Passport / Visa

Greece can be visited visa-free for up to 90 days by citizens of Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia, Israel, UAE and most countries in America. If you are unsure whether or not you need to apply for a visa, we recommend contacting the embassy or consulate in your country. International (non-Schengen) travelers need a passport that is valid for at least 3 months after the end of their trip in order to enter the Schengen zone. Citizens of Schengen countries can travel without a passport, but must have a valid ID with them during their stay.

Chios Ferry Port

Chios Ferry Port

Regular ferries connect Chios to Cesme, Turkey, and multiple destinations across Greece. There are daily departures to Cesme operated by EturkLines and Turyol, as well as multiple ferries that run to nearby islands such as Mykonos, Samos, Lesbos, Limnos, Patmos, and more. There is also a route that connects Chios to Athens and takes roughly 7,5 hours to travel (the ferry arrives in Piraeus). There are multiple daily departures during the summer months; ferries run on winter schedule during the off-season (roughly October through March), which normally means fewer departures.
