Re: The Will of the People

I'm really not clear about the last line. Does this mean 5 years from 1/1/2020 or from when you got your resident's permit?

Re: The Will of the People

Yes I was told by passport control man at Chania that things would be more complicated and there would be more controls in the future. He had a very grim expression. That was flying from Chania to Paphos. We were just about the only nonGreek/Cypriots on the flight.

Re: Update from HMG

Yes I was a bit surprised. The town hall has pretty limited space so I guess it's a way of controlling numbers and security. The ticket is barcoded.

Re: Update from HMG

If you want to go to Vrysses meeting, you need to register with eventbrite and get a ticket! I was sent an email about this. Not sure how else this info will be passed on.

Re: Predictions for 2019 include a Hard Brexit

I think he's a chicken! All very well being a loud mouth, critical person etc.. but being a PM and actually having to plan, do deals with everyone, try to represent the country whatever, is maybe a job too far for him and he knows if he was put in that position it would be beyond him????

Re: Chimney sweep

Do you have the vacuum as well? I think some of the chimneys George tackles are not that straightforward eg years of being blocked by bird's nests and goodness knows what. Would you be happy climbing about on rooves and unblocking from the top down? Maybe a new career but nothing is easy here :)

Re: Update from HMG

I think it's a Friday afternoon document! I know about the 29th meeting as it's been advertised by Apokoronas Our Home but not sure it's a definite yet?

Re: Update from HMG

Thanks for that Tim. Obviously HMG are a bit ignorant about how things work in Greece eg automatic right to a Greek EHIC card if you move to Greece.

Re: Still in Limbo

"it will help by safeguarding reciprocal healthcare if there is no EU deal."
From first link
So it appears if there is no deal, there has to be a separate deal about this deal???? And if the EU agree to to the new deal of course...... Great!
