How can our lawyers in Chania help in foreign investment matters?

If you want to open a company in Greece in the city of Chania and you represent a foreign businessman, the rules of the foreign investment law will apply. Although most of foreign investors can easily arrive in this country for business purposes and benefit from the same rights applicable to Greek businessmen, in certain cases the need to obtain specific approvals and visas will be necessary. 
As a part of the European Union (EU), Greece will receive foreign investors from the EU without any specific formalities, as the EU guarantees the free movement of persons within the EU space. However, for those who live outside the EU or the European Economic Area, the right to start a business will be granted only after applying (and obtaining) visas designed for business purposes. 
Our team of lawyers in Greece can help you navigate better through the provisions of the laws concerning foreign investments – here, our lawyers in Chania can present the available incentives that can be obtained by foreign investors, the steps for obtaining a visa and a residence permit, the type of business visas one can qualify for based on the value of the capital invested in Greece, etc. In the list below, you can discover few important details on matters related to foreign investments: 
  • sectoral investments can be obtained in accordance with the rules of the New Development Law 4399/2016;
  • businessmen who purchase properties in Greece that have a value above EUR 250,000 can obtain residence permits as per the rules of the Law 4251/2014;
  • matters concerning loans in Greece received by foreign investors are regulated by the Law 4354/2015, further amended by the Law 4389/2016;
