Driver Licences Recognition

As of 5 November 2021, Australian driver licences are recognised in Greece. Individuals who hold a valid Australian driver licence no longer need to also have an International Driving Permit to be able to drive in Greece. A measure that will greatly benefit thousands of Australians living in or visiting Greece annually.

The Greek law stating the recognition of Australian driver licences is Law 4850, Article 25, Para 3, published in Greek Government Gazette A 208 – 05.11.2021.
