2023 Book Fair Exhibitor: Danae Konidaris

Danae Konidaris was born in Queensland and has always lived in Melbourne. She has a Bachelor of Arts Degree, majoring in Writing. Danae assisted her adult sons with the Greek citizenship registration process from their first appointment at the Consulate General of Greece in Melbourne to her sons receiving their Greek birth certificates and being registered in the Greek Municipal Roll as citizens of their father’s (her husband’s) πατρίδα (homeland).

Then came the process of her sons obtaining ongoing compulsory military service deferment once they became citizens of Greece. These first-hand experiences and the newly acquired knowledge about exercising one’s right to Greek citizenship by descent inspired Danae to conduct further research and then write two books.

The motivation behind writing the books was to inform, encourage and support others who also wish to exercise their birthright and become Greek dual citizens. The publication of the paperback and ebook 'Guide to Your Greek Citizenship by Descent' and the sequel ebook 'Guide to Deferring Your Greek Army Service Indefinitely' followed.

As an ancillary support to the books to assist with the wide variety of unusual circumstances that may surround a Greek citizenship application, Danae went on to create the Facebook group Go Next-Level Greek Group, of which she is Admin. The group is a worldwide help hub for people who wish to become dual citizens of Greece by descent.

Members share questions, information and experiences about their Greek citizenship application/registration process and goals.
