Power of Attorney

The person who gives power of attorney must be legally capable of doing so; i.e. they must be of sound mind and of legal age (over 18 years old). Those who wish to give power of attorney must do so in person, before the Consular employee, providing at the same time documents which establish beyond any doubt their identity (name, surname, place and date of birth, name of father and mother).

The full name (father's and mother's included) of the proxy (the person to whom the power of attorney is being given) shall also be provided at the time that any certificate of power of attorney is to be drawn up and signed.

If the person who signs the power of attorney does not know Greek at all, then an interpreter is required. The interpreter will translate the document for the benefit of the person giving the power of attorney and sign it as interpreter.

There is no official Translation –Interpreting department within the Consulate. However, should you wish to identify or contact a Translator – Interepreter, you can contact the official translators:
