A valid passport is required for all foreign nationals entering Greece and it is advisable to ensure that your passport has at least six months validity when visiting any foreign country. Along with 24 other European countries, Greece is a signatory to the Schengen Convention. That means a visa to any other signatory state of the Schengen Agreement is valid in Greece too (in most cases). No visa is required for citizens of other EU member states, and citizens of some selected nations with whom the European Union or Greece have special treaties can enter Greece for up to 90 days in a 180 day period without a visa. This includes Australian, New Zealand, Canadian and US citizens, among many others. Be aware that the 90 day limit runs concurrently across the whole of the Schengen zone and the countdown begins when entering any of the signatory countries. It does not reset when travelling into another country covered by the Schengen agreement.
Visas cannot be issued in Greece so you must hold one before entry if required to do so. You may be required to show immigration officials that you have return or onward tickets and adequate means of support and accommodation upon entering Greece.
More info on the Schengen Agreement and travel documents for EU citizens can be found at http://europa.eu/travel/doc/index_en.htm
There is an airport tax of around 12 euro when you depart Greece for an international destination. This tax is usually added at the time you purchase your airplane ticket.
As entry requirements may change from time to time it is strongly advised that you check with the department of foreign affairs or your local consulate or embassy for the current requirements.
