Previously, SchengenVisaInfo.com reported that the Greek Embassy in New Delhi has hired additional staff to expedite visa processing. The decision to hire additional staff came as the embassy was processing an incredibly high number of visa applications. Moreover, such a decision followed multiple complaints about delays in visa processing.
The Greek Embassy in New Delhi said a few weeks ago that the number of people applying for Schengen visas had increased significantly as soon as COVID-19 restrictions were lifted. Therefore, due to high demand, visa processing centers were experiencing a backlog. On the other hand, applicants faced long waiting times, which also impacted their vacation plans.
Now that the embassy has announced that all issues have been resolved, Indian nationals no longer need to worry about delays.
Greece removed all of its COVID-19 entry restrictions earlier in May. All travelers can now enter Greece without restrictions, which means they do not need to show COVID proof.
