Things to Watch out While applying for a Greek Visa and Countries That Can Be Entered with Schengen Visa

  1. The application must be made in person.
  2. If you travel with your children, you need to create a separate file for each child.
  3. Your passport must not be worn out, passports that are not in good shape can be returned from the border. To replace your passport you need to apply with your old worn out passport to the nearest police station.
  4. You must be sure that your passport validity covers your travel. Preferably, it should be valid 3 months more after your return date.
  5. If you are invited to the interview, it is very important that you give the correct answers to the questions of the authority. The purpose of the meeting is for the authority to understand whether you meet or not all the requirements for a trip outside the country.
  6. If your manners towards the authority during the interview leave a good impression, you will have more chances of your application being accepted.
  7. You should take care not to make an application with missing documentation. Keep in mind that it is a criminal offense to provide falsified, altered and fake documents.
  8. Proving that you can carry out your journey, it is very important that you present documents that also prove your economic competence.
  9. If you are unemployed and you can not afford a trip, you will be considered a potential immigrant and your chances of getting a visa will be very low. It is worthwhile to think about this and consider saving time and money.
  10. Turkish citizens whose passport has an  entry / exit stamp from Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus may experience problems getting a Greek visa. It can be a better option if you only use your TC identity card for your trips to Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus.
