As operations at the above Visa Application Centers for Greece resume, our VACs adhere to the highest standards of health and safety based on the recommendations of the World Health Organization and local health authorities: to this end, you will need to self-disclose COVID-19 symptoms, to undergo temperature screening at the entrance of the VAC using non-contact equipment, to wear appropriate mask and be checked contactless by the security service of the VAC. In case you have any symptoms of COVID-19, please, DO NOT visit our VAC. Applicants without mask and applicants with a temperature above 37 degrees Celsius will not be allowed to enter the premises. As the VAC cannot be crowded, you may be asked to wait outside the VAC. While waiting inside, please keep social distance of 2 meters vis-à-vis others. Please note that your appointment slot will be rescheduled to a later date in case you have any COVID-19 symptoms. We suggest you prepare your application and all necessary documents in advance (click here for more information) to avoid waiting time at the VAC and make your payment at the VAC by credit card.

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. In order to avoid a return to the VAC, the passport return for applicants that have submitted their applications in Moscow VAC is only via the courier service at an additional cost that will be kept to the minimum. Applicants in all other Visa Application Centers in Moscow, St. Petersburg and Novorossiysk Jurisdictions are also highly recommended to have their passports returned via the courier service.
