Preparation for Day of Travel

Students should be sure to:

  • Bring you passport, two photocopies of your passport’s picture page, and documentation of your student visa (if applicable)
  • Bring a copy of your travel itinerary, including the return flight
  • Record the serial numbers of important items that you are bringing with you (phone, camera, laptop, tablet, etc.). This will be useful in case any items are lost or stolen. We recommend leaving a copy of these numbers with family members.
  • Call bank and credit card companies to notify them that accounts will be accessed from a different country during the time spent abroad.  We recommend making a photocopy of all credit and ATM cards to leave with family members in case these cards are lost or stolen.

From September to mid-October, the weather is pleasant and dry and people still visit the beach. Toward the end of October, it begins to get cold and at times rainy. By December, there is a small chance of snow. N.U.in students should dress warmly from October through December.

Adapters

An adapter is a device that allows American devices to plug into Greek outlets. You can purchase these at any electronics store. Consider purchasing a universal adapter for use outside Greece if you plan to travel.

Voltage Converters

The electricity supply in Greece is 220-240 volts alternating at a frequency of 50 Hertz. Check whether the electrical goods you plan to bring will work at this voltage. Some devices, such as hair straighteners and blow dryers, may require a converter.
