Information Notice for Individual Applicants

Dear Applicants,

Please visit travel.gov.gr for the step-by-step guide for travelling to Greece in the framework of preventing the spread of COVID-19.

Kindly be informed that the Greece VAC in London is operational accepting visa applications from 09:00 until 13:30 upon online appointment. In our VACs in Manchester and Edinburgh visa applications can be submitted from 10:00 until 13:00 upon online appointment. You may book your appointment here.

Information notice to EU Family members: Kindly be advised that applicants who submit their visa application at all Greece Visa Application Centres in the U.K. under the EU Family members scheme by providing the required documentation as per our website, are temporarily exempt from paying the respective service fee.

As operations at the Visa Application Centres for Greece in the U.K. resume, you are kindly asked to adhere to the highest standards of health and safety based on the recommendations of the World Health Organization and local health authorities. In case you have any symptoms of COVID-19, please, DO NOT visit our VAC. As the VAC cannot be crowded, you may be asked to wait outside the building until the time of your appointment. While waiting inside, please try to keep social distance of 2 meters. Please note that your appointment slot will be rescheduled to a later date in case you have any COVID-19 symptoms. Kindly ensure that you have prepared your Visa application and all necessary documents in advance, as the Business Centre at the London VAC is not currently in operation (click here for more information regarding the requirements).

Protecting the health of the applicants and our employees during these testing times of the pandemic is of utmost importance. We are following the recommendations of the Health and Governmental authorities and have put in place best practices to minimize the possible exposure of applicants and employees to the coronavirus. Applicants, if they wish, can avoid a return to the VAC in London and have their passports returned via the optional courier service at an additional cost that will be kept to the minimum. For urgent cases, passports may be collected at the VAC in London from 16:00 until 17:00.

We are taking care of your health and hope for your understanding and support. We look forward to your cooperation and strict adherence to above provisions to ensure a healthy and safe environment for you and our staff.
