To issue a new passport, the Embassy abroad take receipt of the necessary documentation, this is sent to the competent Directorate of the Ministry of the Interior.

In case of loss or theft, the holder of the lost passport must report the loss immediately to the nearest police or consular authority (the same holds true if the lost passport is found). The above authority carries out an investigation (which may last up to 3 months) into the circumstances under which the passport was lost or stolen. During the investigation, a new passport is not issued to the applicant unless it is deemed necessary that the applicant travel abroad to receive medical treatment.

In cases of emergency, provisional travelling documents can be issued by our Consular Missions abroad for the repatriation of Greek citizens.

Greeks who have been hospitalized abroad can bring the relevant paperwork (receipts, medical diagnoses) to the nearest Greek Consular Authority to have them certified and sent to the competent insurance carrier in Greece. If the person in question is in Greece, they may send the paperwork for certification to the Greek Consular Authority in the country where they were hospitalized via the Foreign Ministry’s E3 Directorate, and said Authority will then forward the certified paperwork to the competent insurance carrier in Greece.

To verify the authenticity of a document issued by a state that has not ratified The Hague Convention, the holder of the document for verification applies to the Foreign Ministry’s E3 Directorate. The E3 Directorate takes receipt of the document and forwards it to the Greek Consular Authority in whose region of responsibility the document was issued so that said Consular Authority can contact the agency that issued the document in question and verify its authenticity. If the authenticity is verified, the Consular Authority certifies the authenticity of the document.

Please note: Under the Schengen Visa Information System (VIS) implemented by all Schengen States’ Consulates in South Africa as of June 6, 2013, all visa applicants will have to lodge their applications IN PERSON in order to provide their biometric data (10 fingerprints digitally captured and digital photograph taken). This biometric data will be stored for 5 years in the framework of VIS, period during which the applicant may not apply in person for subsequent Schengen visas. 

Important: It is highly recommended that you apply 15 days in advance (but no more than 3 months prior to departure)
