Depending on the duration and purpose of your journey to Greece, you may apply for a short-term “Schengen visa” or a long-term “national visa” for a stay of longer than 90 days.

To facilitate visa applicants, the Greek Consulate General in Istanbul has outsourced the collection of visa applications and biometric data to Kosmos Vize for the areas of Istanbul and Trabzon and to VFS Global for the area of Bursa.

Visa applicants may lodge their application at the closest Visa Center either to Kosmos Vize or to VFS Global. The additional cost of the service fee is paid directly to Kosmos Vize or VFS Global and amounts to 20 Euros.

Alternatively, you may also make an appointment to lodge your visa application to the Consulate General of Greece in Istanbul on the street Turnacıbaşı Sok. 22, Beyoğlu, 34433.
