Diplomatic relations between the Philippines and Greece were established in 1950, but an agreement on the establishment of resident missions in Manila and Athens was reached only in 1987 between then Secretary of Foreign Affairs Raul S. Manglapus and then Greek Minister of Foreign Affairs Karolos Papoulias.

In 1988, the Philippine established a resident embassy in Athens and in 1992 a non-resident Greek mission to the Philippines based in Jakarta was established. In 2006, the Greek government established its resident embassy in Manila.
