Re: Booster COVID Vaccination

Thanks for the tip about the Covid free GR app, it is really easy to use and hopefully the screen image will scan better than my crumpled piece of paper. Instructions are: (it’s in greek but I think anyone can follow these tips). Download the app to your phone, give the app access to the camera. Whe...

Re: If you are fully vaccianted in Greece...

My local KEP sent me the electronic version of my covid cert which definitely has two pages Warwick. I got it about mid August. I’m wondering if it’s the Hellenic version now but it clearly says EU Digital Certificate at the top and has the QR Code plus all the other information you mentioned that i...

Re: If you are fully vaccianted in Greece...

Just checked my EU Digital Covid Certificate (the blue and yellow one) and it does have DOB on page one and also dates of both vaccines on page two. Due to problems accessing the vaccine (AMKA not recognised) I wasn’t fully vaccinated until later…did they perhaps change the certificate? On my recent...

Re: Day 2 test in the UK.

FYI. If your paid for day two test doesn’t arrive (and there are lots of reports of this happening), ring 119, explain and the NHS will send you out a free test. Also if you are visiting elderly relatives and want to keep up some regular testing, free rapid test packs are available at any UK chemist...

Returned on Saturday from a two week stay in the UK. Flew Ryanair, Chania to East Midlands. I used Dante labs for my day two test, £48. Ordered on Friday and delivered to my UK relatives address two days later. I got the confirmation email and code required for the UK PLF immediately. Instructions o...

Re: Container.

As I understand it, it is illegal to move containers on the island, although of course not illegal to own one.

I assume an attempt to keep the environment free of eyesores.

Post Brexit the fee and documents required has changed, your local KEP or MOT can process this for you. (You now have to provid...

Re: Brexit - British Citizen with US spouse

I agree with Warwick, take hard copy photos and make sure you get these done professionally as they know the right size and rules about no hair on face etc. Once you get the photos be careful not to touch them as fingerprints on the surface will mean they can’t be scanned in properly and they will r...

Re: Brexit - British Citizen with US spouse

I suggest you contact the Aire set up to advise UK citizens and their families with residency issues/advice.

https://www.airecentre.org/eurobrits-greece

They will answer phone enquiries and follow up with email advice for more complex matters.

Good luck.

The feedback we got was that our old kitchen went to an elderly Greek couple who previously only had an outdoor kitchen. Volunteers fitte...
