Golden Visa Program

Europe’s most popular residence-by-investment program for three of the last four years, the Greek Golden Visa offers visa-free travel throughout the Schengen area, as well as settlement rights in Greece itself. 

While applicants may choose from a wide array of asset classes, the great preponderance prefer to qualify by investing at least EUR 250,000 in real estate on the open Greek market.
