This is correct. I was told the same-thing here in the US prior to my last trip to Greece this past Fall. Have fun !My travel agent here in Australia said that when I travel to Greece my passport must have at least 6 months left before expiry.
This differs from country to country.
Does anyone know if this is a Greek government requirement?
