Greece is a member of the Schengen Agreement.
- There are normally no border controls between the countries that have signed and implemented the treaty. This includes most countries of the European Union and a few other countries.
- Before boarding an international flight or ship, there is usually an identity check. Sometimes there are temporary checks at land borders.
- Similarly, a visa issued for a member of the Schengen area is valid in all other countries that have signed and implemented the treaty.
- For more information on how the system works, the member countries and the requirements for your nationality, see Travelling in the Schengen area.
Nationals of Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Barbados, Mauritius, St. Kitts and Nevis and Seychelles may work in Greece without having to obtain a visa or other authorisation for the duration of their 90-day visa-free stay. However, this possibility to work without a visa does not necessarily extend to the other countries of the Schengen area.
Detailed regulations in your country can be found at the Greek Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
