Talks of Expanding the ‘Golden Visa’ Program for Investors in Greece

The “Golden Visa” program is one in which non-European Union citizens can obtain a visa by a minimum investment in a property of 250,000 euros.

There are no immediate changes to the program underway, however, on Thursday the Economy and Development Ministry had discussions as to what other categories of investments could possibly be added in order to encourage more investments in Greece for the Golden Visa, as done in other European countries, such as purchasing stocks and bonds, ekathimerini.com reported.

Another topic at hand was whether investors might be able to obtain Greek citizenship as an incentive to foreigners. At this time, the ministry has yet to announce if any new sectors will be added to the program.
