Chinese Investors to be Presented with ‘Golden Visa’ Opportunity for Greek Investment Products

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.

As recently as March, the Economy and Development Ministry started discussing different categories of investment which 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.

As new negotiations on requirements for obtaining a “golden visa” are underway, senior officials at the Capital Market Commission and Athens Exchange will be taking a trip to China the last week of August. While in China, the officials will present Chinese investors with the opportunity to obtain a “golden visa” through the acquisition of Greek investment products with a minimal investment amount of 300,000 euros.
