Who Qualifies For A Greece Golden Visa?

The Greece Golden Visa applies to the investor, their spouse, unmarried dependent children up to age 24 and the dependent parents of both spouses. The permit is permanent as long as the buyer keeps possession and is renewed every 5 years by presenting to the authority the title deed of the property. Obtaining permanent residency and eventually EU citizenship offers a legacy to your and later your children’s families.
The Investment
The Greece Golden Visa Program requires a real estate investment of €250,000 (net of vat). The investment can be made in land, off-plan, new or resale properties as long as the minimum value is met. Investors have the right to sell the property before the expiration of 5 years to another foreign citizen, who can also apply for permanent residency, however, the original investor must forfeit his permit to do so.

  • In cases of joint ownership, where the value of the property is €250.000, the residence permit is only granted if the owners are spouses with undivided ownership of the property. In all other cases of joint ownership, the residence permit is only granted if the amount invested by each of the joint owners is at least €250.000.
  • If the owner has acquired the property through a legal entity, the applicant must own 100% of the company shares.
  • Either a single or multiple properties with a combines value exceeding €250,000 are applicable.

Greece Citizenship By Investment

Permanent residents have the right to apply for Greek citizenship after living in Greece for 7 years, in accordance with legal provisions. Their children may apply if:
  • they attend any Greek school for 9 years, or
  • they attend a Greek secondary school for 6 years, or
  • they attend a Greek University.

An EU citizen is free to live, work, travel, receive healthcare or pursue education anywhere within the EU, including the UK. In fact, travel benefits extend way beyond Europe with Greek passport holders being able to travel visa free to an extensive list of countries.
