Greece: Type D Visa (Remote Work Visa)

The Type D Visa allows economically self-sufficient people (such as self-employed people, remote workers, startup founders, business owners, or retirees) to move to Greece with their families.



Greece’s unrivaled history and natural beauty make it a top choice for travelers, and destinations like Athens, Santorini, and Crete are at the top of many people’s lists. Remote workers also benefit from a low cost of living and relaxed, friendly lifestyle. On top of these attractions, Greece made headlines in 2021 for a new law allowing remote workers to pay only 50% income tax for their first 7 years in Greece. 

Greece is expected to create a simplified Digital Nomad Visa with an online application in 2021—check back soon for updates! For now, the Type D Visa is the best choice for remote workers hoping to move to Greece.
