Financially Independent Persons Visa

This service is available across Greece

Who Is This Service For?

Residence permits are issued to Non-EU nationals who have sufficient resources in terms of stable annual income to meet their subsistence needs.

Currently by way of joint ministerial decision the income deemed to be sufficient for the purposes of this type of residence permit is €2000 per month for the main applicant. In the event of his/her spouse joining the application, this amount is increased by 20% i.e. to €2400 per month.

These permits shall have a duration of two years and may be renewed for three years. Please note, these residence permits shall not grant access to the labour market.

Applications may be accompanied by their family members to whom an individual residence permit shall be issued following a successful application, which shall expire together with the residence permit of the sponsor. The requirement of sufficient resources for subsistence shall be met either by each member of the family or for all family members as a whole.

In the event that the applicant is entitled to a pension from the Greek social security fund, there is no income requirement for renewal of this residence permit.
