    Haven't seen this discussed anywhere on here yet, and it might be relevant to some here, or to pass onto others:

    Hmm - I googled this for a while and the only thing that came up was the QF website ;) There are references to the Greek polic taking responsibility for issuing passports and that passports issued up to 31 Dec 2005 only having a max 1 year usage would imply that this is the case.

    Its linked in to the new very secure greek passport.

    I think I made the right choice to travel with an Australian passport. ;) Although a greek passport may come in handy travelling through Europe.

    I also found this snippet on one of the authoritative passport/visa information sites:

    "GREEK PASSPORTS

    With effect from January 1, 2007, all Greek passports issued
    prior to January 1, 2006, will no longer be valid.

    Passports issued from January 1, 2006 now contain a digital
    photo together with a machine readable zone; passports
    issued from August 2006 contain an integrated electronic
    chip.

    Nationals of Greece abroad for business or tourism will be
    able to return to Greece on their old style passport.
    Nationals of Greece residing abroad will also be able to
    enter Greece on their old style passport but they will have
    to apply for a new style passport in Greece before returning
    to their country of residence.
