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...

Re: Level 1 for Chania. Level 3 Herakleion New guidelines

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: Residency

Last time we used the Ancona-Patras ferry, all the dogs were confined to the top deck for exercising and there was something like a giant cat litter tray for their defecations. Unfortunately some kids thought it was a sandpit for playing in .... :shock:

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...

Re: Flying Crete - UK

Chrissyg, I think the comment posted by ros21m is outrageous and unforgiveable. I have been reading this thread with interest and it was perfectly civilised until this person added her?/his? pennyworth. I note that the time of the posting might provide a clue to the intemperate language. I also note...

Re: Vehicle Testing

I confirm what altohb says, Tim, as I had to do the IKTEO and emissions test together last year. Definitely get Iannis to call and book Patronakis. They were quite busy last year and that was pre-Covid, so you don't want a wasted journey.

Re: Passenger Locator Form

We faced a similar conundrum when we first came to Crete, Bluebird. Our house had three different numbers stencilled in various places on the wall by the front door. Nobody could tell us the correct one. We decided to chip off the old render anyway, to restore the stonework, so we were left with no ...

Re: Direct flights from the UK to Greece from 15th July confirmed.

Welcome ? Really ? Judging by the tone of recent posts on here I thought most of you guys don't want your fellow Brits flying in !
