Driving in Greece

Holders of UK driving licences who are resident in an EU country should exchange their UK licences for a driving licence from the EU country you are living in before 29 March 2019. For more information see driving abroad.

See driving licence renewal and exchange and taking a vehicle out of the UK.

If you spend more than 6 months of the year in Greece with your UK-registered car, you must register your vehicle with the Greek authorities.

Pensions

See State Pension if you retire abroad and new State Pension.

The UK government will continue to pay state pension, child benefits, and disability benefits to eligible UK nationals in the EU after the UK’s exit from the EU. Find guidance on benefits and pensions in a no deal scenario.

If you’ve worked in Greece, you should claim your pension through your local EOPYY office.

If you haven’t worked in Greece, you should claim your UK state pension by contacting the International Pension Centre.
