Well, this morning we managed to get temporary AMKAs from our local KEP, but it wasn't easy. We tried it because the Chania KEP told us that they couldn't issue temporary AMKAs, full stop, and that all we had to do was go to https://emvolio.gov.gr
and we would get an appointment for vaccination. It's nearly three weeks since we first registered and we haven't heard a peep (we've registered twice since, after being told the site was 'working now'. Getting the temporary AMKAs required firmness and persistence, and, unfortunately, raised voices. We were told again to go to the site, and that nothing could be done, but after producing the documentation containing Article 248 (https://collab.lawspot.gr/sites/default ... 6-2021.pdf
p4965) the person decided to issue the AMKAs after all and the deadlock was broken. One of our names was spelled wrongly, and we were told it couldn't be corrected, and we were told the other thing we were there for - the witnessing of a signature - couldn't be carried out, insisting that we needed a biometric identity card, and not the cream one. But the person seemed upset, so we decided to take our victory, if that's what it turns out to be, and leave while the going was good.
They did tell us before we left that we would have to wait several weeks for an appointment. Now we're trying the emvolio site again, this time with our new AMKAs, to see what happens, but we're getting a constant 403 error. This error is usually associated with an authentication failure, but we've cleared cookies and tried different locations. Curiously, a friend in Corfu seems to be able to get to the site consistently with no trouble. My speculation is that she registered a little while ago, and perhaps has the magic authentication cookie on her PC.
