john paterakisForeigners who want to stay in Greece for a period over 90 days need a Residence Permit issued by Greek authorities in Greece. The application should be made within the first 2 months after arriving in Greece, although it is highly recommended to be fulfilled immediately on arrival in case of common bureaucratic delays.

The application for a residence permit, either first-time permitsor extension should be accompanied by a letter certifying that the applicant is covered for outpatient medical expenses, hospitalization, medical evacuation/repatriation, and medical care related to accidents for at least one year from the start date of the visa.

The health insurance coverage required includes the following:

  1. Hospitalization (minimum coverage: €10,000/year)
  2. Outpatient care / Medical Expenses (minimum coverage: €1,500/year)
  3. Accidents (minimum coverage: €15,000/year)
  4. Emergency evacuation/repatriation of remains
  5. A statement that the coverage is valid in Greece (or “worldwide” or “in the Schengen Zone”).

The required coverage for hospitalization and for outpatient care is low because the authorities stipulate that the insurance company will cover 80% of a bill. The new law (December 2014) does not include a deductible requirement but insurance policies requiring patients to pay more than 20% of a charge will not be acceptable.
