    Some countries are a little weird about passport expiry dates when you try and enter them but I think yours will be fine because Greece is an EU country, as long as it doesn't expire while you are there.

    You will need a new one. It must be valid for 6 months after your return date. It's just the rules to make sure you don't change plans or have a serious illness then get stuck out there.

    Generally the 6 month validity is a guideline rather than a hard and fast rule, there are however certain countries that make it a requirement, often those you require visas for. The best way to check is the forgein and commenwealth office info for travellers.

    You're going to need to get a new passport soon anyway, so better safe than sorry!
