Entry restrictions implemented, immigration services suspended
What is the change?
Greece has imposed entry restrictions and suspended immigration services in a bid to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
- Greece has suspended entry to non-EU/EFTA visitors. Non-EU/EFTA spouses and minor children of EU nationals are exempted from the entry suspension. Additionally emergency exemptions may be available in limited circumstances, i.e. medical staff, employment or family emergencies. Greece’s entry ban is consistent with the EU’s move to halt travel to the Schengen Area for 30 days.
- Greece’s land borders with Albania, North Macedonia and Turkey remain closed at this time.
- Immigration authorities have suspended in-person appointments until Apr. 10. Residence permits that expire during this time will automatically be extended, according to the announcement of the Greek Ministry of Migration.
