Greek consulate: proxenos program


OCTOBER 23, 2016

greece usGreeks living abroad are welcoming a new program that will help get documents and official certificates from the Greek Consulate services online. The program is known as Proxenos. As a first step, the consulates will issue birth and family status certificates as long as the applicant is registered in a Greek municipal personal records database. The services will soon extend to providing more certificates. Now the program is being implemented in the Greek Consulates in Australia and in Dusseldorf, Germany. What about the United States?

Greece's Minister of Foreign Affairs Nikos Kotzias and Interior Minister Panos Kouroublis have announced the launch of an initiative, titled Proxenos, that will allow Greeks living abroad to apply for official certificates and documents from the country's consular services online.

We are watching closely and will let you know as soon as any mention of the Proxenos program will appear on any of the consular sites. In the meantime, if you need to obtain a document from Greece, please visit, to find local companies in Greece that will assist you.
