Most other nationals will need a visa.

Non-Canadians must apply IN PERSON at the Greek Embassy or Consulate for the European Customs Treaty Zone visa. Visa seekers are advised that they must seek visas directly and in person from the embassy or consulate as they will be interviewed and fingerprinted and biometrically scanned
