Re: Latest EHIC & Reciprocal Healthcare

So you can’t just voluntary contribute? Doesn’t seem right and someone should ask the question to an accountant. I'm pretty sure the answer is no. A friend (part time/ temporary worker/ working age) who wanted to ' top up' their IKA/EFKA to reach the threshold for (yearly) health insurance was told...

Still passing it off as a new leak. Must think we are daft.


YEah. It's about time the pro- Brexit ministers & civil servants started leaking all the good news about Brexit.

Re: I smelled a rat, and I found a rat

With respect Carol you have jumped in and not quite grasped what the original debate was specifically about. I have always been a bit mad. Good deflection scooby. My apologies - I jumped in with comments earlier in the thread about workers in Crete which were ' off topic' , purely because this is b...

Re: I smelled a rat, and I found a rat

With respect I think people are digressing from my point. Of course if you are of the belief that UK citizens will no longer be able to LIVE in the EU no matter what the outcome of Brexit then that is your belief however wrong it is. It’s also got nothing to do with freedom of movement. I don’t dis...

Re: I smelled a rat, and I found a rat

Err you are gonna have to explain that scooby ... OK Jeff, let’s say the UK leaves without a deal, do you think an EU country will stop UK citizens living there? It will no longer be a right for those who want to move to an EU country. It will be an application process subject to any number of crit...

Re: I smelled a rat, and I found a rat

I didn’t comment on ‘the workers’ Carolina, as I saw that as a ‘given.’ We all know the problems involved there. I am also aware that not everyone living on Crete got a vote in the referendum. - Warwick, (amongst others), stated how he he did not have a vote.....which is why I used the word ‘many.’...

Re: I smelled a rat, and I found a rat

And what does this have to do with living in Crete, Carolina can we turn this thread into the new WILL OF THE PEOPLE thread please RSVP. Agreed that the OP is not about Living in Crete, Kamisiana. I have added a Crete-related comment though :) Looking at amalgamating all these general BR comments t...

Re: I smelled a rat, and I found a rat

Of course Brexit affects people living in Crete. Most have families still in the U.K. Most have an income, (in the form of a pension), that is based in the U.K. and therefore subject to currency fluctuation.......and the worrying devaluation of the £ against the €. Many had a vote in the referendum...

Re: Exchanging residence certificates for biometric residence cards

There really isn’t enough info at this time Rick. The Brexit Gr govt website also does not list all scenarios, it talks of only permanent residence permits (after 5 years residence, with proof). Law 4604/2019 (referenced on the GR Brexit site) goes deeper and there is more of a synopsis here of the ...

Civil Protection launches 112 number

Greeks were surprised on Saturday noon to receive warning messages by the Greek Civil Protection. After years of delay, the European Emergency number <112> was finally set in operation even though not in full but as as intermediate solution, so far. The message came per SMS and was in Greek. It was ...
