Re: Travel-confusion

Vaccination and biometric residence permits are not connected at all. A vaccination certificate might be all he needs to satisfy COVID travel rules or he might need to combine it with one or more PCR tests or possibly rapid flow tests. He will only know exactly what the rules are when he gets closer...

Re: On the move

The person I dealt with was George Tsinaris but that was back in 2006 so I don't know if he is still with the company. A friend used them to move some stuff to Romania a year or so ago. It was only small items, i.e. no furniture, so he bought a load of plastic orange crates, lined them with cardboar...

Re: On the move

I used KMF to move from northern Greece to Crete and found them to be quite good. They are now based on the road that goes from the Omalos road, near the agricultural prison, to Galatas immediately after the petrol station. They are a company that manufactures prefabricated buildings but also has an...

Re: Which internet provider to go for?

Depending which months you intend to be in Crete it might be worth asking Cosmote about their holiday package. Instead of paying for the whole year you only pay for a certain number of months. It was designed for people with holiday homes. I think it only allowed for a single period so it wouldn't w...

Re: Which internet provider to go for?

Wind do a 50 Mbps fibre internet package for €26 per month but I have no idea how they bill or if you can pay with card. Nova have a cheap 24 Mbps internet package for €15.75 per month if you are prepared to pay 12 months up front. I guess that would get round the billing and paying problems. No fre...

Re: Which internet provider to go for?

So that looks like Cosmote would fulfil Tsambi's requirements.

Re: Which internet provider to go for?

Is the card registered to your Greek address, Tim, or to a UK address? I have one debit card registered to a UK address, my son's house, and one to my Greek address.

Re: Which internet provider to go for?

Cosmote certainly do online billing. I simply get an email with the bill attached. You can then go to their payment page enter the payment code on the bill and it should take you to a page showing the amount owed. Tick the box accepting terms and conditions and click on "Submit". That take...

Re: IKTEO

I just checked with a friend who had his car tested recently. There is certainly a 7 day grace period. He thinks it is 7 calendar days not 7 working days. You definitely pay double if you are outside the grace period but he thinks there might be a fine on top, not sure how much. We cannot really fin...

Re: The system isn’t working

I don't regard it as a waste of time. I am not trying to convince the anti-vax posters. I am trying to provide other readers with accurate, data based information that demonstrates that what the anti-vaxers post is untrue. Otherwise they might garner converts. "Bad men need nothing more to comp...

Re: IKTEO

I think that there is normally a short grace period such as a week to ten days when no penalty applies. Because of the pandemic much longer delays were implemented, e.g. some months, but I am not sure exactly how they worked. For example the allowed delay might only apply while the IKTEOs were close...

Re: The system isn’t working

People should be aware that the anti-vax campaigns are not a few misguided individuals supported by a large number of others who simply believe what they are told. The anti-vax campaign is a multi-million dollar, multi-national industry. Those behind it are getting immensely rich on the backs of the...

Re: Help for expat with husband suffering from Alzheimer’s

Apart from reciprocal healthcare through an S1 Form the UK seems to have backed off from a lot of benefits for expats. It is quite difficult to get information from UK government web sites as they are highly focussed on how benefits apply to foreign nationals living in the UK, not UK nationals livin...

Re: Firefox Version 89.0

The folders lost colour on Thunderbird email client as well. Lots of beef about that on forums. I have mine set to open on a blank page rather than the home page. I have a search box next to the address bar which allows me several search options, not just Google. I find that Google search is slowly ...
