I have been advising businesses and individuals on all aspects of immigration, nationality law and Greek citizenship for over 15 years.

Successful assistance in immigration and Greek citizenship.

All matters concerning Greek Citizenship, including the right to Greek Citizenship, the exercise of this right and mandatory prerequisites, are governed by the Greek Nationality (or Citizenship) Code (Law No. 1438/1984), along with the related legislation (mainly Law No. 3284 / 2004). Legislation main elements:

  • A person acquires Greek citizenship at the time of birth, if said person is born to a parent of Greek Nationality – that is, the offspring of a Greek Citizen, even if the parent has not exercised his/her Right to Citizenship
  • A Greek Citizen is a person who is duly registered in the Records of a Municipality of the Hellenic Republic
  • Registration in the Municipal Records of the Hellenic Republic is the legal premise for Greek Citizenship. As such, the Certificate of Registration constitutes legal proof of Greek Citizenship

In order to obtain the Certificate of Registration, Greek citizens permanently residing in the USA apply through the local Greek Consular Authorities, which in turn transmit the application to the competent (Municipal) Greek Authorities, who issue the Certificate of Registration. Both the registrations of the parents’ marriage, as well as, the registration of the applicant’s birth, are prerequisites for the issuance of the Certificate of Registration.
