Re: Driving Licences

So any guesses as to what will happen if you can't swap your licence until well after Brexit because of the 185 day rule (and a daft date on resident certificate)? Will it be illegal to drive in Greece or will there be 6 months grace?

Re: International driving permits for UK drivers from 28 March 2019

You can't. You've got to go back to Brexit land and queue at a post office but not any, just main ones.

Re: EHIC for Pensioners

Just a thought. Is the UK the only country in the EU which automatically gives free healthcare to residents regardless of whether they've contributed or how long they've lived in the UK? I get the impression they think the same applies in other countries!!! It seems very wrong to not be covered for ...

Re: A serious Question

IF reciprocal healthcare/EHICS are withdrawn, this is a huge problem. For full health insurance even in a public hospital, the costs are astronomical! You can say goodbye to a couple of thousand euros a year for 2 people over 60. If anyone has found a much cheaper option then please let us know but ...

Re: UK gov't updates

Re: UK mobile providers

I've had a Virgin Sim since May. If I'm out of Crete for 2 months or more within 4 months then I should be hammered, however no probs. yet touch wood. I don't use the data allowance on it, just UK calls and texts. I never get near my monthly limit. I don't access my Virgin account on it either as yo...

Re: The Will of the People

Ha ha Guy! Obviously there are bigger priorities but I know many Brits here who have several rescue animals and IF they have to return to the UK, I'm sure they would want to take their pets back with them. So to some people here, it could be a big problem. This is a forum about Living in Crete after...

Re: The Will of the People

I wonder what the rules will be if you want to take your Greek adopted pets back to the UK?

Re: Predictions for 2019 include a Hard Brexit

I'm sure most tourist companies in the EU will be fine recuiting from within the EU but how British based organisations cope is another matter. The thing is that thousands of Brits won't be on the recruitment list anymore as 90 day visas won't be good enough and they wont be paying tax in the UK! Ju...

Re: Predictions for 2019 include a Hard Brexit

For anyone who thinks a hard deal Brexit is scaremongering. Note the impact on GDP, taxes collected and cost of holidays to Europe.

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? What happens if you try to return to the UK after 5 years (whenever that is)? During the Implementation Period, as a UK national you will be able to visit, live and work in the...
