Re: Looking to buy a holiday home..

It will be possible to track stays in the EU from 2021when the new ETIAS system is implemented. The system will operate in a similar way to the USA system, and passports will be scanned at all Schengen boarders (including Greece).

Re: Looking to buy a holiday home..

Without a residence permit, you can only spend a max of 3 months in any 6 month period. Attached calculator may help.

This rule may be more vigorously enforced for UK citizen's post bexit ??

Re: That's all right then

With greater relevance to holiday home owners and part time residents, EU proposals to introduce ETIAS (an electronic travel authorisation system) will restrict travel within the Shengen zone (which includes Greece) to 90 days within any 180 day period after BREXIT.

Re: That's all right then

With reference to buying a car without a residence permit, my understanding is that you can sign a declaration that you will not be in Crete for more than 90 days at any one time - so typically, you could use the car for 6 months of the year.

Visa Free Travel

The U.K. has proposed visa-free travel for EU citizens entering the country post-Brexit, allowing visa free travel for up to 6 months, but would impose restrictions on gaining employment and benefits. It would be up to the EU to decide whether the offer of visa-free travel - if it is formally propos...

Re: Airport Delays

Greece has elected not to implement the 'entry/exit systems' until October 7th. At this point all Shengen Countries must follow the EU directive.

A very hot topic being currently highlighted by the UK media, is a crisis surrounding care for the elderly. Anyone with assets exceeding £23,250 is required to fund their own care - with an average cost of £1,000 + per week for a stay in a nursing home, and the quality of care questionable. Nadra Ah...

Re: Visa Waiver System

The EU press release database provides further comprehensive information, and indicates that the system is likely to be operational by 2020. I don't think travelers concerns will relate to the cost of the ETIAS visa wavier, but more about the maximum time you can spend in the Shengen zone. As previo...

Re: Visa Waiver System

Proposals for a European pre-clearance system will be presented this week. Lets hope that if they approve any such system, a "90 day in any 180 day" time limit doesn't apply to countries outside the Shengen zone - which includes the UK. In previous discussions there was an assumption that ...
