  • FAST issuance: the Permit can be issued in 10 working days provided that all documents are in place. Our Company proudly has the fastest track record in the country, and the first PR (in 2013).

  • Schengen Visa: Greece is part of the Schengen Treaty, hence the permit is also a Schengen visa (attached is a document/ PR presentation including all Schengen countries). The advantage here is, you can travel direct from your country to any Schengen country using your Greek Permit. In addition, you can stay in any Schengen country for 90 days every six month period.

  • SIMPLE procedure: No other requirement is needed other than purchasing a property with a minimum value of €250.000 (i.e neither savings account is a must to maintain nor to visit Greece for an X number of days).

  • Family Members: the PR goes to the Buyer, the Buyer's wife, the parents of both the Buyer and his wife, PLUS their children below the age of 21 (and then they can extend till 24 year of age).
