros, and many completely free of charge. Tuition fees have always been a source of stress for parents and students alike, and even more so in recent years, with enrollment and living costs skyrocketing worldwide. Choosing Greece means that your children will reap the benefits of a free, high quality education and an internationally recognized degree from a respected institution.

European benefits

Obtaining your Greek Golden Visa automatically grants you and your family the privilege of free movement within the Schengen Zone, so you can enjoy visa-free travels to Germany, Austria, Belgium, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland, as well as the micro states of Monaco, San Marino and Vatican City, which are considered de facto Schengen area members due to their size.

You also have the right to remain in the countries mentioned above for no more than 90 days for every 6-month period and gain access to education and health services. It is important to note that on March 31, 2024, Bulgaria and Romania became the newest members of the Schengen Zone, dropping maritime and air border controls, and are to lift land border controls in the near future.

Slow, sustainable living

Even in the early Monday morning frenzy during rush hour in downtown Athens, you’ll bear witness to the sacred ritual of people in suit and tie waiting patiently for a warm koulouri off the street cart on their way to the office. In Thessaloniki, there’s the unspoken understanding of sparing a half-hour to sneak in an espresso with a friend right in the middle of the work day, especially in those languishing summer months. And if you become a regular, you’ll never run out things to talk about with the vendors at thelaiki, the open-air fresh fruit and veg market that takes place once a week, without fail, in every neighborhood.

The Greeks have humanity running through their veins, having built up a sense of collective empathy and resilience after historically enduring a plethora of crises, and they strongly rely on building those generous community bonds that allow for a more relaxed lifestyle and deeper connections with each other.
