Re: Anyone Working?

Thank you Warwick. I didn't know about the minimum requirement of qualifying years in the UK. I have only perhaps 7 or 8 years contributions in the UK and over 15 in Greece. I'm not quite clear now as to whether I should be making voluntary contributions in the UK to make it up to the minimum, regar...

Re: Applying for Greek Citizenship

This is copied from the Greek Embassy web site in the UK: Aliens of non Greek origin, spouses of Greek nationals, are not entitled to apply for naturalization, as described above, at a Greek Consular Authority.

Re: Applying for Greek Citizenship

I've done a bit of searching and found the law - 4531/2018 Article 31: https://www.lawspot.gr/nomika-nea/oi-nees-diataxeis-peri-ithageneias-nomos-4531-2018 The length of time of legal residence prior to applying is shown on a table at the bottom of that page. It seems to be 3 years for an EU citizen.

Re: Applying for Greek Citizenship

Many thanks indeed for this information. Does anybody know how fluent you need to be to pass the Greek language test? Jeff Jeff, I imagine you need to be pretty fluent, whatever that means though?! I would imagine a good first test is that you can read and understand/translate the Greek text above?...

Applying for Greek Citizenship

Greek Citizenship It does seem to be possible to apply for Greek citizenship again now. They had halted it for a period & were allowing only those of Greek bloodline to apply. The main requirements seems to be to a) hold a Permanent Residence Certificate if EU citizen (΄Εγγραφο Ποιστοποίησης Μόν...

Re: Why Brexit is Right

Well this thread has twisted and turned, went on track for a short time regarding our concerns living in Greece and then off track again. Time to close it as it’s drifting off once again into the old Leave vs Remain argument. This forum is here to discuss our concerns about Living in Greece after Br...

Re: Still in Limbo

In fact it emphasises the point I was trying to make on here. It is taxes that pay for free medical care, schools, roads, policing etc, and without them there would be no money to run the country. (We have seen what has happened in Greece re tax evasion over the years!). I was not pointing a finger...
