Recent Updates in Investment Thresholds
As of recent changes, the minimum property investment threshold in Greece has been increased to €500,000 for several high-demand areas, including Mykonos, Santorini, Thessaloniki, and most municipalities in Athens. However, the opportunity to invest at the previous threshold of €250,000 still exists in other attractive regions of Greece, offering a variety of options for potential investors.
A Residency Programme for the Whole Family
This unique opportunity not only unlocks visa-free travel across the Schengen area but also allows you and your family to immerse yourselves in a country known for its enchanting landscapes, rich historical tapestry, and modern vibrancy.
Greece Golden Visa secures residency for you and your spouse, along with any of your dependent children up to the age of 21. You can even request permits for your parents plus your spouse’s parents, which makes this an exceptionally attractive Golden Visa for families.
Applicants and their family members are not permitted to work under the Greek residence permit. However, you, as the applicant, have unrestricted access to both education and healthcare sectors, and are free to establish as well as run a business in Greece.

Greece Golden Visa Benefits – All The Benefits Without Having to Reside
Although this is a residency programme, there is no official requirement to reside in Greece for any amount of time. In fact, the only time you must visit Greece is to complete the biometric capturing process so that your European ID card may be issued. However, with over 300 days of sunshine annually, a rich cultural heritage and countless seductive beaches, it would be a crime not to visit this beautiful country at least once a year!
A Range of Property Investment Options

From slick city apartments to dreamy island villas, Greece offers a diverse property portfolio to suit any investor needs. Whether you are looking to purchase a single property or invest in multiple properties situated all over the mainland of Greece or its surrounding islands – the choice is yours! You can even buy commercial property if you so wish and the only requirement is that the total value of your property or properties is at least €250,000.

Since your residency permit must be renewed every five years, you will need to retain your property for as long as you wish to remain a Greek resident. But there are no restrictions on letting your property as either a holiday rental or fixed-term tenancy – this allows you to generate an average rental yield of around 5% per year!

Other Investment Options
Apart from property investment, the Greece Golden Visa program offers additional investment avenues as described below:
  • Capital Transfer: Invest a minimum of €400,000 in a Greek credit institution.
  • Capital Contribution: Make investments starting at €400,000 in Greek companies, real estate investment companies, or alternative investment funds that primarily focus on Greece.
  • Government Bonds and Securities: Options include the purchase of Greek government bonds, shares, or corporate bonds, with minimum investment values ranging from €400,000 to €800,000.
