Golden Visa Centrale (GVC), a leading consultancy in residency by investment, unveils a tailored Greek Golden Visa program for Filipino investors.
Vicky Luis, president and founder of GVC, emphasized the increasing appeal of residency-by-investment programs for investors worldwide, including in the Philippines.
“Residency-by-investment programs have been getting traction for investors across the world, including the Philippines. These programs not only grant investors and their families the freedom to travel, to study, to work but also offer opportunities for wealth diversification,” said Luis.
The Golden Visa program enables individuals and their families to obtain foreign residency or citizenship by meeting a minimum investment requirement set by the host country’s government. It offers benefits such as unrestricted travel and potential tax advantages.
More than 130,000 people have obtained similar visas in European countries, including Portugal, Greece, Italy, and Spain. Over 60 countries globally offer golden visa programs, with European countries such as Portugal, Spain, and Greece being among the most popular.
Established in 2019, GVC has successfully processed and facilitated hundreds of golden visa applications across various European countries and the U.S.
The number of golden visa applications from the Philippines has increased by at least 30 percent annually since 2019, indicating a growing trend of Filipinos seeking international residency and investment opportunities.
“We are excited to bring the Greek Golden Visa program to Filipino investors. This is a program perfect for those looking for profitable investments or those who want to live in one of the most beautiful places in the world,” Luis added.
The Greek Golden Visa program, initiated in 2013, granted 31,000 golden visas in 2022, injecting €2.3 billion into the Greek economy. With an initial investment of €250,000, the program offers Filipinos the chance to invest in Patra, the third-largest city in Greece and a thriving university hub on the Peloponnese peninsula.
The investment comes with a range of compelling benefits, including a five-year permanent residence visa, the possibility of family reunification for up to three generations, remote application convenience, visa-free travel within Schengen countries, fast processing times, and no stay requirement.
Luis also highlighted the program’s appeal, citing its vibrant living experience and a reasonable investment threshold, making it an attractive option for those seeking affordable and desirable residency opportunities.
The program, along with GVC’s other offerings, aligns with the company’s mission to provide clients with the freedom to enjoy beautiful landscapes while actively contributing to the economic development of cities and countries worldwide.
