Passport & Visa
Greece is a member of the European Union and belongs to the Schengen area.
Please note that all travellers, except for those exempt from visa requirement, should apply for the corresponding visa at the local Greek Diplomatic or Consular Offices before their arrival. People in possession of a valid residence permit or a valid long-term visa issued by another Member State, should check the validity of their visa in order to avoid any inconvenience.
If an entry visa is required, please allow sufficient time for this procedure:
Submit your visa application in person, two months before you plan to travel to Greece in order to avoid any inconvenience.
The process may take longer in certain countries, so we recommend that you contact the nearest Greek Diplomatic or Consular Offices to determine your personal case.
