How can one get a European residence permit under Greece's golden visa programme?
Investor's first visit to Greece
The investor chooses a property, receives an individual tax number, opens an account with a Greek bank and signs the property purchase agreement.
Investor's second visit to Greece, 1.5–2 months later
The investor applies for a residence permit and receives a certificate confirming the receipt of application documents, which allows him/her to legally remain in Greece for one year.
Investor's third visit to Greece, 1–2 months later
The investor's family members must visit Greece to have their fingerprints taken. The residence permit will be ready a few weeks after this.

Frequently asked questions
Will I have to pay exactly €250,000 to get a Greek residence permit?
Not really. You need to consider the extra costs related to any property purchase deal, which typically amounts to 7–10% of the property value. This includes ownership transfer tax, registration tax, notary and legal fees. Costs related to the residence permit includes stamp duty (€500) and legal fees of about €1,000 per principal applicant and €500 per family member.
Does one need to visit Greece three times to purchase a property and receive a residence permit?
Some procedures require the applicant to be present: opening a bank account, filing documents and fingerprinting. It usually takes at least one month to register a real estate with a mortgage registry. As such, one short visit to Greece is too short to purchase a property and apply for a residence permit. Tranio's partners in Greece can help investors submit documents and fingerprints in one day. This way, the number of visits can be reduced to two. If the investor is prompt and efficient, the whole process will take only two to three months.
I do not want to move to Greece. What should I do with my property there?
The purchased property can be rented out. The most cost-effective scenario is to rent the property out for short terms to tourists as this brings a higher yield (5% per annum after all costs and taxes) than long-term leases. Real estate prices in Greece are lower than in most European countries and the country's tourist numbers are growing rapidly – international tourist arrivals have grown from 15 million in 2009 to 25 million in 2016.
