Application Process

Step 1: Make the desired investment in Greece by visiting the country, surveying potential properties, opening a Greek bank account and transferring the investment funds to that account.

Step 2: Collect and prepare required documents to be attached to the visa application. Once the property is acquired or the business investment is made, the Golden visa application must be submitted.
