Greece is a member of the Hague Convention of 1961 and the FCDO Apostille only should suffice for documents to be used in Greece.
If a Greek translation is performed in the UK by an official translator registered with the General Consulate of Greece in London, the Greek translation is required to be attested by the Consulate. In this case, the Consulate requires the original English document to be Apostilled by the FCDO and the Apostille also must be translated into Greek.
The FCDO Apostille fee is £40 for standard service, £100 for premium service or £35 for e-Apostille service.
The attestation of a Greek translation fee is £25.80 per translation/document.
Turnaround time is likely to be 1-2 working days for standard service (paper-based), 5-6 hours for premium service or 5-48 hours for the e-Apostille service.
The consular processing time is likely to be 1 working day and a prior appointment is required for submission to the Consulate.
For the Standard Apostille Next-Day Service (paper-based Apostille), we must receive the original documentation by 11:00 am to be despatched the next working day.
The Premium Apostille is a limited service the FCDO can provide for a few eligible types of documents and they require evidence to support the urgency requirement. Please contact our Legalisation Team for further details.
Documents eligible for the e-Apostille must be first notarised with an Advanced Electronic Signature (AES) or a Qualified Electronic Signature (QES).
Method of payment: cash only (Greek Consulate).
Opening hours: 9:30 am to 2:30 pm Monday to Friday
