The Greek Consular mission is to build on the longstanding cooperation between Greece and the United States and further enhance the bonds of friendship between our two peoples. This goes hand-in-hand with the mission of the Hellenic Cultural Society of South Florida: working together to raise awareness about Hellenism, to advance Greek culture, to explore its relevance in the contemporary world, and to enrich South Florida’s cultural landscape.

Consul General Tsokos noted he was interested in sharing the example of the Hellenic Cultural Society of South Florida with other Greek Consulate offices across the country. The Hellenic Cultural Society encourages sharing Hellenism within our communities by hosting Greek film events, book clubs, musical events, guest speakers, and travel lectures. The Consulate General’s office is available to assist with a wide variety of services including travel updates, Greek document and passport information, Greek citizenship, provide assistance registering vital information and tax issues.
