Overview: Greece is a stable democracy, is a member of the European Union and has a modern infrastructure. The main economic activity in Greece is tourism, so the provision of services in this area is very good. The official language is Greek. English is widely spoken. Other languages, such as Spanish, French and Italian, are also widely spoken in tourist areas. In the context of the current political and socioeconomic situation in Greece, travelers are advised to be aware, through the media, travel agencies, airlines and hotels, of possible strikes that may affect basic services such as transportation.
Documents required: Greece is a member of the Schengen Agreement, which allows Argentines, as tourists, to travel within its member countries for a maximum of 90 days. Those who exceed this limit may be deported and/or fined upon leaving Greece or other countries that are part of the agreement. When entering the Schengen zone, the authorities of the country of entry may require a return air ticket and proof of financial solvency. It is recommended to check with the airline and the Diplomatic Representation of the country of entry (most Argentines enter Greece with flights from Madrid, Rome or Paris) about the requirements. To enter Greece, as tourists, Argentines need to have their passport with a minimum validity of six months. No visa is required.
