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 their valid passport or their Greek identity card, which establish beyond any doubt their identity (name, surname, place and date of birth, name of father and mother).

The text of the power of the attorney must be drafted by a notary public in Greece or a lawyer practicing in Greece, and must be sent prior to the appointment to the Competent Consular Employee. Please note that the drafted text must include the full name and address of the appointee, as well as the purpose of the power of attorney.

If the person who signs the power of attorney does not have knowledge of the Greek language (does not read and write Greek), then an interpreter is required. The interpreter will translate the document for the benefit of the person giving the power of attorney and will co-sign as the interpreter. The interpreter is appointed by the person giving the power of attorney (appointer) and can be either a person of his trust, or a translator from the List of Translators of the Greek Consulate.

Necessary documents the appointer must provide at the signing of the power of attorney:

1) The following application filled out and signed. Application

2) A valid passport or a Greek identity card.

3) A document certifying the exact details of the appointer’s home address (driving license, electricity bill, telephone bill, etc.).
