Passports & Visas
Passports & Visas

Ensure a smooth and enjoyable journey by remembering to carry the necessary travel documents, avoiding any unforeseen events.

Greece, as an EU member state that has ratified the Schengen Agreement, allows citizens to move within the EU by simply presenting their identity card, eliminating the need for a passport.

A passport, however, proves beneficial for various transactions, including foreign exchange and purchases. Additionally, airlines and other carriers often require a valid passport and/or ID card, or another form of official identification. It's important to note that a visa is not required for short stays of up to three months.

For citizens of countries outside the Schengen Agreement, entry into Greece and the EU requires a visa. It is recommended to gather information from local Greek embassies or consulates, or consult your travel agent for guidance on the visa application process.

You can verify whether a visa is required for your visit to Greece by checking the official website of the Greek Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Visitors with a visa staying in Greece are advised to have suitable insurance coverage to address medical or other emergencies during their stay.
