Passport And Visa Requirements
Greece is a member of the European Union as well as a member of the European Economic Area. All nationals of other European Union and European Economic Area states, including those of the new member states, are permitted to enter Greece with a valid national ID card. This also applies to non-member states that are affiliated with the European Union, such as Monaco and Andorra. Citizens of European Economic Area states that are not members of the European Union, such as Switzerland, Norway and Iceland, may also enter into Greece with a valid national ID card.
Nationals of non European Union or non European Economic Area states are required to have a passport to enter Greece. Most will also require a visa. Nationals of Argentina, Australia, Canada, Chile, Croatia, Israel, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, and the United States, are allowed a 90-day visa-free stay. Nationals of Brazil and Uruguay are allowed a 60-day visa-free stay.
Please contact your local Greek consulate prior to your trip for the latest entry requirements.
In 1992 Greece signed up to the Schengen Agreement. This means that nationals from other participating states (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Iceland, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, and Sweden) can enter Greece without passport checks.
