Passports & Visas

  • Citizens traveling inside the E.U. just need to display their police I.D. Card without the need of a passport. However, a passport is necessary for a number of other transactions, such as currency exchange, purchases, etc.
  • Visas are not required by citizens of Member-States of the Schengen Agreement. Greece follows the provisions of the Schengen Agreement, which abolished controls on common internal lands, at air and sea borders and allows Member-State citizens to travel around without a visa for a short stay period of up to three (3) months. However, airlines and other carriers require a valid passport and/or police I.D. Card or other form of official identification means.
  • Citizens of the majority of the countries that are not Member-States of the Schengen Agreement require a visa to enter E.U. Visitors from these countries can obtain further information from the Consulates in their countries, or even from their travel agencies.
  • Visas are not required by holders of valid passports from the following non-E.U. countries if they want to visit E.U country of their selection and remain in the country for up to 3 months (90 days) within a chronological period of 6 months:

Andorra, Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Costa Rica, Croatia, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Israel, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Monaco, New Zealand, Vatican, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Saint Marino, Singapore, South Korea, USA, Uruguay, Venezuela.

Note: During their stay in E.U., visitors with a visa must also have suitable insurance coverage for emergency medical or other needs.
