How can I partake in the Greek Golden Visa program through a company?

I heard that it is possible to apply for a Greek Golden Visa through a legal entity. I own 75 percent of a company in my home country and I am wondering if I can use it to apply. If I purchase a property in the name of my company, will my family members and I enjoy the same Golden Visa privileges as individual applicants do?

    Yes, it is possible to apply for a Greek Golden Visa through a legal entity. But you need to own 100 percent of its shares. Also, this legal entity must have representation in Greece. Yes, if you meet these requirements, your family members will enjoy the same privileges as individual partners do.

    Beneficiaries of the right of the permanent resident permit, which shall be renewed every five years, are third-country citizens who own real estate property in Greece, either personally or through a legal entity of which they own the total of the company shares, provided the minimum value of the property is 250,000 euros. If the owner has acquired the property through a legal entity, the applicant must own 100 percent of the company shares. An additional precondition is that the company should be either a Greek or an EU one. So you cannot proceed the acquisition with your home company, if you are interested in Golden Visa program.
