How long do I need to keep my investment in government bonds to support my Greek Golden Visa application?

I read the requirements of the government bond investment option of the Greek Golden Visa, and understand that the bond I purchase must have a residual maturity of at least three years. Does this mean that my initial resident permit will only be valid for three years? How long do I need to maintain my bond investment to make my resident permit permanent?
