GREECE

Greece, officially called the Hellenic Republic, is in the Southern and South-eastern part of Europe with a population of approximately 11 million. Its capital is Athens, and the official language spoken is Greek although English is spoken by many of the locals. Greece adopted the euro as its official currency in 2001, meaning that it was one of the first countries to make use of the euro banknotes and coins.

Greece, a full EU Member State, scores high on all major factors taken into consideration when choosing a new country for relocating, such as quality of life, regulated environment, secure living conditions in urban and rural areas, access to efficient services, residence privileges for family members, freedom to travel, among others. The country presents unique investment opportunities such as ICT, energy, life sciences, export-oriented manufacturing and logistics.

Benefits

The Greece My Residence permit was launched in 2013 to attract foreign direct investment by facilitating the stay of non-EU nationals, who are granted a five-year residency visa, in return for a real estate investment of EUR 250,000. This visa can be acquired under 90 days and is renewable every five years, if the property investment is retained.

As a member of the European Union and the Eurozone, Greece continues to be the economic hub of Southeast Europe, an ideal gateway to the Middle East, Western Europe, and North Africa, and an emerging logistics hub for the entire region.

COMMITTMENT

To apply for the Greece Golden Visa, applicants must own real estate property in Greece, either personally or through a 100% owned, legal entity based in Greece or another EU member state. The total minimum value of the investment must be of EUR 250,000; or

A lease agreement for a minimum of 10 years, for hotel accommodations or furnished tourist residences in integrated tourist resorts, including timeshare agreements provided the minimum cost of the lease is EUR 250,000;

Further to this, the amount of government-related administrative fees is approximately EUR 2,516 for a single main applicant, and an additional EUR 150 for every adult dependent.

This means that the total capital outlay for a single applicant through the real estate route, is approximately EUR 280,166 including the investment, government fees, typical expenses for the acquisition of the real estate and Property Transfer Tax. This indicative amount excludes service providers’ professional fees and any other statutory taxes.
