Greek citizenship


Golden Visa Greece

“Where you want to retire is always a difficult decision. Orience has advised us in the whole decision making process and has accompanied us throughout the whole process, not only until we obtained the Golden Visa but also supported us in our relocation. The whole application was done on our behalf and we only had to travel to take the biometric data. It has been a process that Orience has made simple and agile for us, keeping us updated at all times on the status of our application.”
