Greece Golden Visa Programme

The Golden Visa Programme presented by the Hellenic Republic gives you and your family (your spouse, your unmarried dependent children up to age 21 and the dependent parents of you and your spouse) the right to live and set up a business in Greece, through the issuance of a Permanent Residence Permit (PRP). Besides, you can travel to all countries of the EU Schengen zone, for up to 90 days in each 6 months period.
The PRP is valid for 5 years and can be renewed, under the condition that you still own the property, or you retain the financial investment you have made.

Greece is a fabulous country to live in: you can discover various landscapes ranging from astonishing beaches to green mountains, an exceptional sunny weather for more than 300 days per year, a healthy and tasty Mediterranean cuisine, a magnificent cultural heritage and fascinating traditions.

Moreover, you can reach from Greece all major cities in Europe, North Africa and Middle East in few hours.

You and your family can enjoy all this and much more thanks to your golden visa.

Greece offers an advanced healthcare, a versatile educational system and a lifestyle among the best in Europe.

Currently, there are two main options available in order to acquire the Permanent Residence Permit (PRP): one is related to the purchase of a real estate property, the other is related to the investment in financial assets strictly connected to the Greek economy.
