Diplomatic relations between Greece and Mexico were established in Washington, DC on 17 May 1938. Between 1955-1964 diplomatic relations were carried out between Mexico's embassy in Rome, Italy and Greece's embassy in Washington, DC, United States; and through their respective honorary consulates.

In August 1986, the visit was reciprocated by Greek Prime Minister Andreas Papandreou.[1]
