Greece Overnight Stay Tax
From 1 January 2018, you’ll need to pay an Overnight Stay Tax which has been introduced by the Greek Ministry of Tourism and aims to enhance the State’s revenue in the context of the current fiscal adjustment program. This will be collected from you when you get to your accommodation.
The tax works out between 0.50 – 4 Euros per night. The amount you’ll pay will depend on the official rating of your accommodation.
When and how to pay:
You’ll be asked to pay the tax when you check-in at your accommodation.
Why do you have to pay:
The tax is something new and specifically aimed at tourists. It’s a cost beyond our control and the suppliers of the accommodation. It’s a Government imposed tax that has to be paid when you stay in accommodation in Greece.
|Type of Accommodation||Mid – High Season (01/03-31/10) Euros/Day of stay|
|5 Star Hotels||4|
|4 Star Hotels||3|
|3 Star Hotels||1,5|
|1-2 Star Hotels||0,5|
|Apartments – all key categories||0,5|
Depending on your country of origin, you might need a passport and a visa; you could obtain a visa through the Greek consulate nearest to your residence.
Call your bank or your credit card company to let them know that you will be using it in Greece. Make yourself aware of their charges when withdrawing money from ATMs.
Contact your phone company in order to make sure that can use your mobile phone in Greece. If you have a number bought in EU, roaming charges do not apply anymore.
The Electric Current in Greece is 230V AC (50Hz). Appliances from North America require a transformer and British ones an adaptor.
In order to have access to necessary health care, tourists from member states of the European Union (EU) wishing to visit Greece must be holders of the European Health Card(EHIC) or any other legal Community document issued by their competent social security agency. Tourists from countries other than the member states of the European Union must consult their social security agency for information before travelling.

Currency declaration upon arrival According to EU law, if you’re carrying cash valued at €10,000 or greater, you are required to declare that sum to the authorities of the Member State you are entering or exiting. Therefore, upon arrival at a Greek airport and prior to exiting the Baggage Claim area, it may be necessary for you to proceed to the Customs Office for a currency declaration.
Currency declaration prior to departures If you are flying to a non-EU destination, after passing through Passport Control you are required to proceed to the Customs Office for currency declaration. In addition, in case you are traveling to an EU member state and carrying cash of a value of €10,000 or more, you must also declare that sum to the Customs Office.

Alcohol and tobacco When traveling from one EU country to another, you can transport tobacco and alcohol products for personal use but not for resale. Under EU law, you do not have to prove that the goods are for your personal use if you are carrying quantities below than those defined on the EU website.
Restrictions of animal products When traveling within the EU, transportation of animal products does not fall under general restrictions since all EU countries have to adhere to the same strict veterinary standards. If, however, you are transporting meat or dairy products and are not traveling from an EU country, there is danger that you may enter with animal diseases.
Animals and plants When traveling within the EU you have the right to transport animals and plants. However, given that the majority of EU countries have strict rules in place regarding the transportation of endangered species and products derived from them, you will need a permit to travel with them.
