Depending on your country of origin, you may need the issuance of a residence and work permit. We are here to provide more info.
If you are willing to invest at least EUR 250,000 in real-estate or invest EUR 400,000 in a number of Greek-traded securities or even start your own company in Greece with an initial capital of that amount (the so-called “mixed investment”), you can become eligible for obtaining a Long – Term Residence Permit, widely known as Golden Visa.
It is valid for 5 years renewable, can extend to family members, and grants you the right to freely move within the EU. While you do not have the right to be employed in Greece under that status, you have the right to exercise economic activity as the shareholder of your own Company or as a manager of an already existing company.
