* Can a non-EU citizen buy property in Symi?

All EU citizens have equal rights concerning the purchase or sale of property in Greece. Non EU citizens are also free to buy property in Greece, however with some restrictions as described below:
Symi is located in the 100km border zone. For this reason, only members of the EU countries may buy properties on the island of Symi. However, non EU citizens could get a special permission from the ministry of defense. A local lawyer will advise you on that matter, and we at DOMA Real Estate will follow-up all necessary formalities as mentioned above. The cost for these formalities is more or less included in the costs as already mentioned.
