An Letter of Acceptance is required for visa.

You should contact the nearest authorized Greek Embassy or Consulate and receive information regarding all the necessary documents, as well as the formal application procedure.

All European Union (EU) citizens do not need to have a VISA to enter Greece. However, a valid passport is, of course, necessary. In each airport of Crete, there is one line for European nationals and a second line for everyone else.

You need to go in person to the Greek Embassy or Consulate in their home country and hand in the required documents, as well as the Letter of Acceptance.

Attention: It is advised to start the visa application process as soon as possible, since the procedures sometimes require a considerable amount of time.

The cost for Visa  will be paid by the participant’s own resources.
