There has been a recent amendment to the Greek Residency-by-Investment Law (the so-called Golden Visa Law), i.e. Law No. 4251/2014.
On the 12th of June 2018, Law No. 4546/2018 was enacted, which resulted in a wide-scale restructuring of the government fees which must be paid upon submission of each application for a Residence Permit.
Specifically, according to Article 38, Paragraph 8 of Law No. 4546/2018, the Government Fee which must be paid upon submission of each Residency-by-Investment application has been raised to the amount of 2,000 EUR per individual applicant with effect from 12 September 2018 (the current amount is 500 EUR).
Namely, for all applications submitted before that specific date, the government fee will still be at 500 EUR for each applicant, but for all future applications the required fee will be 2,000 EUR.
Please note that minors, i.e. persons under 18 years of age, will remain exempt from the payment of application fees, as in the previous regime.READ MORE
