Greece has long been considered the cradle of Western civilization, where democracy and political science, poetry and drama, science and philosophy took their birth. It’s no surprise, that it has no less than 18 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, reflecting its rich history and long tradition of culture.
Greece permits those who invest a minimum of €250,000 into residential property to obtain a five-year residence permit. This permit can be indefinitely renewed for five years at a time as long as the property is held.
In 2015, Greece introduced new legislation to allow non-EU citizens who stay in Greece continuously for seven years to become citizens. This is the most economical and fast way to get residency in an EU country, with the possibility of citizenship in the future.
Additional Government fees will apply.
