The Greece Golden Visa Program is considered as the most affordable residency by investment route to Europe. The Program grants visa free access to the Schengen Zone to the applicant as well as the family within 2 months of submitting an application. After 7 years of residency in Greece, the applicant may apply for Greek citizenship, at which point he/she is free to dispose of the real estate investment.
In April 2013, Greece introduced Law 4146/ 2013 which offers a renewable five-year Greek residency visa to foreign nationals who invest at least EUR 250,000 in residential real estate that is physically located in in Greece. A residence permit for five (5) years is issued and can be renewed indefinitely (for a 5-year period each time), provided that the real estate property is still owned by the applicant. However, the residence permits do not allow a right to employment of any type.Read More
