In some countries it is possible. Residence-for-property purchase programmes are known as
Golden Visas programmes. Greece, Spain, Latvia, and Portugal offer the most popular
Golden Visas in Europe. The Greek residence
permit is the cheapest and can be obtained by buying a property worth at least
€250,000, while organising all of the documents costs about €19,000. Certain countries
offer citizenship to property buyers — for example, an investor can get their hands on a
Cypriot passport by buying a property
worth at least €2M.
