Here is some information and a description of the possibilities you will acquire when you obtain the Golden Visa:
The golden visa was introduced by the Greek State in order to facilitate the owners of properties in their movement in and out of Greece.
The Greek Golden Visa program is one of the most attractive and less costly in the EU.
It gives the possibility to acquire a residence permit in Greece, valid for all EC and Schengen Countries by owning a property (new ,resale) of minimum value 250.000 euro without including the contract expenses.
Beneficiaries of a residence permit for investment activity are:
(a) third-country citizens intending to invest in Greece, provided that their investment plan complies with the conditions set out in the legal framework.
(b) Family members of a third-country citizen who has been granted with residence permit.
(c) Third country citizens who are executives of companies involved in the implementation or operation of the described investment plan.
The duration of the residence permit for investment activity (for investors or executives) is five years and is renewed for an equal period of time each time, provided that the beneficiary retains his / her position (investor or executive) in relation to the investment and continues to operate her. For family members the residence permit expires at the same time as the residence permit of the sponsor.
