Residence Permit

GREECE can grant residence permits for Non-EU citizens and their families with the acquisition of property above €250,000.

The residence permits are renewed every five years, as long as the Non-EU citizen keeps the ownership of the property. This permit is not a work permit.

Once the non-EU citizen acquires a residence permit in Greece, then he is allowed to live in Greece, exit and re-enter Greece any time without a visa and travel to all Schengen countries without further documentation other than his passport.
