Re: Biometric permits

[quote="Kilkis" Fortunately for them the police officer dealing with them was very helpful. He printed off e-paravolo for them, sent them off to the nearest bank to pay them and said they could come straight back to complete the process. Warwick[/quote] Interesting. I tried to pay ours at ...

Re: Latest lockdown rules - clarification?

I thought I read something in yesterday's eKathimerini to the effect that another week of lockdown has been proposed. Bob.

Re: Health Book Renewal

Thank you Warwick. I followed your advice, tried over the weekend but no appointments available, tried this morning at 0805 and another day had been opened up. By that time 2/3 of those available had been booked. So if you want an appointment don't have a lie in, bring the wife a cup of tea in bed ...

Re: Roll out of the vaccine in greece

Due for my second jab on Friday at Vamos Health Centre. Most of them there have a reasonably good knowledge of English which I suppose reflects on the high concentration of expats (not all English) in Apokoronas.

Re: COVID Vaccination Certificate

Given that this thread is about vaccination certificates, can I just say that the thought of ploughing through a Greek website fills me with dread so I look forward to hearing that KEP will be able to sort it all out, should I need one. Bob :mrgreen:

Good. Glad it's all sorted. Bob.

Anna has got hers, but again through the pharmacy in Almyrida. Katerina in Kalyves should be able to do it for you in no time! Bob

Re: Roll out of the vaccine in greece

Warwick. You mentioned receiving appointments by text. Do you know of anyone in the 75-79 age group who has received their vaccination appointment by e-mail? "Im indoors is in that group and registered to receive communications by e-mail but has not yet received on with his appointment. Having...

Re: Biometric permits

I was also not certain but I am now pretty sure, but not quite 100 %, that it is the date you need to pay it by. It reads "Καταληκτική Ημ/νια Πληρωμης" which translates as "Final Payment Date". Once it is paid it is paid. Warwick That is my understanding too Warwick. Each of our...

Re: Biometric permits

Just a cautionary note. After queueing fruitlessly outside Alpha bank in Chania for 45 minutes during which time I didn't move up the queue at all, I decided to pay my paravalo at the Pan Kriti Bank in Kalyves. Er, no. For the last 12 months according to the teller, unless you have an account with t...

Re: Postal deliveries to Kokkino Horio

Latest information re ELTA and postal deliveries for some of Apokoronas: Kostas made his last (unpaid) delivery on Monday/Tuesday this week as forecast by Vrysses. He will hear round about 22nd of this month if he is going to be restated or not. If so, it won't be before the beginning of March. If n...

Re: Roll out of the vaccine in greece

You are of course absolutely right Warwick. I had forgotten about the Taxisnet business where people with e-prescriptions are automatically catered for in the case of the vaccine. Not being brave enough to tackle the Greek website I just used our local pharmacy when my age-group turned and I got the...
