General Information

Applicants who wish to apply for a Visa are requested to kindly read the information on this site carefully. The guidelines listed on this site are to help you prepare your documents as accurately as possible. This will reduce the risk of your application being incomplete or take a longer time to be processed.

Please note that personal appearance may be required, a Visa / Immigrations officer may require a personal interview at The Hellenic Embassy, Iran prior to a decision being taken on your application.

Visa Applying Process

All applicants must have reliable intentions supported by actual travel arrangements (accommodation and return flight) for the whole trip. In case of multiple destinations in other Schengen Countries, a detailed travel plan showing all relevant arrangements (including internal connections) must be provided and explained. Applications failing the verification process, through checks carried out on hotels, inviting parties and airlines, will be discarded with prejudice.

Important Information on Biometrics: As part of the visa application procedure, all applicants (irrespective of the age) must come in person to complete their biometric procedures. Your application shall not be accepted if you have temporary injuries, or have a coating of henna (or similar) on the hands, on date of visit to the Visa Application Centre.
