Global Residence - Greece Golden Visa Program

The Greece Golden Visa Program was introduced by the Greek government in 2013 to enable persons to acquire residency in Greece by investing in real estate, in return for a five-year residence permit, which can be renewed thereafter for another 5 years each time if the applicant still owns the property. Greece offers a straightforward route, with no minimum residency stay requirement, coupled with a quick application process with further opportunity to apply for citizenship after a set of period of time.
