Issue a visa to visit Greece
Greece is a Member-State of the European Union and member of the Schengen Agreement.
In order to visit Greece, you will need a Schengen visa. A Schengen visa is a short stay visa that allows a person to travel to any member of the Schengen Area, for stays up to 90 days for tourism or business purposes.
The Schengen visa is the most common visa for Europe. The holder can enter, freely travel within and leave the Schengen zone from any of the Schengen member countries. If you plan to stay in Greece or any other Schengen country for more than 90 days, you must apply for a national visa of that European country and not a Schengen Visa. For Greece, it is a “type D Visa”.
EU/ Schengen border officials may also ask for other information and documents such as sufficient funds for the trip, how long you intend to stay, the purpose of your entry, travel insurance etc.
