In particular, we will not need to apply for the new residence document till after Jan 1 2020, and either the present beige or blue certificates will b...

Please pass this information on to any British personnel you know of living within the Municipality of Sitia and ask them ...

Hi David

Best advice for starters is to see your accountant pdq. He/she will advise you as to the exact paperwork required.

Re: Athens Airport --the long walk

Sounds like the trek to the EJ gates at Gatwick, which seem to get ever further away! Re Athens, though, a better reason than ever to try not to have short connecting times. Booking through with Aegean isn't foolproof, as I know to my cost, but at least you are guaranteed to get on the next availabl...

Re: Block on renewal of IKA books due to BREXIT

... had to sign the declaration, which showed that we live here, and have no other insurance... Interesting. The declaration I and my friends signed, in Greek, didn't mention that we lived here, simply that we didn't have other insurance and would inform them if we did. I did try to point out that ...

Re: Block on renewal of IKA books due to BREXIT

We renewed ours at the IKA office in Sitia this morning. Produced passports and tax clearance certificate, and had to sign the declaration, which showed that we live here, and have no other insurance, and that was it. The declaration was in English, so clear enough - the first copy I was given was i...

Re: Property Register declaration

On consideration, surely the smart move is to forget about actually submitting your declaration until the deadline for Greek residents has passed. (Assuming you are non-resident for tax purposes). The office will then only be dealing with non-residents. By definition, there will be a lot fewer of t...

Re: Greek Driving Licence

Our local KEP handled this very smoothly this morning. The one catch was that we hadn't checked on the correct size for the photos and our spares from a UK passport application were too small. Easily solved. They also confirmed that we can pay the fee online. Do you know what size they should be ? ...

Re: Looking for doctor in Sitia.

Working on the assumption that you mean a general practitioner - a pathologos; we use Dr Despina Efchetzi - Δέσποινα Ευχέτζι. Office is on the "dual carriageway", opposite the main car park, and on the other side of the side street from the sportswear shop. Mornings from 9, but the waiting...

No, Andrew. 2 forms, each of which listed the 3 properties. The staff were extremely helpful, and were all to a greater or lesser extent, English speakers.
