According to the Greek Law 3386/2005 for the "Codification of Legislation on the Entry, Residence and Social Integration of Third-Country Nationals on the Greek Territory", the Greek government gives the option to third-country nationals to issue a residence permit in Greece on the basis that they are financially independent persons.
More than 1,500 residency permits for Greece immigration have been granted since the introduction of the Golden Visa Investor Program.
