Greek–South African relations are the relations between Greece and South Africa. The presence of a large Greek Diaspora in South Africa led to the establishment of diplomatic relations as far back as the early 20th century. Relations are cordial, and got stronger since World War II, during which both countries were allies. Greece has an embassy in Pretoria, a general consulate in Johannesburg and 2 consulates in Cape Town and Durban. South Africa has an embassy in Athens and an honorary consulate in Thessaloniki.
