Hang in there Rick,
Temporary Amkas start with 9, I believe. Movement is afoot to remedy and issue or replace Amka number. The British Consulate is aware, the Greek government is aware.
If you have Facebook I have seen quite a bit of chatter about this on British in Greece. Also have wee shufty at Apokoronas Our Home as it as been highlighted there too. The wheels turn slowly...
This is from Apokoronas Our Home
IMPORTANT Update for those of you having trouble with AMKA numbers - please pass on to your friends ( The email address is at the end of the message):
From the Vice Consul:
"During my communication with the Public Health Authority of Crete, I flagged to them there are as many as 40 UK nationals who have not had their temporary AMKA yet in Apokoronas.
They asked me to collate everyone’s 1) names, 2) application reference numbers on the emvolio site and 3) application dates.
Please email me these details as well as your consent to the British Consulate to share their details with the Greek Ministry of Health.
Also, if there are others whose regular AMKA does not work in the emvolio site, or they experience other obstacles preventing them from receiving their vaccination, please email me directly as soon as possible and preferably by the end of this week so a supplementary list can be sent to the Greek authorities first thing on Monday morning."
