Golden Visa Program: Unlocking Opportunities for Investors

The Greek Golden Visa program offers a pathway to residency for non-EU citizens through strategic investments. Under Article 20B of the Immigration and Social Integration Code (Law 4251/2014), eligible individuals can obtain a five-year residence permit, subject to renewal, by meeting specific criteria:

  • Investment in Real Estate: Investors must personally own real estate in Greece valued at €250,000 or €500,000, depending on the location. Joint ownership is permissible under certain conditions.

  • Other Investment Options: Alternatively, individuals can invest in hotel accommodation, tourist residences, or time-sharing agreements.

  • Family Reunification: Accompanying family members, including spouses, children, and direct relatives, can also obtain residence permits.


Our legal experts ensure compliance with all eligibility criteria, assist in document preparation, and facilitate the application process, ensuring a smooth transition to Greek residency.

Investment Activity Residence Permits: Driving Economic Growth

For investors focused on contributing to Greece's economic development, Article 16 provides a pathway to residence permits based on investment activity. Key features include:

  • Investment Requirements: Depending on the nature and scale of the investment, up to ten individuals can enter Greece for investment purposes.

  • Application Process: Our team navigates the application process, liaising with consular authorities and the Foreign Funds Directorate to secure residence permits for investors and their families.


From initial application to renewal, Ninopoulos and Partners offer comprehensive legal support, ensuring compliance with all regulatory requirements.

Strategic Investments: A Decade of Opportunity

Strategic investments, characterized by the Interministerial Committee, offer an extended pathway to residency. With initial permits valid for ten years and renewable thereafter, this option provides long-term security for investors and their families.


Our legal experts specialize in strategic investments, providing personalized guidance and support throughout the application process.
