Over the phone is immpossible to get s hold of them. Went there in person to find out what paperwork i needed in order to get that Plireksousio. Their communication over e-mail was very quick though. When my wife went to sign and pay for the Power of Attorney(Plireksousio) They charged her 169$ which seems very expensive, because the stamp (to grammatosimo)says 20€. Anyway overall they are getting better. My wife said the lady that served her was very kind and polite.

Very Rude! Shame on them!!!
I was always very proud to be Greek, although born in Toronto, Canada. I live in Greece for some years after my studies, and had both good and bad encounters. As I currently live in Toronto, I thought I would renew my "Greek Passport" not that I really need it, but want to keep my heritage alive! Well now I remember why I didn't renew it for so many years! I am saddened to say the attitude of the person, (I was going to say gentlemen,but....) in charge of the passport issuing, is disgusting! Why on earth do they place these people in such roles, no manners, he thinks we are at his mercy! Shame on him and the Greek Consulate for allowing such behavior! Does anyone ever read these comments! The receptionist was extremely polite, be he was so RUDE, ARROGANT, ABRUPT, He spoke as though he looked down on me and was doing me a favor! A favor? That is what he is paid to do! A paper pusher! who thinks he is all that and a bag of chips! SHAME on him and whoever he reports to! No wonder Greece is where it is today.....these are the people that represent Greece outside of Greece, well imagine internally!

Rude behavor
Who do they think they are? Three times I had to visit their office last month. Always the same rude behavior, and lost in space. They don't have a clue of rules and laws in Greece. They tell different things each time. The worst though is that they have an attitude that they are doing us a favor. If it wasn't for us Greek/Canadians, they would be coming here.They should be grateful not arrogant. I still haven't finished my paper work. They keep postponing everything I guess because they want to read the law books that they have under the table...xaxaxa They are a joke all alone. The staff that was there years ago was accurate, helpful,professional but most importantly POLITE. These ones don't even know the meaning of that word.Send them back THEY ARE NOT WELCOME HERE.Does the Greek government know how incompetent they are? The power of attorney that I had to do is still pending (she has to do her studies she didn't have books up in the mountains) and as for the rest of the documents that I had to do who knows.....

Horrible Service and Bullying!
Avoid this office at all costs! They do not understand the concept of customer service!

Good and Bad
The last time I had to go there, they seemed very disorganized and a little stressed at reception but not really rude. Once called in, the people were quite friendly and helpful and helped us with what we needed at the time.

Then we asked about the process of getting a Euro passport. They said they would definitely help with that but the person in charge of that was going on vacation so we were asked to call back in three weeks. We called back a few times and left voicemails but never heard back.

That was a couple of years ago. We'll cross our fingers that someone new has replaced the non-replying employee and we'll try again soon!

This is tough to get used to in Canada which has a pretty decent system for most things!
I'm not alone

I have had the misfortune of having to deal the Greek Consulate and the same rude woman everyone else has had not only did she yell at me in the waiting area she later denied having met me. Honestly, 4 trips back and forth because they deliberately withhold information. How do these people get and keep their jobs? Perhaps the video and audio recordings should be reviewed nightly and attitudes would change.
