I know its a long shot.... but...
I have been living in Crete on and off for the last 18 months (trying to build a house - well my husband is doing most of the work and he has been on Crete since our arrival in Dec 08!). I have returned once to the UK to do work and gave in my notice in April this year to return to Crete
... so far so good.
I am now returning to the UK again in three weeks to do some agency work for about 3 months (I work in social care). I have just been contacted by one of the UK agencies I have registered with and been asked for a 'Criminal Records Check' from the police in Greece!! as there is an employment gap in my CV! I suspect this is going to take forever and be expensive. Have been given a contact:
Ministry of Justice
Criminal Records Department
96 Messoghion Street
115 27 Athens
I really do hope I am not expected to go to Athens
Any advice/info would be very gratefully received
Thank you Carol
