GOLDEN VISA GREECE OFFERS RESIDENCE WITHOUT CITIZENSHIP
Launched in July 2013, the Greek Golden Visa program grants a five-year residence visa in exchange for an investment in real estate. There is no minimum length of stay, and children up to the age of 21 are included in the family application. The visa is granted for five years and is renewed every five years if the real estate investment is maintained. It is not necessary to live in the country to obtain and renew the investor visa. However, citizenship can only be granted after seven years of residence in the country.

FAVORABLE EUROPEAN RESIDENCE
Investors in real estate in Greece must also plan for the additional taxes on real estate ranging from 3% to 24%. At €250,000 + taxes and fees (totaling just over €300,000), this program offers the most affordable residency in Europe. The Greek residence program is relatively fast: it takes about 40 days for a residence card to be issued. There are also favorable family arrangements for dependents.
