Greece is a typical Mediterranean country in the center of Europe, with a history dating back to the 5th Century B.C. The economy is service-based, with tourism and shipping being two of the key industries.
Following an extensive economic recession that lasted almost a decade, Greece has embarked on an extensive reform effort, which is set to improve investor confidence and attract new business.
At this time of recovery, the Greek real estate market offers unique investment opportunities for individuals and businesses wishing to access property in Europe at highly competitive prices.
Greece has a modern, free-market, service-based economy, giving international investors and businesses confidence to invest, grow, and prosper.
Why choose the Greek Residency Program:
The Permanent Residency Permit grants a Non-EU national the right to permanently reside in Greece with no renewal requirements. Once granted, the Permanent Residency Permit covers the whole family: the main applicant and spouse, their parents, and all children under 21 years of age.
You and your family will have free access to the Greek health system and also your children will be free to attend the Greek Educational institutions (schools, universities etc.).
You are not required to live in Greece prior to or during the residency application, or even after residency has been granted.
Permanent residency lifts traveling restrictions and elaborate visa requirements across the EU, facilitating access to the Schengen zone. Visa-free travel covers a growing list of countries, including Germany, France, Italy, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands. For other countries, a simplified visa is available to permanent residency holders. (Note: Greek citizenship allows visa-free travel across all 26 "Schengen Area" countries.)
Fast track application procedure - all applications are reviewed by the Greek government within approximately two months from the date of filing. The application can be processed in the applicant’s absence and filed on their behalf.
Becoming a citizen of Greece does not have any tax implications unless you reside in the country for over 183 days during the year.
