Greek Golden Visa – How it Benefits Investors, and What is About to Change

Oct 24, 2022

Launched in 2013, the Greek Golden Visa program allows an international family, including children up to 24 years old and the parents of both spouses, to get permanent residence in Greece. This becomes possible in only 3 months with a €500,000 investment in real estate.

Europe’s most competitive permanent residence policy offers visa-free travel to all Schengen countries for up to 90 days every 6 months.

If you are one of the investors and still haven’t gotten your visa program yet, mind that the demand is now increasing rapidly in the real estate market!

Find out how the Greek Golden Visa benefits YOU!


Invite All Your Family To Greece


You and your family can live in Greece with the Greek Golden Visa. There is no expiry date on how long you can stay!

This visa program allows you to include your spouse and children under the age of 21 in the program. This means that all these family members can also receive and enjoy all the benefits of a Golden Visa card.

The program also gives you the opportunity to include your extended family members like your parents and in-laws with the Extended Family benefit of the Golden Visa Program. 


Fly Freely Across Europe


You can travel freely across the Schengen area without the need for any extra passes. The Schengen zone comprises 26 countries in Europe that have formally abolished visas and border controls at their mutual boundaries.

What’s great about the Greek Golden Visa is that the government of Greece, only asks for a fingerprinting visit, which you can complete within one year of ownership. Take a look at our wonderful collection of properties that are applicable for the golden visa through our C21 website!


Great Tax Benefits


Your worldwide income may not be subject to taxation in Greece depending on the country of your residence and the length of time you spend there. Thus, you can continue doing business outside Greece and apply for tax benefits.

There’s a double taxation treaty for Greece, with various governments, including the United Kingdom and the United States. This benefits foreigners to pay taxes for Greek property only in Greece.

The Lowest Investment Threshold Is Found In Greece


The program’s benefits are clear when compared to Europe, where investments in new housing start at €500,000. To qualify for Greek Golden Visa, you can invest as little as €500,000 in real estate anywhere in Greece.

The price itself is a great reason to take action! However, there’s a possibility that the visa is going to increase in six months’ time. That’s why you should act now!


The Demand Is High and the Clock Is Ticking: The Time To Act is NOW.


Prime Minister of Greece, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, stated that the minimum property investment to get your Greek Golden Visa changes from €250,000 to €500,000. This is due to attempts by the government to boost the available stock of real estate for purchase by locals and improve the longevity of the program.

To avoid disrupting the program’s operation, the Ministry of Development is evaluating scenarios to put the new rule into action at the beginning of 2023. Yet, all resident permit applications will be submitted with the previous limit of €500,000 until the end of this year.

Opportunities for permanent residency like this one, are rare to find. That’s why you should take action and invest in Greece’s Real Estate.

Investing in Greece to receive a Greek Golden Visa means you can invest both in tourist areas and in the Greek Islands’ real estate.
