American and Australian drivers living in and visiting Greece will no longer need an international driver’s license.
The Consulate General of Greece in New York and Australia’s Ambassador to Greece both took to social media on Tuesday to make the announcement.
“Great news for all American drivers! Under the new law 4850/2021, U.S. drivers licenses are now recognized in Greece!” the Consulate General of Greece in New York posted on its Facebook page.
Australian Ambassador to Athens Arthur Spyro wrote on Twitter that the announcement was “a cause for celebration!”
“Australian driver licenses are now recognised in Greece. A measure that will greatly benefit thousands of Australians living in or visiting Greece annually, who no longer need to issue an International Driving Permit,” Ambassador Spyrou wrote.
