#10597 Residency Permit Needed For Eu Citizen?

Posted by Carolina on 18 March 2007 - 08:30 PM in Living in Crete

Ton you really should quote your source when you copy whole material from a webpage – the info above posted by Ton came from my page on www.livingincrete.net

The documentation requirements vary depending on which police are issuing the permit, ( some ask for 4 photos, others ask for 6 as for the Greek tautotita - ID card) and all documents in my list above have been requested by the police at one time or another.

Assim I lived here for 17 years without a residence permit and was never asked for one in that time. Then 4 years ago when I bought a car I was told by the Mixanologiko (where you register the ownership) that I needed one. Went to the local police station and they refused to issue me one, saying I don’t need it as I’m an EU citizen. When I insisted that the mixanologiko needed one to register the car in my name, they told me to register the car in my husbands name (he’s Greek)!! Eventually they succumbed and pulled out a card and form to fill in. The permit says ‘Residence Permit for a National of a Member State of the EEC’. A year later I lost my drivers licence. To get an equivalent one issued in Greece I needed to produce a residence permit.

Suddenly I was asked for a permit twice in one year, so it's wrong to say that you 'do not need' one. That is your experience so far. There may well come a time when you need one Assim. Whether or not the police can be bothered to issue you one is another story!
