How to obtain a Residence Permit to move to the Greek Island of Antikythera

To apply for a residence permit on the Greek island of Antikythera, follow the standard procedure for obtaining a residence permit throughout Greece. Here are the steps you should normally take:

Determine your eligibility.

Make sure you match the eligibility requirements for a residence visa in Greece, such as having a solid reason for staying (e.g., work, study, family reunification, retirement).


Gather the required documents:

Collect all of the documentation required for your specific residence permit category. The required documents may vary depending on the reason for your visit, but they often include:
Passport or Travel Document


Proof of financial means

Prove your financial means using the last six months of your bank statements. Talk to your banker and request the documents. Remember to ask your banker to stamp and sign the bank statements to make them authentic. Bank statements that are not stamped or signed may be rejected for immigration purposes.


Proof of health insurance.

Ensure that you have good health insurance to cover you and your family if traveling with family members to stay secure in case of sickness. You may go for 100% coverage or co-pay, whatever works best for you. The challenge with co-pay is the fact that a family member may get sick, and you will need to pay the difference, which you may not have at the time.

Lease agreement or evidence of accommodation.

It does not necessarily have to be a lease agreement; if you are a home owner, you share copies of your titles. The immigration officers just want to see stability.

Criminal Record Certificate

Visit the Directorate of Police in your home country and apply for a police clearance certificate. If you do not get a positive one, ask the administrators what you can do to rectify your state with the law. Once it is all done, apply for the police clearance certificate and use it soon before it expires. It is advisable that you make the application way later during your application process.

Medical certificate

Make it a habit to visit your primary doctor for a physical checkup, even if you are not feeling well. Make sure you get all the necessary tests done, and if there is any problem, have it sorted out before you visit the doctor who will be assigned to you for immigration. Immigration takes medical care seriously, and a small issue could potentially disqualify you.

Evidence of the cause for your stay (e.g., employment contract, enrollment in a Greek institution)

If you are currently employed, you should have the employment offer letter at your disposal. If your employment is on a contract basis, then you should have an officially signed contract from your employer. Besides the signature, your contract should also be stamped.

If you are getting into the country as a student, you should be able to prove that you are a student. Include evidence that you have paid your tuition fees.

ISubmit your application.

Depending on your situation, you may have to submit your application to a Greek embassy or consulate in your home country, or you may be allowed to do so in Greece.
If applying in Greece, go to the local immigration office or the nearby Greek police station.
Pay fees:

Pay the mandatory application fee.

The charge amount may vary depending on your residency permit category.

Attend an appointment.

You may be required to attend an interview at the Immigration Office or other appropriate authorities or to provide biometric data.

Wait for the application to be processed.

Waiting for processing may be stressful, especially if the process is taking longer than expected. Stay calm, do not contact the embassy, and wait until the embassy reaches out to you. It may take some time, but a representative will definitely get back to you. The processing time can vary, so it is critical to verify with the authorities the most recent processing schedules.
Receive your residence permit.

If your application is approved, you will be issued a residence permit that stipulates the terms and duration of your stay.
Please keep in mind that exact requirements and procedures may change over time, so check the Greek Ministry of Migration and Asylum’s official website or contact the nearest Greek embassy or consulate in your home country for the most up-to-date information. Additionally, because Antikythera is a small and remote island, there may be particular local regulations or procedures, so it’s best to investigate locally whether there are any additional steps for residence permit applications on the island.
