Re: Driving Licences

The reports in the media were that it is only a practical test. I would guess the language used will depend on the tester. If the tester speaks English I can't imagine them refusing to give instructions in English but if you get one that doesn't then the instructions will be in Greek. I don't know i...

Re: Annual property tax 2019 (Chania) (zones?)

Exactly as expected, Forsta. A good example. If your accountant sends you the full ENFIA statement and you look at the yellow band across the middle of the page you will find that on your bill in column 13 it will have the figure 50,00000, i.e. 50 % of the house, and in column 17 it will have 100,00...

Re: International driving permits for UK drivers from 28 March 2019

I don't think it contradicts itself, Voni, but it is a bit ambiguous. 1 If you have a modern photocard driving licence, someone can apply on your behalf. 2 If you have the old paper licence then you must apply in person. No contradiction, simply two different rules for two different situations. It m...

Re: Annual property tax 2019 (Chania) (zones?)

Does he give you the documents showing the full calculation or just the one showing the amount owed? It is true that you should both get a bill but if you look at the ones showing the full calculation you will see on the yellow coloured row two figures in column 13 and 17 under the label ΠOΣOΣTO ΣYN...

Re: Driving Licences

My permanent residence certificate shows the date it was issued and does not show any other date. I am pretty sure that my previous one, which was the earlier style 5 year residence permit, showed both the date it was issued and the date I first entered Greece. I don't think going back to the police...

Re: Driving Licences

If you do need a translation, below I have suggested some changes, highlighted in red, based on the descriptions on the back of my Greek licence. I couldn't check everything. Mine doesn't have descriptions for 7, 8 and 9 nor for the different categories. Warwick 1. Επώνυμο: (Surname) 2. Όνομα : (Fir...

Re: Applying for Greek Citizenship

As an afterthought, I am not sure applying for Greek citizenship at this stage helps with the Brexit problem. 1 If the UK leaves with a "deal"* then all of us with residence certificates, either initial or permanent, should be able to remain in Greece. We may have to go through some admini...

Re: Applying for Greek Citizenship

It is simply to apply for Greek citizenship. Once you have Greek citizenship it is up to you and the government where you originally had citizenship whether you also keep your original citizenship, i.e. have dual citizenship, or revoke it and only have Greek citizenship. As far as I am aware Greece ...

Re: Driving Licences

I've got a translation of the old green paper licence as a Word document if that is any good, Martin. It was issued in 1976 so it is a pretty ancient format. For example it has no category A1 on it. It does have a translation of the categories but you would have to check that they matched the catego...

Re: International driving permits for UK drivers from 28 March 2019

I'm not sure I understand your post, Mountain Man? In the first sentence you say that the post office said they wouldn't do it until 2 March. In the second sentence you imply that you have already done it on 4 February? Does not compute. According to the Office of National Statistics there were 72.8...

Re: Annual property tax 2019 (Chania) (zones?)

I think evansmr1 is wrong. The online calculator calculates the total ENFIA owed on the property. If each half of a couple owns 50 % of the property each pays 50 % of that tax. Having said that €470 sounds a little low. I live in 112 sqm single storey house on a 506 sqm plot inside a village about 1...

You can get an estimate of the property tax that you would be charged by filling in details in this web site . Fill in the details of the building first and get an estimate. Click on the blue cross at the bottom of the table and enter the details of the land. Remember to subtract the area of the bui...

Re: Greek Driving Licence

I think some shops producing passport photos commercially use a dye-sublimation photo printer, which is effectively not pixelated despite being fed a pixelated image from a digital camera? I think it is the same technology used in photo-booth equipment. I could be wrong.

Re: International driving permits for UK drivers from 28 March 2019

I think you would need to ask an insurance company that question and I would imagine that it could depend on circumstances. For example, in the case of a UK resident, driving through the EU on holiday in a UK registered car, insured through a UK insurance company, using a UK issued driving licence w...

Re: Greek Driving Licence

...Do you know what size they should be ? asking because I normally print my own. If you intend to print your own, note the third and fourth bullet points under A on the official technical specification . This is for a Greek passport but, like the UK, I think the specification for passport and driv...
