The AIRE Centre is here to help UK nationals and their family members in Greece secure their residence status now that the UK has left the EU. If you require assistance with this process, contact us at [email protected].

We are also operating a phone helpline for those who do not have access to emails or the internet. The line is open from 10am to 12 noon local time on Mondays and Wednesdays. If you or anyone you know is in this situation, please call 0030 698 85 91 229

Information Sheets

We are producing a series of information sheets designed to provide practical information to UK nationals seeking to secure their residence in Greece. We want these sheets to be as helpful as possible and want to know if they have supported you in obtaining a residence permit or if they have assisted you to help someone else do so. Please help us to improve our service by giving us feedback on these resources HERE

Appointments are available for UK nationals in the following locations on the following dates:

  • The islands of the Ionian sea - 2 December, 3 December and 4 December
  • The Peloponnese - 7 December, 9 December and 11 December

More virtual appointments in more locations will be made announced in the new year!

AIRE Centre residence information sessions Crete

The AIRE Centre travelled to Crete on 10th to 17th June to offer confidential one to one information sessions for UK Nationals about securing their residence rights in Greece. The sessions were free and open to anyone in need of individual assistance, but we tried in particular to reach those who do not have access to the internet or the phone. 

We will be planning more visits and opportunities for face to face assistance across Greece throughout the year.
