Re: Latest EHIC & Reciprocal Healthcare

Surrey and Sussex NHS information leaflet for entitlement to NHS treatment non resident. https://www.surreyandsussex.nhs.uk/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/Entitlement-to-NHS-Hospital-Treatment-for-Non-Resident-UK-Citizens.pdf Dated Oct 2009, so let's hope guidelines have changed. It would be nice if th...

Re: Latest EHIC & Reciprocal Healthcare

Healthcare in the UK is based on residency not on contribution. Anybody who lives in the UK is entitled to healthcare on the NHS whether they have contributed to National Insurance or not. Anybody who does not live in the UK is not entitled to treatment on the NHS even if they have contributed. Not...

Re: I smelled a rat, and I found a rat

Maud, you think I have made “unpleasant “ comments? Or is it more that you don’t like what I said (whatever it was). Also you claim that by voting leave people are depriving others to live in the EU? I see no evidence that UK citizens (if that’s to whom you refer) will not be able to do so. Well, t...

Re: I smelled a rat, and I found a rat

Kamisiana, don’t let the almost like gang culture get to you. You have a right to have a different opinion. Just because you choose to live in a EU country doesn’t automatically mean you would want to believe in the EU project. Live wherever you want. If you don't like the golf club you belong to y...

Amen. How anybody might not be able to see that is the real mystery to me.

Re: Latest EHIC & Reciprocal Healthcare

I maybe wrong but this might affect you if you live in Crete. https://www.businessinsider.com/nhs-charge-eu-citizens-treatment-after-no-deal-brexit-2019-8 It suggests that showing proof of residence will do for EU citizens in the UK, which is actually far less strict than our having to show an Amka...

Green card car insurance.

We're making outline plans to leave Greece should hard Brexit come to pass. This would involve MrsB heading off to Blighty ahead of me while I drive back a little later, which means motor insurance for driving in other countries. The internet seems to be telling me different things - that 3rd party ...

Re: Pound - Euro fx rate

Hi I should apologise - I wrote the original post while waiting for an oil change at the local garage (cost, about half of the same car in the U.K.) so was probably a bit irritated. But I do think there is a moment of truth facing many expats all over Europe and the future may not be pretty. Also, ...

Re: Greek Driving Licence

I'm not sure how submitting an E1 two days before the extended deadline can be described as " too legal ". Three days later and it would be illegal and subject to a fine. I submitted mine before the original deadline at the end of June. My first stage payment of 3 will go out today, 30 Ju...

Re: Greek Driving Licence

It is not useless. It is an official certification that you have applied to renew your licence and have submitted all the necessary documentation. The table, which takes up most of the document, is a list of what you have submitted. Unless it has changed in the last few years it reads: 1.Applicatio...

Re: Greek Driving Licence

KEP have been faffing with my UK to Greek licence transfer for so long now I'm beginning to worry. At the moment all I have is a (possibly useless) KEP document with a photocopy of my old UK licence attached. Replacing the UK licence requires UK residency. Apart from plain lying about where I've bee...

Re: Fantasy Premier League

Will do :)

I have a team, Dross Utd, in a league involving some UK friends. What's your team called, as I might see you in the Greek standings.

Might call the new team Dross 2nd XI

eta: eek - can I actually have 2 teams in different leagues? Suspect not.

Re: IKA and AMKA

The big worry in this household of two S1 pensioners is just how much notice we might get of any loss of IKA rights. Loss of IKA is terminal for us. We try to sell up and go back to the UK. If that loss is established at end of Oct and means our IKA won't be renewed next March then at least we have ...
