KEP (Citizen Service Centers) announced that terminals would be available from Monday, June 18, 2007 at all Greek Consulates and Embassies worldwide to allow Greek citizens living abroad to complete transactions with the Foreign Ministry of Greece.
Unfortunately, the service for Greeks abroad shut down on June 25, 2014.
Therefore, Greeks living abroad need to get birth certificates, marriage certificates and military documents the usual way: a) Write, call or fax the appropriate municipality office to send you one from the οικογενειακή μερίδα/oikogeneiaki merida; b) Contact a KEP Citizen Service Centre in Greece during regular business hours; c) Ask a relative to help.
Greeks abroad informed me that most Greek consulates/embassies never had KEP services available, so it’s not a huge loss .
