Greece Golden Visa

The most affordable residence by investment in Europe

About the Program

Greece offers a unique blend of beautiful Mediterranean landscape, remarkable history and culture, and people of great hospitality. The geographical location of Greece is conveniently placed at the crossroads of three continents: Europe, Asia and Africa, providing a strategic investment destination. Since all major airlines are connected to Athens, flying around the world is easy and fast.

Following an economic recession, Greece has launched an extensive reform effort, which is set to improve investor confidence and attract new business. Currently, the Greek real estate market offers unique investment opportunities for individuals and businesses wishing to access property in Europe at highly competitive prices.

Greece offers the most affordable Golden Visa program, with a minimum investment of €250,000, the lowest investment capital required for a European residence permit.

The Greek Golden Visa Programme allows investors to choose their property without any geographical limitations within Greece or restrictions to the type of property. Investors are free to rent their properties in Greece immediately.
