Greek Residency by Investment program

The Greece Golden Visa Scheme

The Greece Golden Visa scheme is granted by virtue of the Immigration and Social Integration Code. Pursuant to the Law 4136/2013 as amended by 4251/2014, Greece has introduced provisions to facilitate the residency of Non-EU nationals in Greece.

The Greece Golden Visa (permanent residency permit)(“PR”), is one of the most popular programs amongst the EU countries, granting residency in Greece and enabling an entire non-EU family, including dependent children, up to the age of 24 and the parents of both spouses, to obtain the PR within 3 months, with a minimum investment of €250.000. This particular scheme is one of the most competitive PR schemes in Europe, offering the applicant and his family eligibility and freedom to live freely in the EU and to travel with ease.

According to recent amendments in the Greek Permanent Residency Scheme (Greece Golden Viza), with effect as from May 1, 2023*, the amount for investment in properties in the following areas of Greece increases from EUR 250.000 to EUR 500.000:

  • North, central and south regional units of the region of Attica;
  • Municipality of Vari – Voula – Voyliagmeni in the Attica Region;
  • Municipality of Thessaloniki in the Region of Central Macedonia; and
  • Regional units of the islands of Mykonos and Santorini in the Region of South Aegean.



The Greece Golden Visa Program is a residence-by-investment program launched in 2013 that enables non-EU nationals and their family members to obtain permanent residence permits in Greece. The residence permits may be renewed every five years.
