Golden Visa

The Greek government is planning to raise the minimum threshold for Golden Visa applicants investing in real estate to €800,000 in high demand areas, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said in remarks to Parliament. The move reflects the ongoing success of the program, which has brought in more than €1.5 billion in investment since it was launched in 2014. Last year, the government doubled the minimum threshold to €500,000 for qualifying properties in the center of Athens and Thessaloniki, as well as the popular tourist islands of Mykonos and Santorini.
