Find out more based on your situation:

I lived legally in Greece for at least 5 years be​fore 31 December 2020

In Greece, it is not necessary to apply for a new residence status. However, you should make sure that you comply with EU rules before the end of the transition period as regards:

Even if you have a permanent residence document under EU​ rules, you and your family members have the right to request the new biometric residence card showing that you enjoy the rights defined in the Withdrawal Agreement. We strongly recommend that you do so. The card shows your right to enter Greece and exempts you and your family members from ETIAS and visa requirements when entering Greece.

Until you get the new biometric residence card, you can continue to use your current residence card, if you have one.

For more information about where and how to apply for the new residence card for yourself and or family member(s) (including non-EU family members), check with the Greek national authorities.
