It offers benefits like unrestricted travel and potential tax advantages.

Over 60 countries globally offer golden visa programs, with European countries including Portugal, Spain, and Greece being some of the most popular.

We are excited to bring the Greek Golden Visa program to Filipino investors. This is a program perfect for those looking for profitable investments or those who want to live in one of the most beautiful places in the world,” Luis added.
