Re: Water Shortage

Personally, I'd relish the opportunity to use a bit less water - we haven't had any in our village since Saturday afternoon! What's that strange smell? Oh, it's me ....

Re: How to become a greek resident

Yes. From memory I required my passport, house deeds, EHIC, bank book, AFM number, 3 passport photos and a modicum of patience. Be warned though that different police stations may interpret the rules differently. I also took my birth certificate, tax return, a utility bill and my latest P60 although...

Re: How to become a greek resident

Agreed. Sight of my Eurobank account book was sufficient to satisfy them I had means. I think it's been highlighted before that it's neither here nor there to the Greek authorities whether you can support yourself or not. You're not entitled to benefits and, if you can't support yourself, you'll jus...

Re: How to become a greek resident

A bit scary, to be sure. However, whatever criteria is required for the new residency document is likely to be made reciprocal by the uk government, so it's unlikely to be horribly stringent - I'm sure the Greek government doesn't want hundreds of disgruntled fish and chip shop owners swarming back ...

Re: How to become a greek resident

chrissyg, the way I read the current situation (and I'm not saying I'm correct) you should definitely get a temporary resident's permit whether you feel you need one or not. Once we leave the EU they will become invalid for British citizens, but may well be one of the qualifying criteria for applyin...

Hi TweetTweet

Definitely raki not reiki! Just a common or garden filling required I think, but thanks for your home-brew infection recipe - I'll keep a copy of that just in case ....

Help! Got the toothache!

Hi

I'd be grateful if anyone could point me in the direction of a dentist in Sitia, please. Preferably one who speaks some English.

Many thanks in advance.
