The Youth Pass it takes the form of a digital debit card which beneficiaries will be able to use in businesses active in the fields of culture, tourism and transport. These are defined by the Joint Ministerial Decision signed by the Minister of National Economy and Finance Kostis Hatzidakis, the Minister of the Interior Niki Kerameos, Minister of Digital Governance Dimitris Papastergiou and Deputy Minister of National Economy and Finance Thanos Petralias.
It is reminded that beneficiaries of the Youth Pass are:

So for this year’s aid, young people who have turned 18 or 19 can apply from 1.1.2022 to 31.12.2022.
It is emphasized that there are no property or income criteria.

Therefore, an 18-year-old who applies for the Youth Pass this year will receive €150 this year and an additional €150 in 2024 without having to apply again. However, if for any reason, a young person does not apply when they are 18, they can do so when they turn 19, of course receiving the aid only for the second year and not retrospectively.
Young people will be able to submit their applications either through the digital platform vouchers.gov.gr or through K.E.P. from Friday 9 November to Tuesday 5 December, while the aid will have been paid by Sunday 10 December 2023.

When will beneficiaries be paid?
After submitting the application, the credit institution or financial organization informs the beneficiary about the first activation of the card and the crediting of the amount of money via text message (sms) or e-mail with an embedded link to activate the digital debit card.
Beneficiaries can then use the support they will receive to make purchases or receive services from businesses active in the fields of tourism (e.g. in tourist accommodation), culture (e.g. to attend theater performances or concerts, for the purchase of books, etc.) and transportation (taxi, buses, trains, ferry – plane tickets or for the rental of cars or pleasure boats, etc.).
