Re: Posting Within Crete

We don't get a delivery to our village every day, I think it's only once or twice a week! When waiting for post, from anywhere, I often drive to the post office & they often have it sat there, along with a lot of other post for my village. If I tell them I'm waiting for a letter, packet etc, as ...

Re: Dual nationality UK and Irish

Re: Dual nationality UK and Irish

Bluebird, if you have facebook, there is an excellent group, called British In Greece. I know the question of dual nationality has been asked on there before. I suggest you ask on there, because there might be some potential future problems, if you give up your beige card, registered on your UK Pass...

Re: How Bad Is The Greek Tax System?

From the article. it reads as though it will apply to pensioners, moving to Greece in the future, not to those already living here. Being tax resident in Greece, it doesn't affect me.

Re: The latest info regarding our exchange to Biometric cards .

Phil C,

Have you actually registered in Greece, ie hold the beige permit, or blue resident card? You MUST be in possession of one of these before the end of 2020.
