希腊拟扩大黄金签证范围,债券基金、投资公司均可 Bill expands ‘Golden Visa’ criteria scope


#1

2018年,希腊扩展黄金签证投资范围的计划近日又提上议程。当地时间3月8日,希腊经济部正式向议会提交草案,扩大“黄金签证”的发放范围,包括通过投资债券、股票或在银行存款等方式也可以取得居留许可。此前,只有通过购买价值25万欧元或以上的希腊房产才可获得“黄金签证”。此草案或将于2019年6月中旬开始正式实施。

据草案显示,未来除了现行购房换居留政策继续沿用外,欧盟以外的第三国公民还可通过以下任何一种方式获得希腊“黄金签证”:

  • 投资至少40万欧元成立希腊公司;
  • 投资希腊房地产公司至少40万欧元;
  • 在希腊银行定期存款40万欧元至少12个月,并定期续存,以延续“黄金签证”;
  • 通过希腊银行投资期限至少3年、价值至少40万欧元的希腊国家债券;
  • 通过希腊银行投资至少40万欧元到希腊或希腊在国外设立的、专门投资希腊股票和债券的共同基金,该基金总资产至少为300万欧元;
  • 在希腊资本市场投资80万欧元购买股票或公司债券;

草案还规定,第三国公民作为在希腊投资的法人实体,股东或高管(最多3人)可获得居留许可。此外,还将向参与投资项目,负责实施和运营工作的第三国公民提供最多为10人的居留许可。

Bill expands ‘Golden Visa’ criteria scope

An Economy Ministry bill tabled on Friday in Parliament provides for the broadening of the criteria for non-European Union citizens to be granted a five-year residence permit, or Golden Visa , beyond the investment of 250,000 euros in local real estate assets.

The draft law foresees permits being issued for third-country nationals (and their families) who invest a minimum of 400,000 euros in Greek securities and companies, with the aim of increasing foreign direct investment. Therefore a time deposit at a Greek bank of at least that amount for at least 12 months with a fixed order for renewal will suffice for a Golden Visa. Similarly, an investment of the same amount in a real estate investment company will also do.

The new criteria include the investment of a minimum of 400,000 euros in state bonds of at least three years’ duration through a Greece-based bank, or the investment of a minimum of 400,000 euros in a mutual fund set up in Greece or abroad to invest exclusively in shares and bonds trading in Greece and with total assets of least 3 million euros.

Foreigners may also obtain the permit with an investment of 800,000 euros in stocks or corporate bonds in the Greek capital markets.

飞出国: 对比2018年传出的扩大黄金签证范围的政策可看出,此次草案提出的范围更大,不仅购买国债、基金、公司债券等方式可以获得黄金签证,在希腊成立或投资公司也符合条件,希腊还是很欢迎外国投资的,对于投资人来说无疑是个利好消息。

不过需注意,此次的草案提到的投资门槛也提高了,最低为40万欧元,但是购房移民门槛25万欧仍是最低投资额,也是目前欧洲性价比较高的移民方式。随着“黄金签证”备受青睐以及希腊房产市场的触底回升,有意向办理希腊购房移民的申请人要尽快行动。
