Greece is the rising star of the EU’s property market, with one of the lowest buy-in for European golden visas. Sable International property team’s Greek specialist, Megan Copley, highlights why.

The Greek Golden Visa is a currently the most straightforward and speedy residency-by-investment programme, where you can enjoy full visa-free travel throughout the Schengen area by investing into one of the best performing property markets globally.

Currently, the entry price for the Greek Golden Visa is €250,000, but Greek Prime Minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, recently announced that this could increase to as much as €800,000. Now is the best time to take advantage of the Greek Golden Visa.

We are planning a Greek property tour in mid-April to view the prime investment areas of Athens, with prices starting at €250,000. Join us to discover the pockets of value we have identified around Greece.

About the Greek Golden Visa

Launched in 2013, the Greek Golden Visa Programme offers visa-free entry to the Schengen area for both business and leisure, and it accommodates families across several generations. Applicants have the option to add their spouse and underage children, as well as children up to 21 years old who are unmarried and financially reliant on the applicant.

A unique feature of the Greek Golden Visa is that you can include your parents in your application without having to demonstrate financial dependency. This means that if your children are over the age of 18, they have the opportunity to be the primary applicant and can include you as the parents in their application.  This application can be fully funded by the parents.

The Greek Golden Visa process is simple, efficient and straightforward. The entire process can potentially be completed within four to six months. There's no mandatory residency period in Greece to maintain your residency status.

Reasons to invest in Greece

An area top trip from Sable International’s property team

Piraeus is an area of fantastic investment opportunity for both short- and long-term rentals. Invest in this booming area where price growth is proven, and rental figures are climbing.

Situated along the Athenian Riviera, just 11km away from central Athens, Piraeus is a stone’s throw away from the port and has easy access to the Greek islands.

This area offers a year-round appeal for corporate rentals and holiday makers and is the perfect high-yielding investment vehicle for the golden visa. The qualifying investment remains at €250,000, unlike its surrounding areas.
