I'm an Indian passport holder resident in Ireland. My Irish residency expires in 2023.
I booked a trip to Greece without fully checking the passport requirements.
The intended date of departure from Greece is the 25th of October, 2021, however my passport expires on the 12th of January, 2022.
Which means it violates the minimum requirement of the 3 month passport validity rule.
I'm hoping that since it's only 2 weeks short of the 3 month span, I will be granted the visa.
Are the embassies known to be lenient on the passport requirement based on the fact that I have a USA B1/B2 visa that expires in 2029 and I've visited Greece twice in the past?
