Greece

 – Residency by Investment Program –

Date of last update – Nov 2023

As a member state of the European Union, Greece has a highly appealing residency by investment program for non-EU/EEA investors who seek permanent European residency.

Launched in 2013, the program grants a permanent five-year renewable residency visa for those who invest at least EUR 250,000 in real estate. One of the key advantages of this program is that it allows main investors to include their spouse, children up to 21 years of age, and parents in one application. Visa-free travel throughout the Schengen Zone is another distinct advantage once your EU Residence Card is received.

If an individual maintains their visa and the property for seven years and is a full-time resident in Greece, they become eligible to apply for citizenship (there is however still a language requirement). This feature offers a unique opportunity for investors to plant roots in Greece and enjoy all the benefits that come with being a European citizen. With stunning landscapes, rich history, and a strategic location, Greece presents a prime investment opportunity for those seeking a high quality of life and access to European culture and values.
