Please note that appearance in person for all applicants regardless of age is mandatory for biometrics. Subsequent Schengen visa applications within 5 years may be submitted through authorized representative only if the applicant has a Greek visa VIS.

Visa applications should be lodged no later than 15 calendar days prior to departure. Applications may be submitted at the earliest 3 months before departure.
