Golden Visa is a five-year residency visa in Greece, potentially leading also to the acquisition of Greek citizenship. It can be renewed every five years, provided the property stays under the ownership of the visa holder throughout the duration of visa, irrespective whether the holder had been physically present in Greece or not. Family members of the main applicant, including the spouse, children of either spouse under 21 years of age and the (spouses’) parents are also entitled to the Visa.
Greece currently offers unique opportunities in the real estate market as prices are lower than in the other EU countries and prospects for a return in the original investment high.
The supervision of an independent Greek property lawyer is of fundamental importance when buying property in Greece, as real estate law in Greece is complex and requires an independent and competent lawyer to search titles for defects or burdens, supervise, co-draft and approve the process of buying property in Greece. The lawyer should not be chosen or provided by the realtor or seller, because in those cases, impartiality cannot be guaranteed and often defects of the propriety are not reported to the buyer.
