Is Greece a safe place to live?

Source: Entralon
When choosing a country to move to, you definitely have to think about personal and family safety. The Greek Government has formed special police forces to assist the international community with that factor in mind. So, the issue of safety and security should not be a concern while deciding to buy property in Greece.

According to the US travel insurance agency's report for BHTP, Greece has been ranked 9th out of 20 countries in terms of travel safety. 

The overall crime rate still remains quite high in large cities, such as Athens. Naturally, some areas are undesirable to stay in alone at all. Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis has been working on the problem as well taking new anti-crime measures. Illegal squats are being cleared and police officers patrol the areas. Also, some measures are being taken to reduce unemployment. 

Greek  Police

There are different categories of police in Greece. Tourist police for newcomers and expats operate in a variety of ways. 

They  speak mostly all the common languages. It's a great advantage compared with some other countries for those who come and don’t speak Greek fluently.. 

Greeks are not irascible by nature, and even serious disputes are usually resolved without physical violence. 

Social problems

High unemployment and increasing number of migrants have created a bad backdrop in the past but this is changing now. If you are worried about your property when you are away, you can buy an alarm system and ask your neighbours and the local police to look after your property.


If any doubts remain, consult our experts before buying a property. Entralon managers can help you with any questions you may have.
