A double entry visa will allow you to return to the zone a single time after exiting once, while a multiple entry provides you with unlimited entries and exits to the Schengen area. 
  • Select Greece as your primary destination if that is the Schengen country where you will spend the most time on your trip.

Safety and Security

Terrorism: Credible information indicates terrorist groups continue plotting possible near-term attacks in Europe. All European countries remain potentially vulnerable to attacks from transnational terrorist organizations. In the past year, there have been multiple terrorist attacks in Europe. Extremists continue to focus on tourist locations, transportation hubs, markets/shopping malls, and local government facilities as viable targets. In addition, hotels, clubs, restaurants, places of worship, parks, high-profile events, educational institutions, airports, and other soft targets remain priority locations for possible attacks. U.S. citizens should exercise additional vigilance in these and similar locations.

For more information, see our Terrorism page.

Strikes and Demonstrations:

  • Domestic strikes, demonstrations, and work stoppages are common throughout Greece and can become violent. Stay informed through local news, hotel security, the U.S. Embassy website , and the Consular Section’s Facebook page . Enroll in STEP to receive alerts sent by the Embassy.
  • Transportation sector strikes interrupt traffic, public transportation, taxis, seaports, and airports. Confirm domestic and international flights before heading to the airport.
  • Avoid all areas affected by the annual November 17 demonstrations, including the U.S. Embassy.
  • Anarchists and criminals have used university campuses as refuges. Demonstrators frequently congregate in the Polytechnic University area, Exarchia, Omonia, and Syntagma Squares in Athens; and at Aristotle Square, Aristotle University, and the Kamara area in Thessaloniki.
  • Violent anarchist groups have joined public demonstrations to clash with police and vandalize public and private property.

Crime: Crimes against tourists, such as pick-pocketing and purse-snatching , occur at popular tourist sites and on public transportation, especially the metro. A common tactic is one person causes a commotion on the metro or pushes travelers to distract them while another person snatches the belongings. Thieves also seek out and break into rental cars to steal passports, valuables, and luggage. The Embassy has received reports of alcohol-induced attacks targeting individual tourists at some holiday resorts and bars.

Take the following precautions:

  • Be cautious and aware of your surroundings.
  • Do not leave bags unattended, especially on the metro and the Athens Airport train or in your vehicle.
  • Avoid standing near bus or train doors. Thieves often strike as the doors open then disappear into the crowd.
  • Use alcohol in moderation and remain in control.
  • Never leave drinks unattended in bars or clubs.
  • Be discreet when discussing plans and organizing belongings upon arrival.
  • Protect yourself and your money by using well-lit, public ATMs.
  • Be aware of internet scams with online thieves posing as loved ones or romantic interests.

See the  Department of State  and the  FBI  pages for information on scams.

Victims of Crime: Report crime to the local police and contact the U.S. Embassy at (+30) 210-720-2414 or the Emergency after-hours telephone (+30) 210-729-4444 if you require assistance. Remember that local authorities are responsible for investigating and prosecuting crimes.

See our webpage on help for U.S. victims of crime overseas .

  • Help you find appropriate medical care
  • Assist you in reporting a crime to the police
  • Contact relatives or friends, with your written consent
  • Explain the local criminal justice process in general terms
  • Provide a list of local attorneys
  • Provide our information on victim’s compensation programs in the United States.
  • Provide an emergency loan for repatriation to the United States and/or limited medical support in certain cases of destitution
  • Help you find accommodation and arrange flights home in certain cases of destitution
  • Replace a stolen or lost passport

Domestic Violence: U.S. citizen victims of domestic violence may contact the Embassy for assistance.

Tremors and earthquakes occur regularly.  Forest fires are common, especially during the dry summer months, and occasionally cause road closures. In the event of a natural disaster, follow the instructions of local authorities. Contact the General Secretariat for Civil Protection, which responds to emergencies, at 210-335-9900 for more information. Operators speak English. Monitor the U.S. Embassy Athens’ website and Consular Facebook page .

Tourism : The tourism industry is unevenly regulated, and safety inspections for equipment and facilities do not commonly occur. Hazardous areas/activities are not always identified with appropriate signage, and staff may not be trained or certified either by the host government or by recognized authorities in the field. In the event of an injury, appropriate medical treatment is typically available only in/near major cities, such as Athens or Thessaloniki. First responders are generally unable to access areas outside of major cities and to provide urgent medical treatment. U.S. citizens are encouraged to purchase medical evacuation insurance. See our webpage for more information on insurance providers for overseas coverage.

Local Laws & Special Circumstances

Criminal Penalties: You are subject to local laws. If you violate local laws, even unknowingly, you may be expelled, arrested, or imprisoned. Possession of a U.S. passport will not prevent you from being arrested, prosecuted, or jailed.

  • Penalties for possessing, using, or trafficking in illegal drugs are severe, and convicted offenders can expect long jail sentences and heavy fines. Marijuana is illegal in Greece.
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs could land you immediately in jail.
  • Photographing military installations is prohibited and may lead to arrest.
  • Mace or pepper-spray canisters are illegal in Greece. Such items will be confiscated, and police may arrest or detain you.
  • Carry your passport or some form of photo identification at all times. Police may detain you for questioning if you do not have proper identification with you.

Some crimes are also prosecutable in the United States, regardless of local law. For examples, see our website on crimes against minors abroad and the Department of Justice website.

Arrest Notification: If you are arrested or detained, ask police or prison officials to notify the U.S. Embassy immediately. See our webpage for further information.

Faith-Based Travelers: See our webpages for details:

  • Faith-Based Travel Information
  • International Religious Freedom Report – see country reports
  • Human Rights Report – see country reports
  • Hajj Fact Sheet for Travelers
  • Best Practices for Volunteering Abroad

Greek Antiquities: Customs authorities strictly regulate the export of Greek antiquities, including rocks from archaeology sites. Do not remove anything, no matter how small, from archaeological or historical sites. Do not purchase protected antiquities and carry receipts for any purchases that may appear to be antiquities.

Military Service for Dual Nationals:

  • Greek males between 19 and 45 are required to perform military service.
  • If the Greek government considers you to be a Greek citizen, you may be required to fulfill this obligation whether or not you consider yourself Greek or possess a U.S. or third country’s passport.
  • Authorities can prevent you from leaving Greece until you complete your military obligations . Contact the Greek embassy or nearest Greek consulate with questions.
  • Generally, required military service will not affect your U.S. citizenship, but contact U.S. Embassy Athens if you have questions.

LGBTI Travelers: There are no legal restrictions on same-sex sexual relations or the organization of LGBTI events in Greece. LGBTI individuals in Greece are protected by anti-discrimination laws, and gender identity is among the grounds covered by laws against hate speech; however, non-governmental organizations report that social discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity is widespread in Greece and violence against LGBTI individuals remains a problem.

See our LGBTI travel information page and section six of our Human Rights Report for further details.

Travelers Who Require Accessibility Assistance: While Greek law prohibits discrimination against persons with physical or intellectual disabilities and local law requires access to buildings, sidewalks, and public transportation, application and enforcement of these laws is lacking.

  • Handicapped parking spaces and sidewalk ramps are often occupied or blocked by parked vehicles.
  • Sidewalks often are narrow with broken paving stones and large holes and obstructed by trees and street signs.
  • Buildings with ramps might lack accessible elevators or bathrooms.
  • A small percentage of public buildings (primarily in Athens) have full accessibility. Some buildings and intersections include accommodations for visually-impaired travelers.
  • The Athens metro and Athens International Airport are fully accessible with ramps and elevators.
  • Ask your hotel about accessibility before booking.

The Deputy Ombudsman for Social Welfare handles complaints related to persons with disabilities, especially those related to employment, social security, and transportation.

Students: See our students abroad page and  FBI travel tips .

Women Travelers: See our travel tips for women travelers .

Most public medical facilities in Greece offer adequate care, although service quality and hospital appearance may differ from the United States. Some private hospitals have affiliations with U.S. facilities and provide high-quality care. Many doctors trained in the United States or elsewhere in Europe.

  • Private hospitals usually require proof of adequate insurance or cash before admitting a patient. Patients bear all costs for transfer to or between hospitals.
  • Public hospitals often employ minimal nursing staff overnight and on weekends in non-emergency wards. Consider hiring a private nurse or having family spend the night with the patient, especially a minor child.

We do not pay medical bills. Be aware that U.S. Medicare is not accepted overseas.

Medical Insurance: Make sure your health insurance plan provides coverage overseas. Most care providers overseas only accept cash payments. You may be required to pay upfront and seek reimbursement from your insurance company. See our webpage for more information on insurance providers for overseas coverage .

We strongly recommend that travelers purchase travel insurance before their trips to cover medical evacuation.

If traveling with prescription medication, check with the Greek Embassy or consulate in the United States , the Customs office at Athens International Airport (+30 210-3542126) or the National Organization of Medicines ( [email protected] , www.eof.gr , +30 213-204-0000) to ensure the medication is legal in Greece. Always carry your prescription medication in original packaging with your doctor’s prescription.

Vaccinations: Be up-to-date on all vaccinations recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Travel and Transportation

Short-term Car Rentals: Greek law requires that visitors carry a valid U.S. driver’s license and an international driver’s permit (IDP), even if the rental company does not request to see your IDP. The Embassy does not issue IDPs. You must obtain your IDP in the United States from the American Automobile Association ( AAA ) or the American Automobile Touring Alliance ( AATA ). Contact AAA directly to inquire about their mail in option that will allow you to apply from overseas, but note that it will likely take days or weeks. If you drive without these documents, you may face high fines (1,000 Euros or more) or be responsible for all expenses in the event of an accident.

Road Conditions and Safety: Greece has one of the highest traffic fatality rates in the European Union. Exercise extreme caution as both a driver and a pedestrian, and follow these tips:

  • Drive defensively.
  • Expect heavy traffic, obscured traffic signs, and vehicles traveling at high speeds.
  • Driving at night in inclement weather and on mountain roads can be hazardous.
  • Local law requires all motorcyclists to wear a helmet.
  • Check for motorbikes between lanes and on either side of you.
  • Do not rely on lane markings. On many two-lane highways, slower traffic will drive on the shoulder, and cars will pass straddling the center double-yellow line.
  • Review your insurance coverage before renting. Most insurance companies require that you have both your valid U.S. license and an international driver’s permit (IDP) for coverage in Greece. Small motorbike and all-terrain vehicle (ATV) rental firms frequently carry no insurance and require customers to cover the cost of all damages to their vehicles. Your insurance company may not cover two-wheel or ATV rentals.

Traffic Laws:

  • Talking or texting on a mobile phone while driving is illegal. The police check phone records when investigating accidents.
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is illegal, and police conduct random alcohol testing.
  • A Greek license is required if you stay more than 185 days in Greece. Contact the Regional Office of Transportation and Communications for more information.

See our road safety page for more information, including information on IDPs. Visit the Greek National Tourist Office website for more helpful tips.                                        

Public Transportation: Purchase and validate your ticket by touching it to the pad on the turnstile prior to boarding a bus or train. Inspectors randomly check for tickets. If you do not have a ticket, have the wrong ticket, or fail to validate your ticket, you could be fined up to 60 times the basic fare.

Aviation Safety Oversight: The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has assessed the Government of Greece’s Civil Aviation Authority as being in compliance with International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) aviation safety standards for oversight of Greece’s air carrier operations. Further information may be found on the FAA’s safety assessment page .

Maritime Travel: Mariners planning travel to Greece should monitor U.S. maritime advisories and alerts at www.marad.dot.gov/msci , the U.S. Coast Guard homeport website, https://homeport.uscg.mil , and the NGA broadcast warnings website https://msi.nga.mil/NGAPortal/MSI.portal . Greece implemented a Recreational and Daily Tour Cruise Ships Fee on all private and professional leisure ships with a total length of over seven meters, regardless of flag, in Greek territorial waters. Mariners should consult https://www.aade.gr/polites/etepai for details.

Can Indians Get a Greece Visa on Arrival?

No, Greece does not offer visas on arrival to Indian passport holders. Indians need to have an approved Schengen visa prior to their departure to Greece.

Applying for a Schengen Visa at a Greece Diplomatic Mission:

Single Country Visit:

Apply at the Greek consulate if you're visiting only Greece as your single Schengen country and it's your first entry point.

Visiting Multiple Schengen Countries:

  • If visiting several Schengen countries and intend to stay for a longer duration in Greece, then apply at a Greek consulate.
  • If visiting several Schengen countries with similar stays (e.g., tourism in Greece, Italy, and Spain), apply at the consulate of your first entry country—Greece, in this case.

Main Purpose of Visit:

Your main purpose determines where you apply. If it's unclear and you're visiting multiple countries, submit your application to the embassy or consulate of your first entry point to the Schengen area.

For instance, if your main purpose is attending a conference in Greece while touring multiple countries, apply at the Greek consulate.

Schengen visa(C-type): A Schengen Visa of the short-stay Type C is designed for individuals intending to visit Greece and stay within the Schengen region for a maximum of 90 days within a 180-day period (equivalent to 6 months). This visa caters to a range of purposes, including tourism, business, visiting family or friends, cultural and educational endeavours, and sports activities. Additionally, the Greece business visa is suitable for those traveling for meetings and conferences.

National Visa(D-type): A long-stay 'D' visa grants its holder permission to enter and reside in Greece for a period exceeding three months. This visa may be granted for various purposes, including employment, study, research, participation in cultural, scientific, or religious events, as well as family reunification.

Those holding a national visa are obligated to apply for a residence permit in Greece immediately upon their arrival in the country.

Applicants are required to submit a long-stay visa application for Greece, along with the requisite supporting documents tailored to the specific purpose of their intended stay.

Documents Required for Greece Visa Application

Mandatory documents, supporting documents, photograph requirements and specifications for greece visa application.

Photo requirements for a Greece visa for Indians include :

Recent Photo: Your visa photo must be no older than 6 months

Size and Dimensions: Make sure your photo adheres to the following specifications:

  • Dimensions: 35mm by 40mm (width x height)
  • Your face should occupy 70 to 80% of the image
  • The background should be plain white.

Greece tourist visa

Head Position: Ensure your head is fully visible and centred in the photo.

Eyeglasses and Headgear: If wearing eyeglasses, no glare should obscure your eyes. Religious headgear is allowed, but your entire face (from chin to forehead, including cheeks and ears) must be fully visible.

Quality: The photo should be in colour, high-resolution, and well-lit, with no shadows, red-eye, or reflections.

The typical processing time for Greece visa applications ranges from 21 to 28 working days. However, some applications may require additional processing, which could extend the duration up to 45 days. Visa applications should be submitted no earlier than 6 months before the planned departure date.

Teleport’s Expert Tip

If you're applying for a visa at a Visa Application Centre in India other than the one in New Delhi, remember to allocate an extra 10-15 days to the minimum processing time.

This is because your application will first be sent to the GVC World New Delhi VAC for Greece before being forwarded to the Embassy of Greece - Consular Office in New Delhi the following day. We’ve observed multiple delays in Greece visas over the past year and hence sooner you apply, the better

Note(Fee Exemption)

Children under 12 years old and individuals with diplomatic or service passports are exempt from paying the Greece Schengen visa application fees

A tourist visa for Greece permits a stay of up to 90 days within a 180-day period. The exact validity can vary at the embassy's discretion, potentially extending up to 1 year, although this isn't guaranteed for every application.

With a short-term visa, you can stay in Greece and other Schengen countries for a maximum of 90 days within any 180-day timeframe.

Yes, Indian citizens applying for a Greece visa must have travel insurance with a minimum coverage of 30,000 Euros. It's wise to explore health insurance options from reputable providers like Tata AIG, Digit Insurance, HDFC Ergo, and more. This ensures you're adequately prepared for any unforeseen circumstances during your travels.

Following are the reasons for Greece Visa Rejection:

  • Submission of fraudulent documents: Some applicants attempt to deceive authorities by submitting fake documents instead of genuine ones requested by the consular office.
  • Misrepresentation of the purpose of the trip: If your travel plans do not align with the information provided, such as discrepancies in accommodation or flight details, your visa may be rejected.
  • Suspected ulterior motives: If authorities suspect that your reasons for visiting Greece are not genuine, such as posing a threat to the state, your visa application may be denied.
  • Inadequate travel history: Insufficient travel history, particularly for the type of visa being applied for, could lead to a rejection of your visa application .
  • Damaged passport: Presenting a passport in poor condition, such as torn or missing pages, could result in the denial of your visa application.

You have the option to appeal against this decision. When a Schengen visa is denied, the specific reasons for the refusal, along with the necessary appeal procedures and deadlines, are conveyed through a standard form provided by the consulate of the Member State that issued the refusal.

In situations where one Member State represents another for visa issuance, the appeal process aligns with the Member State that made the ultimate decision.

Should your application be rejected, you are free to submit a new one. However, it is advisable to carefully review the grounds for the previous denial and, where necessary, make adjustments before reapplying.

It's important to note that the visa fee is non-refundable, even in cases of visa refusal, as it is designed to cover the costs associated with processing the visa application.

You are free to reapply if your visa application has been denied. There's no waiting period required after a refusal to submit a new application. However, it's advisable to address the reasons for the previous refusal before reapplying.

Please note that submitting a new application doesn't guarantee approval.

If you have connecting flights through a Schengen state airport, it's crucial to differentiate between two scenarios:

  • Transit through the international transit area of an airport: This means you stay within the airport's international transit area and don't exit it.
  • Transit via the territory of a Member State at an airport: In this case, you leave the international transit area of the airport.

If you have an Airport Transit Visa (ATV), it allows you to pass through the international transit area of a Schengen State's airport and wait for your connecting flight to a non-Schengen country. However, it does not permit you to enter the Schengen territory, such as staying at a hotel or taking a connecting flight to another Schengen State.

Travelling to a Schengen State through another Schengen State's airport is not considered airport transit. Similarly, if you're travelling to a non-Schengen country through two Schengen state airports, it's not considered airport transit either. Flights between two or more Schengen States are viewed as "domestic" flights. Depending on your nationality, you might need a short stay visa to enter the Schengen area, even if your stay is just for a few hours and you remain at the airport (outside the international transit zone).

Can I Extend My Greece Tourist Visa?

Typically, extensions are granted if you've spent fewer than 90 days in the Schengen area within the last 180 days and your current visa is still valid.

When requesting a visa extension, you need to demonstrate that circumstances beyond your control, such as force majeure, humanitarian reasons, or serious personal matters, prevent you from leaving the Member States' territory before your visa or authorised stay period expires. 

Upon arrival at a Greece airport, ensure a smooth exit by following these steps:

  • Prepare your travel documents: Have your passport with stamped sticker visa, return ticket, and hotel bookings ready for quick verification by immigration authorities, facilitating a smoother arrival process.
  • Unaccompanied minor guidelines: If you're travelling alone as a minor, stick close to your designated flight attendant for safety. Identify your assigned adult at the destination airport to ensure a secure arrival.
  • Familiarise yourself with Greece's regulations: If you have items to declare or require baggage inspection, proceed to the customs area. Understanding the Customs Regulations at Greece Airports can help avoid complications.

In summary, obtaining a Greece tourist visa for Indians requires careful planning and attention to detail. From understanding the Greece visa requirements and application process to organising the necessary documents and securing travel insurance, thorough preparation is crucial for a successful trip.

While Greece does not provide visas on arrival, applicants can apply through authorised channels like Teleport or Government visa portal . It's important to adhere to Greece's entry regulations upon arrival at the airport to ensure a seamless entry procedure.

With adequate preparation and adherence to the guidelines, Indian travellers can make the most of their visit to Greece, immersing themselves in its rich cultural heritage, picturesque landscapes, and vibrant cities with confidence.
