Is there a fast-track option for the Greek Golden Visa program?

I heard there is a backlog on applications for this program. Is there any system where one can pay extra fees to expedite the process?

    The only "accelerator" could legitimately be instead of real estate, to invest in fixed deposits, equities and bonds (of Greek enlisted companies to the stock market and Greek debt, in the region of 400,000 to 800,000 euros. If you invest, then you get faster the green light for your application.

    There is not any fast-track option for the Greek Golden Visa program yet. For that reason we prefer to submit applications in specific immigration offices out of Athens, where there is not a high volume of applications, we find appointments easier and the residence cards are issued faster.

    There is no fast track process. All immigration offices are closed right now until mid of April. The only way to make it quicker is to apply at the Immigration office far away from Athens, which is not so busy, in order to get it quicker.
