In general, persons interested in obtaining vital records need to be aware of the following:
• For a vital record (birth certificate, marriage certificate, death certificate) to be drawn up at one of Greece’s Consular Authorities abroad, the event being recorded needs to have occurred in the region of that Consular Authority’s responsibility.
• Parties interested in obtaining birth or marriage certificates must appear in person at the Consular Authority. A death certificate requires that the relative, funeral home employee or other legally interested party declaring the death appear in person at the Consular Authority.
