Re: How to become a greek resident

...Member states will be allowed to set their own criteria for eligibility for the new document, but I guess it's worth having as much documentation as possible to prove you have a right to remain after the Brexit implementation period (1/1/2021). Of course it depends if EU member countries bother ...

Re: How to become a greek resident

Or is it the same thing but i need one with my greek address on it? NO!!! You need the normal EHIC that you get from NHS as a UK resident visiting other EU countries. You are still living in the UK not in Greece. Nobody's going to make you stay for 3 months. You go to a police station with the docu...

Re: How to become a greek resident

...I suppose it might depend on an individual seller or dealership whether or not you are asked for a residence card when buying a car... I think it is probably a simple matter of whether they know how to get round the usual requirement of having a residence certificate. Some people know and some d...

Re: How to become a greek resident

...signatures on a declaration that we would never be in Crete for more than two consecutive months at any one time. This last condition seemed a bit strange to me, ... I think that the person who filled out the declaration for you put 2 months because if you are going to be here 3 months or more t...

Re: How to become a greek resident

If you think that is complicated you are not going to get on very well with Greek bureaucracy. I don't think you have to live in the house for 3 months before applying. Just tell them that you will be staying for over 3 months and you want to get the residence certificate now rather than wait becaus...

Re: Flight Delay Compensation

I think what made me claim was the attitude I experienced during those delays. The first delay was the Ryanair flight from Stansted to Chania. That one was approximately 4 hours late. It was caused because the first flight had a fault on the plane and turned back one hour into the flight. When it go...

Re: Tsipras smells the coffee

I don't suppose it could be an engineered excuse to pull down the al-Aqsa mosque that now stands on the site of the previous temples? I understand that psychopaths often claim that god told them to do it?

Re: Tsipras smells the coffee

Figure 3 in this ekathimerini article is terrifying. It is a projection, so it might no pan out like this, but the idea that the number of people in employment will drop from a peak of 4.5 million to 2.5 million in 60 years is unthinkable. I cannot imagine that any country anywhere in the world coul...

Re: Greek Driving Licence

According to an ekathimerini article the requirement to sit a new driving test every three years when you reach 74 and every two years when you reach 80 has now been implemented. It does apply to drivers who swapped an EU licence from a different country for a Greek one. At least we don't need to ta...

Re: Flight Delay Compensation

Final update. The €400 from EasyJet cleared in my Greek bank account yesterday. Altogether it took 14 weeks from submitting the claim to receiving the payment and 6 emails from me to them. Not exactly hassle free but worth the effort for the money. Typically the compensation paid by Ryanair and Easy...

Re: bigblu - formerly Europasat, formerly Tooway

I think most of the companies providing satellite broadband across Europe, like Tooway, are buying time wholesale on Eutelsat owned satellites and then selling that onto retail customers. It's rather like the smaller mobile operators like Tesco Mobile and Virgin buying access to the major operator's...

Re: Airbnb

I think this thread illustrates one reason why I wouldn't choose to get into the letting business. When you start you obviously do a business plan taking into account all the government regulations, including taxation, and all the terms of the letting agencies that prevail at that time.

Re: Electricity prices (yet again)

No. The fixed charges are for a 4 month period. As an example on my last bill I had used 667 kWh at daytime rate and 200 kWh at night-time rate. Thus the charge for electricity consumption was: Standing charge = €4.80 Day 667x0.0946 = €63.10 Standing charge = €2.00 Night 200x0.0661 = €13.22 Total ch...

Re: Electricity prices (yet again)

The following are all for a four month period: If you have a normal meter you pay a fixed charge of €1.52 for a single phase supply or €4.80 for a three phase supply. If you change to a dual meter, i.e. different day and night rates those standing charges are increased by €2.00. The charge for dayti...
