Restrictions apply only to non-European citizens who want to buy real estate in border areas such as the eastern Aegean, the Dodecanese, Thrace and other regions of Northern Greece.
The removal of these restrictions is achieved by the grant of a license granted by the Ministry of National Defence following a request submitted to the appropriate committee of the Decentralized Administration in that region.
Documentation required for the lifting of the ban:
• Registration data of the property in the Land Registry and statement of intended use
• Photocopy of valid passport
• Recent Criminal Records certificate from the competent Ministry of the country of purchaser
• Power of attorney by which a lawyer will be authorized to sign the application in the name and on behalf of the buyer (if the buyer wishes, for his own convenience)
All documents should be certified and officially translated in Greek language.
