A child of a Greek person obtains the Greek nationality at birth. It is only required to prove that he/she is the origin of a Greek. Even if the parents of the individual have not obtained Greek citizenship, if he/she may prove through public documents that one of his/her ancestors was Greek, then he/she may be entitled to Greek Citizenship. Once the individual has obtained Greek citizenship, he/she may issue a Greek-EU passport and travel and work anywhere in the European Union.
Those who are not an origin of a Greek, may also acquire Greek citizenship through naturalization. This is based on a long term residency in Greece.
