Consul meeting

Honorary consuls and consular officers were invited in May to the Embassy to prepare for the coming tourist season. Their experience, insight and efforts are of great value.

The purpose of the meeting was to exchange experiences. The consular field spans widely - from applications for emergency passports, confirmations and inquiries from people in distress.

Questions regarding travel documents are the most common questions that the Consulates receive. Even if Greece and Norway are part of the border-free Schengen area where travellers don't need a passport for border checks, it is still highly recommended that Norwegian citizens bring their passports when travelling so they can prove their identity if needed (if stopped by police, boarding a plane, etc.). Driving licences or bank cards are not accepted as valid travel documents or proof of identity.

The Consulates are an important part of the Norwegian Foreign Service. Norwegian Honorary Consulates are located in Chania, Heraklion, Corfu, Kos, Rhodos, Patras, Thessaloniki and Piraeus. Here is an overview of the consulates in Greece.
