Documents Passport. Yacht registration papers. VAT receipt or other proof of payment. You may be asked for proof of competence to handle a yacht such as the RYA Helmsman's certificate or Yachtmaster's certificate.
Customs (Telenion) Greece as part of the EU comes under EU legislation regarding the payment of VAT. Proof of payment or exemption from payment should be carried. Yachts from other EU countries which have paid VAT can keep their boats in Greece without any further restrictions. Non-EU boats should report to customs at the first Port of Entry. Here you will be issued with a Transit Log which is valid for 6 months renewable for another 6 months before you must leave Greece for a non-EU country.
Entry formalities EU yachts on which VAT has been paid or which are exempt can enter Greece from another EU country without formalities. A Greek courtesy ensign should be flown. Non-EU yachts should fly a *Q' flag and a Greek courtesy ensign and make their first port of call at one of the designated Ports of Entry. Here a Transit Log will be issued on which is listed an inventory of dutiable goods and crew members.
Cruising permit On the 14 January 2000 Law 2743/1999 was introduced requiring cruising yachts under any flag (EU or non-EU) to pay taxes amounting to 2000Dx per metre per month. This tax is valid for 30 days and can be renewed after 30 days at the same rate of 2000Dx per metre per month. If a vessel departs from Greek waters before the 30 days expires and then re-enters Greek waters then a fine of 15000Dx per metre must be paid.
