The lost/ stolen Identity Card and Passport System is an auxiliary
Databank containing declarations (submitted either directly to Tiresias
or by the Ministry of Public Order) of lost or stolen ID cards and
passports. The purpose of this database is to keep the wider banking
sector informed in order to protect transactions and clients involved
from potential damages resulting from loss or theft.
Lost or stoles ID cards and passports declared either to Tiresias
or sent by the Ministry of Public Order.
Applications (in greek) submitted to Tiresias by any interested
party. A copy of the declaration of the loss/ theft to the Police
or a solemn declaration (Art. 8 L. 1599/1986) certified by a public
Authority is also required.
Furthermore, the application can be submitted at any bank which
in turn forwards it to Tiresias by fax or post. The Database is
also updated periodically with data from the Ministry of Citizen
Protection (DPA decision 11/2006)
The data is stored without time limitation, unless the declaration
of loss/theft has been revoked.
