information on Greek nationality can be found on REFWORLD. The

individuals of Greek descent must submit the following original
documents when applying for Greek citizenship: Birth Certificate;
Certificate of Baptism; Marriage Certificate; Current Passport;
Father's Birth Certificate; and, Parents' marriage certificate from
church and marriage registration certificate from the city. This
source also indicates that, if the father was not registered in
Greece, there is a need to also submit the grandfather's
certificate of registration from the municipal records of the
city/town where he was registered as well as the grandparents'
marriage certificate (n.d.).
