Registration (Birth, Marriage, Divorce, Death)

General Information

1. The process of registration commences by declaration of the birth certificate at the Registration section of the Consular Office, thereafter the birth is entered into the Special Registry Office Athens whereupon the process of registration is completed by transference of the details of birth within the family record of the Municipality where the Greek citizen’s family record is registered.

2. Alternatively, citizens may register the certificate directly with the Special Registry Office in Athens (this does not apply for the registration of births concerning unmarried parents where the father is Greek and the mother is not Greek) or authorize a third party to act on their behalf by means of a notarized power of attorney.

3. The Consular Office in London can register only the births, marriages and deaths that took place in the UK. If the above occurred in another country, you must contact the Greek Consular Authorities in the respective country of the Special Registry in Athens.
