Advantages

This residence permit is suitable for those who have a stable income in their country, do not intend to work in Greece and do not want to be tied to a particular country. First of all, we are talking about businessmen, entrepreneurs, potential investors, as well as their family members.

Residence permit in Greece for financially independent persons is issued for 2 years, with the right of subsequent multiple extension every 3 years. The main condition is confirmation of financial independence, which Greece has estimated at 2.000 euros per month + 20% for a spouse + 15% for each child.

Like others, such a residence permit gives you the right to permanently reside in Greece and move freely around the Schengen area.

Mandatory conditions

  • Age at least 18 years old
  • No criminal record
  • Proven source of income
  • 1 year rental agreement
RESIDENCE PERMIT FOR FAMILY MEMBERS
In addition to the applicant, the spouse and children under 18 have the right to obtain a residence permit. The amount of required income in this case increases by 20% and 15%, respectively.
WITHOUT PERMANENT RESIDENCE
As in the case of the "golden" residence permit, you can permanently reside in Greece or not come at all
CHOICE OF TAX STATUS
You choose whether to become a tax resident of the Hellenic Republic. In this case, it is your right, not an obligation.
POSSIBILITY OF OBTAINING CITIZENSHIP
After seven years, provided that you have lived in Greece for more than 183 days each year for 7 years.
