Re: Greek Cruising Tax
toggle quoted message Show quoted text
This discussion has made me realize that I really don’t have a clue about rules and regulations in countries we’ll be visiting on our 5-10 year cruise in the S Pacific and Med. I’ve sailed the Caribbean extensively and have never been asked for any paperwork other than USCG boat registration, passports, and occasionally insurance coverage.
Iris has a 6-pack coast guard license, but I don’t know what it says about sailing in open waters, etc. I am not licensed by the US Coast Guard, or any other agency. If she flies home and I’m sailing single-handed for a while, will I be required to have any papers that show competency as we sail around the Med?
What about Central and S America and the S Pacific?
Other than Noonsite, are there any internet resources that spell out in detail what paperwork, insurance, taxes, permits, etc are required of cruisers?
Thanks for any ideas about how to assure we will have everything we need.

Thanks for the advice and for the offer to help find an agent. I am not sure of what the cost for this service my be but this option certainly sounds appealing for at least our first entry into Greece to insure that all of the i’s are dotted and the t’s crossed. Mostly likely we will arrive in Greece from the North so a suggestion for a Port of entry and of an agent there would be very helpful. We will be sailing around the boot of Italy from Sardinia and we want to visit Croatia and Greece for sure. The gulf of Kotor in Montenegro looks appealing as well. My wife would really like to see Venice so if the conditions are good we will head up to the North end first and work our way down the West coast to Greece. If the conditions are not favourable for the trip North up the Adriatic the general plan is to cross to the West coast to Croatia somewhere, any suggestions on a port of entry? We will have a bit over 4 months this season so we will need to plan to be outside the Schengen area for a bit over a month so I think Croatia and Montenegro are our two options in that regard. Any general routing suggestions from those familiar with this area would be appreciated.
