Will I need an ETIAS or a Schengen Visa?
Greece is part of both the EU and Schengen Zone. This means Greece can be accessed by a holder of either a Schengen visa or an ETIAS visa. However, you should consider the rest of your journey or any likely future journeys when applying. A Schengen visa will only allow you to visit one country on your journey (Greece). ETIAS will allow you to visit an unlimited amount of EU countries within a 3 year period. However, remember to check if you are eligible for both visas prior to starting an application.
Why should I visit Greece
Whether you want beaches, parties, good food or history, Greece has something for everyone. Greek gyros and souvlaki are now widely available around the world, but nothing quite matches the authentic taste of having them on the bustling streets of Athens or by the mediterranean coast.
If the hot weather and food can’t draw you in, perhaps the history can. Ancient greek ruins draw millions of people to Greece every year. Especially the Acropolis and Parthenon in the hills of Athens, which tower over the city. Other ruins are also scattered across Greece, including in the bustling city of Thessaloniki, Rhodes and Delphi.
