Program Overview

  • In April 2013, Greece officially launched the policy of "foreigners purchasing real estate and obtaining EU residence", attracting a large number of investors to flow into Greece. ​

  • In July 2015, Greece amended its immigration bill, stipulating that as long as investors purchase a real estate project in Greece worth 250,000 euros or more, they can obtain an "Investor Permanent Residence Permit" issued by the Greek government and obtain a European green card in one step. ​

  • On February 23, 2017, the Greek government canceled the investment permanent residence visa system, and all investors will receive independent permanent residence cards.
