Re: Driving Licences

Mine was re-issued last week with last week's date, although I've had one for ten years. Hmm. I'll report back. You might seriously consider going back to the police station to sort that out. The date of issue should be that of the first one. Hopefully they have retained that, or at least have a re...

Re: Greek Driving Licence

For what it's worth, both of us here have renewed passports and UK driving licences using home-taken photos printed on an inkjet printer, ditto with this Greek licence application. Nobody has objected so far.

Re: Greek Driving Licence

60mm high by 40mm wide. The head (top of head to chin) should occupy 31-35mm within the total. The usual passport photo rules apply regarding background, glasses etc.

Re: Block on renewal of IKA books due to BREXIT

I believe Kilkis is right. IKA coverage can lapse for a Greek, so mere possession of an Amka number is not the end of it. Some medical practitioners, and others, might think that the Amka number is the be-all, but I'm sure we're all used to officials here putting their own interpretation on things. ...

Ah, the site is here:

Just input the three required numbers.

Also, I'm an idiot. He did retain the IKA books; I thought MrsB had them :?

Re: A serious Question

We've been 'tidying up' furiously for a couple of years now. - Hassling endlessly to get the house legalisation finished - Getting the blue residence permit - Making a start on the cadastral survey business - Getting Greek driving licences (just submitted the final paperwork today) and probably othe...

Re: Block on renewal of IKA books due to BREXIT

The last time I renewed through a KEP office was 3 or 4 years ago. The lady tried to renew it online, as she would for a Greek citizen, but said that she couldn't do it for foreigners that have an IKA book via an S1 form. She said those had to be sent to IKA. She did everything for me, and some fri...

Re: Block on renewal of IKA books due to BREXIT

For the first time in 10 years our IKA book was renewed on the spot in the KEP office yesterday. Previously the very unhelpful person in there insisted on sending it to the main IKA office, where I imagine it sat in the 'pending' pile until we complained enough. But that person has been replaced by ...

Re: Greek Driving Licence

Our local KEP handled this very smoothly this morning. The one catch was that we hadn't checked on the correct size for the photos and our spares from a UK passport application were too small. Easily solved.

They also confirmed that we can pay the fee online.

Re: Property Register declaration

The system has just reached us, here in South Kynouria in Arkadia. A friend went to do their stuff at the local office, which has opened in the last few days. Took 4 hours. If there are 5,000 properties that need to be registered (probably a *huge* underestimate), and assuming 2 hrs per application,...

Re: Road Tax

We are very lucky here in Elounda to have Tech Hub, a small technology shop where we can pay bills such as road tax. We no longer have to queue for hours at the bank or post office - at least until everyone finds out that this service is available! I paid ours from this very laptop. Why is it neces...

Re: Greek Driving Licence

My wife is keen for us to switch to Greek licences but, if I've read correctly here and elsewhere, handing over your UK licence during the process is mandatory? While I don't believe we'll lose the right to reside in Greece, our continued (pensioners) IKA entitlement doesn't look quite so secure. Wi...
