The Greece Golden Visa Program provides a quick, well-priced pathway to Greek residency for foreigners who invest in real estate in the country.
Greece offers economic residency to those who invest a minimum of €250,000 in real estate through its Golden Visa Program.

One of the oldest civilizations in the world, Greece today is a vibrant country of ten million people situated in southeastern Europe, with islands extending into the Aegean Sea. A key member of the European Union, its neighbors to the north include non-EU Balkan states (Bulgaria, Macedonia, Albania) as well as Turkey. Greek is the national language; the euro is its national currency. The country is renowned for its ancient history. Its capital, Athens, hosts the Parthenon—perhaps the ancient world’s most famous monument—as well as innumerable other thousands-of-years old-sites.

The food, history, and hot climate make Greece one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe.
