Re: Insurance for a British reg van in Crete?

Anyone recommend an insurance company for a UK reg van at a Crete address ? I'm not sure what exactly that means? As far as I know you cannot have a UK registered vehicle registered to a Greek address. If it is UK registered the log book must contain a UK address. Presumably you had UK insurance ba...

Re: Healthcare

Try KEP. They issued my AMKA number. They should know which order it has to be done in and may be able to help you. I've usually managed to find somebody who speaks English at IKA in Chania, whichever counter I needed to go to. Not necessarily the first person you encounter. Warwick PS I had my IKA ...

Re: Residence permits.

It is not completely clear what you are supposed to be looking at on the link as it contains lots of different items. You need to click on the Living in Greece link about halfway down the page and then the Registering with Greek Authorities link. That takes you to a link to a pdf document on registr...

Re: Official translation - English to Greek

I don't know where you are Glen but the KEP office at the town hall in Chania is always pretty busy. Ones outside the city centre tend to be less so. I haven't been recently but I have never had to wait at the one in Vamvakopoulo.

Re: Residence permits.

Currently a British wife would have residency in Greece in her own right through the Directive. After Brexit, if the final agreement follows the report published a week or so ago, the British wife would still have residency in Greece in her own right. If the final agreement doesn't follow the publis...

Re: Electronic transactions’ lottery - Check if you've won!

As far as I am aware, Bob, you would need to be paying tax in Greece to qualify. A quote from the link provided by Stavros, my emphasis in red: "...based on taxpayers’ transactions... I guess it is possible that some ex-pats may be paying tax in Greece on income arising in Greece even if they a...

Re: Residence permits.

I'm not sure how Brexit could in any way affect the rights of a non-EU wife of a Greek man. They will be whatever they are now under Greek and EU law. Paragraph 2 of Article 6 and Article 7 of DIRECTIVE 2004/38/EC state that the right of residence extends to family members who are not nationals of a...

Re: Electronic transactions’ lottery - Check if you've won!

The system is not there for ex-pats, Andrew. It is for Greeks. If HMRC had a similar system would you say, "Well nobody is going to look at that it is too difficult". Most Greeks would not use an accountant to complete their tax returns. If they are not able to do it themselves a family me...

Re: Residence permits.

That sounds about right for the permanent residence certificate. Not really a big issue. By town hall I presume you mean KEP at the town hall? It is also possible to do it directly at the driving centre but I prefer to use KEP. When you reach 80 you have to do it at the driving centre and you need o...

Re: Residence permits.

Nobody knows for certain until the final agreement is reached but the likely outcome is discussed extensively in this thread, strangely enough started by you Andrew only two weeks ago. Is your memory going?

Re: Electronic transactions’ lottery - Check if you've won!

Given the convoluted nature of even checking that you've won, how many winners will ever claim? Is the payout automatic? If not, only that tiny number of people who: a) have an online taxisnet account and can access it b) speak Greek c) have even heard about this d) can work out where to find the r...

Re: Residence permits.

I can't think of a good reason, Jean. As you say nobody really needs one except for a couple of activities like buying a car and getting/renewing a Greek driving licence.

Re: Residence permits.

Filippos, it is a certificate that does NOT need renewing BUT it is NOT a certificate of permanent residence. The two are different. Specifically the permanent residence certificate is blue and the words in capital letter at the bottom of the front page are different. I will try to post an image. Wa...
