Re: Planning permission for window replacement?

If I were you I would inquire at my local Dimos office.

I think we are all suffering from cabin fever, Margarita.

Re: Biometric permits

Did anybody else spot this article in yesterday's Ekathimerini which, for me, contained a very interesting second paragraph? https://www.ekathimerini.com/259995/article/ekathimerini/news/uk-nationals-residing-legally-in-greece-will-retain-right-to-stay-after-brexit This is the first time I have read...

Re: Do they speak proper Greek?

A friend introduced her daughter to the neighbours and couldn't understand why they sniggered. It was only later that she realised that she'd said: this is my cucumber.

Re: Transporting goods Uk to Crete and Crete to Uk

Rich, it would be useful to know where in the UK you are based and able to pick up from and equally, where in Crete you could deliver to.

Re: Requirements for part-time residents in Crete

I hate to rain on your parade, Joan, but I really don't see how you can "apply for biometric permits even if we are not actually resident or tax-resident..." Have you seen the other thread on this topic, in the Brexit and Living in Greece section, under "How will the Schengen 90 days ...

Re: How will the Schengen 90 days within 180 rule affect us?

I think Tim's understanding is correct on all points. We are in the same situation as tsambi -- part-timers or in-betweeners for want of a better description -- who spend a proportion of the year at our home in Crete but remain tax resident in the UK. We have the beige residence permits, but I have ...

Re: Urgent PLF query

Voni, you definitely need a PLF form for each passenger when returning to the UK. I think it is a government requirement rather than being at the discretion of any particular airline. And immigration staff at Gatwick are out in force in the baggage reclaim area, checking that you have the QR codes o...

Can we stick to what's happening in Crete and ignore the dezinfomatsiya put out by the trolls from Olgino?

Re: ENFIA 2020

Has anybody out there with a Eurobank account managed to pay this year's ENFIA online using e-banking? It was a quick and painless transaction last year but for some reason the system is playing up with me this time and I'm wondering if anyone else has had a problem. I get through the first five sta...

Re: Islands removed from list - but not Crete

I think there's more politics than science behind this move to keep Crete on the red list. Half term is coming up in the UK and Crete would be a popular destination for a last-bit-of-summer break. From Greece's point of view, do they really want plane loads of tourists arriving from a country where ...

Sputnik -- you might have found it since you posted last week, but if not, in the Eurobank online payment section look for code ΤΑΥΤΟΤΗΤΑ ΟΦΕΙΛΗΣ.

Re: ENFIA 2020

According to "Keep Talking Greece," ENFIA bills will not now be posted until 20th September, because the government has decided to exempt 26 smaller Greek islands from paying any property tax this year, so the rates are having to be recalculated -- upwards, presumably, to compensate for th...
