Greece : Uniform Format with Visa for Macedonian (2006)

In 1995, the EU created a uniform format for an EU visa taking the form of a sticker to be affixed to the travel document of non-EU nationals under visa obligation.[1]

Council Regulation (EC) No 333/2002 of 18 February 2002 for a uniform format for forms for affixing the visa issued by Member States to persons holding travel documents not recognised by the Member State. [2]

Greece do not recognised the Republic of Macedonia until 2018, therefore a Macedonian cannot use his/her passport issued by the Republic of Macedonia to enter Greece.
