Passports & Visas

So, you've decided to visit Greece and you need to know if you need a Visa and/or a Passport. Here is a list of links and information we've gathered for you, which will put you on the right track.

European Union

If you are a European Union citizen you do not need a Visa or a Passport in order to visit Greece. However you should always have your national ID card with you, in case you need to prove your identity to the local authorities. Driver's license, credit cards, tax cards etc are not accepted as proof of identity. If your country of origin is the U.K., Bulgaria, Ireland, Croatia, Cyprus or Romania, then showing your national ID card or passport is mandatory.

Rest Of The World

If you are a citizen of any country outside the E.U. then you definitely need a Passport. As for any Visa requirements, please go to the following link to check the Visa status of your country for traveling to Greece.
