After the birth, parents are requested in 2-3 working days to visit the Birth Registration Department on the 1st Floor of the Clinic to declare the birth of their child.
Please note that, if the above declaration is not made within ten (10) days from the birth, an administrative fine of one hundred (100) Euros shall be imposed (art. 49 par. 1 of L. 4144/2013).
The citizen (parent/ whoever is exercising the parental care) submits to the employee of

of the two parents. By Greek law, these are:

or the individual health booklet (article 25 of law 3731/2008- Government Gazette
