REGISTRATION OF BIRTH
The Registration of Birth must exclusively be carried out by both parents within ten (10) calendar days from the date following the birth, at the Birth Registration Office of our Hospital.
The Registration of Birth of a newborn may be carried out by one parent only, provided they have a signed and validated authorization from the other parent. The authorization must state whether the newborn will be insured under the mother’s or the father’s social insurance fund, provided both parents work. Irrespective of the social insurance fund of the newborn, the mother will need to authorize her spouse to claim the childbirth benefit. The authorization may be obtained online through gov.gr . If the mother is indirectly insured through the spouse, the mother must provide authorization that she consents to the spouse claiming the childbirth benefit.
In the case of a single-parent family, the responsibility of the digital birth registration lies to the mother of the child.
After the 10 days, a late registration fine is issued by the Tax Office you belong to, according to Law 4144/2013 Article 4(15) (replacing Article 49 of Law 344/1976).
