A Golden Visa is a type of residence visa with added benefits, offered by several European countries including Greece. It is an investment scheme that ensures visa-free transport in the Schengen zone to non-European investors and their families.
The Legal basis for a Golden Visa in Greece
Greece introduced the law No 4251/2014 that allows citizens from any non-European countries to acquire a European residence permit by investment, granting them free movement to travel within the Schengen Zone (26 countries).
Benefits of Greek Golden Visa
The Golden Visa Programme in Greece is exceptionally competitive as it features friendly terms, minimizing the amount of the capital required with an easy process to obtain. It is an investor visa and it can be renewed indefinitely as long as the main applicant keeps the investment, while there is no requirement to stay in Greece whatsoever.
Αll non-European citizens are eligible to apply for a Golden Visa, as long as the main applicant is over 18 years old and the total investment is no less than 250.000 euros.
Golden Visa for Families
Children under 21 years of age, parents, spouse or partner with a co-habitation agreement (concluded in Greece) and in-laws of the main investor can benefit from the same investment of 250.000 euros and issue a permanent European residence permit too.
