Re: Requirements for part-time residents in Crete

One question IDm. Are you visiting Greece as an EU citizen or a non-EU citizen? I live here permanently as first degree family member. btw found this by accident while looking for office operating hours https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/...

Re: Requirements for part-time residents in Crete

right to the new card is automatic so there should be little or no processing delay. sorry, just to clarify again: delay is not due to them assessing whether ones is entitled, but due to their processing time (I rather want to say - habits..), so the queue is such that one is stuck for months on en...

Re: Requirements for part-time residents in Crete

From your reply, IDm, I am guessing that you are not an EU national and have been applying for a Biometric Residency Card as a third country national? Almost like you said, except I got direct ties to Greece (and UK) so my application was based on that fact (versus property ownership residency, in ...

Re: Requirements for part-time residents in Crete

Hi Warwick, to clarify what I meant / you comment on: KEP do not issue EU Residence Certificates nor are they authorised to apply for you That is so; however, in my experience, local KEP is likely more informed/up-to-date than the local police station; in my case, they were nice enough to explain wh...

Re: Requirements for part-time residents in Crete

Hi, it's same as for so-called third country nationals. Since you have had residence permits *folded paper booklet by KEP? issued, if its longer than 5 years ago, you can apply through nearest town office. Local KEP should point you to the foreigner's office (may even call the appropriate person if ...

Re: E-paravolo - how to pay?

Warwick, it's my experience 1 month ago in Athens. I just followed instructions as told by competent people. The process I describe was relatively painless, compared to the usual. So if this process really works elsewhere etc, amazing. But I did not experiment with it =)

Re: E-paravolo - how to pay?

In my very recent experience, the most efficient (easiest & quickest) way to pay it, is to print the form, then with it in hand go to the national bank division (eleniki trapeza) and ask someone English-speaking for assistance. The reason is that they have ATM-looking machines that do the job (n...

Re: Barking / unattended dogs nuisance

yeah, 3rd cousin love is a biggie - the whole local community here is an extended family so things are done / seen the same way; and a rep. may not do much *unless there's a specific law for it, aside from the quiet hours rule..
thanks everyone for the feedback¬!

Re: Barking / unattended dogs nuisance

Last year we experienced an incident where we were kept awake all night by a dog yelping. My impression is that it is, unfortunately, very common practice for local owners to just bring the dog, tie it up (and often leave it like that - so my understanding is that they will visit periodically to fe...

and they never seem able to do anything, so at least they are consistent. haha, that's mostly my experience; you know it could be difference of gender/age, as it often seems so - you are a reputed age and male, therefore the perception of your needs is taken more directly (to describe it diplomatic...

Re: A New Case

In both cases I would describe it as "slightly brusque" but still "helpful" while past experience was "friendly" and "helpful". I would guess the office in Kalyves is more used to dealing with idiot Brits so they just roll their eyes and get on with it, Bob? ...

Re: A New Case

KEP for example is operating by appointment only, you can't just walk in. I found that in AB people were respecting social distancing at the checkout, where they had drawn lines on the floor, but not when wandering around the store. If you stop a couple of metres away from somebody and wait for the...
