Greece is a European country, which is the most attractive for obtaining a residence permit. Excellent climate, interesting culture, original history, progressive social atmosphere, relatively simple legalization – there are all the factors that can attract those who want to get residency in a developed European state.
Recently, the Greek leadership has further facilitated the mechanism of the immigration procedure. So, in the current year 2016, the mechanism for registering citizenship for children of foreign citizens that were born in the Greek territory was much simplified. Citizenship can be obtained without problems, provided that at least one of the parents has legally stayed in the country for at least five years. Also significantly simplified requirements for financially independent individuals.

& # 8212; the ability to travel to other countries without first obtaining visas;

Prospects for obtaining status.
The most common reasons (categories) for registering residences in Greece are:
& # 8212; official employment for a contract in any field, including in the agricultural sector;
& # 8212; reunification with immediate relatives who are already in Greece at the moment;
& # 8212; the conclusion of the marriage contract with the residents;
& # 8212; receiving education as a student in an accredited higher education institution;
& # 8212; conducting commercial activities and investing in the economic sector of the state;
& # 8212; golden visas when buying a property in Greece worth a quarter of a million euros;
& # 8212; economic independence of the applicant, who is able to confirm his monthly profit in the amount of 2000 euros.
To obtain the type of any category, there are different rules for the composition and layout of the documentation, as well as different requirements for entry permits (visas). Before starting work on the residence permit in Greece, the applicant will have to issue a visa D. If the applicant has real estate worth 250,000 euros, he can issue a visa C. Investors who have invested more than 300,000 euros in the country are offered a two-year residence permit. The owners of a gold visa can count on a five-year-old look. The remaining categories are usually given a 1-year view for their first appeal.
Businessmen who seek to open businesses or carry out business activities in the Greek territory, in addition to the standard set of documentation will have to provide a detailed business plan with well-reasoned development opportunities. In addition, they will need to register their company in local services, present the authorities with an account statement with a minimum amount of 60,000 euros for a private enterprise and 20,000 euros for the company.
Residency for owners of real estate.
Recently, Greece has significantly increased its attractiveness for non-residents, using for this purpose a special mechanism for obtaining “golden visas”. Since 2016, owners of gold visas will get easier to get a residence permit, because their 5-year-old type of real estate will be credited on time, which is necessary to provide residence. In addition, the owners of real estate will be able to reunite not only their children and spouses, but also the elderly of close relatives. All of them will have the opportunity to get a view without the right to official employment in the country. This option is quite attractive, because it provides for an early issuance of a visa type D and a low tax rate on property at a level of 3-5%.
There are other features of this residence permit, namely:
& # 8212; it is permitted to acquire plots of land;
& # 8212; Real estate can be bought for residential or commercial purposes;
& # 8212; the price of the acquired property is calculated before the collection of the tax;
& # 8212; the payment for the real estate should be made by one person, and the money borrowed in the bank is not subject to use for this purpose;
& # 8212; during the filing of the application for residency, it is required to present purchase / sale agreements, an extract from the state register, a notarially certified certificate of the full repayment of the amount for the acquired objects;
& # 8212; having such a residence permit, you can apply for citizenship in Greece after seven years;
& # 8212; the acquired residential property can be legally leased and this does not threaten the landlord with a withdrawal of status.
In addition to buyers of immovable property, this type of residency can also be received by tenants who have rented property for a long time (at least ten years). Registration of all types of agreements must be carried out with the personal presence of both parties, the remote option in this situation does not work. In the case where the value of the immovable property is equal to the amount that is less than 100 000 euros, such real estate will not be subject to annual taxation. Pay the necessary fees will only be required during the registration process of the purchase. Thus, the authorities stimulate potential buyers to purchase several small units of real estate immediately.
Making out the process of buying on legal grounds, you will need to take into account such moments:
& # 8212; Arriving in the country by a temporary entry permit, you need to provide an identity card;
& # 8212; it is necessary to pay taxes, they must be paid by a notary certifying the real estate transaction;
& # 8212; you need to get a certificate from the state register, which will become the main document for the design of the species.
Obtaining a view for financially independent personalities.
Russian citizens who have a normal material security have the opportunity to take advantage of recent changes in the Greek laws on obtaining residence permit. Recently, the law was repealed, according to which it is required to continuously spend half the calendar year inside the state. Thus, residents of Russia with sufficient income received beyond the territorial borders of Greece, have a convenient opportunity to get a look.
Among the shortcomings of this category, the species will note that the residents of the country, as well as their close relatives, who are reunited with the owners of the species, do not receive the right to work in Greece. Still udin uncomfortable minus – the need to renew the papers every year, which confirm financial well-being.
In all other aspects this species can be called a rather convenient mechanism. Of its significant features, we also note:
& # 8212; financial standards: 24 thousand euros per year per owner of the species, an additional 20% for each spouse, 15% to an underage child from that family;
& # 8212; sources of profit can be any legitimate and confirmed by official papers income (income from the rental of real estate, pension accruals, etc.);
& # 8212; conditions (availability of a place to live, timely extension of the received status, own health insurance policy, etc.).
