Depending on when Greece reopens to US travellers, I am potentially in a very similar situation with regard to the VAT and the 18 month limit. My boat is located in Preveza, Greece and I have been using an agent there named Sofia to handle the paperwork. I inquired with her on this issue and received the response posted below:
As long as the transit log deposit to the the customs office the clock is stopped
So the sueno can stay without VAT mire time than 18 months.
(Sofia placed the transit log for Sueño with the customs office last October)
Despite this positive response I am still concerned about going over the 18 month limit. Do you feel that this information is adequate or should I follow up and try to verify this information? If you recommend that I verify then would you know who I should contact?
