How long does it take to move to Greece?

This European country with so much history and culture has been a popular place to spend the winter for German pensioners and people in early retirement for many years. Many sunny days and mild winters are one reason for this.When shopping, one should bear in mind that outside the tourist resorts (with the exception of large supermarkets), a long lunch break from about 14:00 to 17:00 is common. After that, the shops open again until 20:00 and sometimes even longer.
A prerequisite for the residence permit is that the applicant has a job or has sufficient means of subsistence. 
After 5 years of residence, you can apply for a permanent residence card. This is not compulsory, but it can be useful for dealing with the authorities. This saves you from having to constantly submit proof of income or housing situation. Whether you are moving to Athens, Tripoli, Larisa or planning to relocate elsewhere in this beautiful country, choosing the right removal company is essential.

Moving to Greece, like any foreign move, is a challenge. Then there is the language.Greek is an Indo-European language with a written tradition that spans 3400 years. Ancient Greek, used in ancient times and taught in schools today, and Modern Greek, spoken in Greece today, are different levels of the Greek language.
No work permit is required to exercise a professional activity. There is almost no legal framework for an employment contract. For this reason, you should pay attention to the most important key data (e.g. start of work, time limit, pay, 40-hour week) during negotiations and agree on this in writing.On average, work in Greece is paid much less than in German-speaking countries. It is not easy to find a job here, as jobs are often given out informally. Every second job is arranged through family or friends. In addition, employers are not obliged to report vacancies to the employment office.
To take up a job in Greece, you should have at least a basic knowledge of the Greek language.
Most people who move to Greece from Germany usually bring a large part of their possessions with them. However, in order to ensure that not only the transport, but the entire relocation goes off without complications, you should take care of the formalities as best you can beforehand.

The Greek territory borders Albania, Northern Macedonia, Bulgaria and Turkey. Greece is a parliamentary republic with presidential elements; executive power lies with the government, and to a lesser extent with the president. The capital of the country is Athens. Other major cities are Thessaloniki, Patras, Iraklio and Piraeus. Greece is a member of the United Nations, the OECD, NATO (since 1952), the OSCE and the Council of Europe. In 1981, Greece was admitted to the European Union. On 1 January 2001, Greece joined the Eurozone.  Greece is located on the eastern Mediterranean Sea in southern Europe and is geographically composed of the Greek mainland at the southern end of the Balkans, the Peloponnese peninsula, which was however separated from the mainland by the construction of the Corinth Canal (inaugurated in 1893), and numerous islands, mainly in the Aegean Sea, the Ionian Sea, but also in the Libyan Sea. The political border to the north is formed by the states of Albania (282 km), Northern Macedonia (228 km) and Bulgaria (494 km), and to the east by Turkey. The country has a total area of 131,957 km²: 106,915 km² are on the mainland, 25,042 km² (just under 19%) are distributed over 3,054 islands, 87 of which are inhabited.
Greece has a predominantly Mediterranean climate with mild, humid winters and hot, dry summers. On the coast it is very mild in winter and rains frequently; snow falls only rarely. Summers are relatively hot with only occasional summer thunderstorms.The continental European heat record of 48° was recorded in Greece in 1977:
Form of government:
Greece is a parliamentary republicAntique Greece is known as an early European advanced civilisation that produced important achievements such as Attic democracy and philosophy, early natural sciences and classical Greek architecture. After the end of antiquity and its absorption into various great empires such as Byzantium and the Ottoman Empire, it was not until the 19th century, in the course of the Greek Revolution and the subsequent independence from the Ottomans, that a Greek state could again be formed.
Today's parliamentary presidential democracy dates back to the referendum in December 1974 to abolish the monarchy and introduce a republic.  As a maritime nation and a country with a large coastline, Greece has always been both a country of emigration and a destination for immigrants. In addition to the Christian Orthodox, Greek-speaking majority population, there are several religious and linguistic minorities as well as immigrant groupsSimilar to Ireland, Poland or Croatia, religious affiliation played a significant role as an identifying feature in the formation of the Greek nation.
