Re: Official translation - English to Greek

That's correct. If you go past the payment deadline you cannot pay at a bank or PO. It isn't exactly a small fine - you pay double the licence fee if you pay late.

Re: Dog on Ferries

The dog is NOT allowed to STAY in the car and must be kept on a leash and wear a muzzle. Some ferries have a limited number of cabins where dogs can stay with their owners. Some have kennels on the top deck where they can be left. Also, I am pretty sure the dog can stay with the owner on the deck ar...

Re: IKA Renewal Heads Up

...This Ypevthini Dilosi / legal declaration form (blank) can be dowloaded to print from this page http://www.livingincrete.net/resources.html (link at the bottom of the page)... Is that a new version of the form, Carol? The version I have has fax number and email address as the bottom line of the ...

Re: IKA Renewal Heads Up

...We were advised that each UK holder of an IKA book will have to attend the IKA office in person and sign the form at the desk... This is a standard form used to make legal declarations in a variety of circumstances. For example I had to sign one when my late wife and I got our first residence pe...

Re: IKA Book Renewal 2018

I've always just turned up, either in the few days between Christmas and New Year or early in January. Never had a problem. If there are big queues I tend to use KEP. If the queue looks reasonable I just wait at IKA. I think more people are doing things online so not as many are waiting at IKA. Warw...

Re: Residence permits.

It doesn't matter a damn what UK MPs know or care about the situation of UK ex-pats living elsewhere in the EU. If they are 200 IQ geniuses, know every single EU Treaty, Directive and Regulation verbatim and have never read a newspaper in their lives it is still impossible to predict how the EU will...

Re: Residence permits.

How can a UK diplomat predict what action the EU will take in the event of a no deal scenario? Only the EU know that.

Re: Healthcare

I have a feeling that KEP wanted the paper that the tax office give you when they issue your AFM. I seem to recall that they wouldn't accept me just telling them what the AFM was. After 8 years my memory may be misleading me.

Re: Healthcare

To back up Andrew's statement I had a quick look at the paper KEP gave me in 2009 when they issued my AMKA number. On it is the usual name, father's name, mother's name, date of birth, address, telephone number, AFM, passport number and country of origin. Nowhere on it is any mention of my IKA numbe...

Re: Residence permits.

I thought the reply to the question on UK/EU driving licences might be of interest to many ex-pats?

Re: Insurance for a British reg van in Crete?

That makes sense, Jean. I wondered if the law here changed due to a new EU Regulation but I wasn't sure. Even back in 1997 I had a slight problem. My UK insurance only covered me for 1 month but getting Greek insurance back then was easy. I even used a letter from the UK company to get no-claims dis...

If it's in the same shop as before then it's at 35° 31' 18.31" N 23° 51' 0.14" E on Google Earth.

Re: Official translation - English to Greek

...There's an extra incentive these days. The part of our local tax office, 30 mins away down the coast, that accepted payments has closed and now a late payment would mean a 90-minute haul up the mountains to Tripoli, and the road there has already been closed a few times due to snow... I don't un...

Re: Insurance for a British reg van in Crete?

I have no idea if the two threads are linked, Nigel. I can't view the Facebook group because I am not a Facebook member and have no intention to be one. I doubt if my advice is very helpful in this case. As far as I can see if you are in Crete with a UK registered vehicle and no insurance then you a...

Re: Sending a package to the UK

It would be worth asking Greengibble to see if he will do it cheaper than Nomad. Also if he is going anywhere near where you want it dropped he might include that at low cost. He is only a few km from Vamos in Litsarda so it is no less convenient to drop it off at his shop. White Van Man could have ...
