  3. Overnight stay is forbidden except for those who have proven religious or scientific interests in the area and are over 18 years old.

Diamonitiria (permit to reside) are issued by the offices of Mount Athos, at Ouranoupolis (on the right side of the port). In order to get their diamonitirio visitors must show their identity cards and pay the sum of €18 (Orthodox visitors) or €35 (non-Orthodox). Foreign visitors also need:
