Investments-Greek Residency

Invest in the European Community and in the free movement of capital and individuals by investing in Greece.  

Greece has significant investment opportunities arising primarily from its geopolitical position, its inclusion in the European Union and the Eurozone, its natural resources, its human resources and its infrastructure.  

In line with current trends and in an attempt to encourage foreign investment in Greece, the Government has set the foundations for the provision of benefits and now offers preferential immigration categories for business investors.  

The legislative framework for the creation of a friendly environment for the development of strategic and private investments has been implemented through the Ministry of Development, Competition, Infrastructure, Transport & Networks in collaboration with the Ministry of Shipping and Aegean Sea.  This framework  promotes and supports residence in Greece for investors and nationals of third countries (non-members of E.C.), through the granting of residency permits administered by way of exception to executives of strategic investment programs as well as to  foreign commercial-industrial and maritime companies that will be operating in the country.  

Simultaneously, there is a legislative provision in force for the authorization of special residency permit administration to nationals of third countries (non-members of E.C.) and the members of their families for the purchasing of real estate in Greece.
