Dear Happychapiebear

This msg is old, so it might be out of date BUT..

If you are an UK citizen with residency status in Greece.. you MUST register with the Greek Immigration and PROVE you are married ( Marriage Cert and any Divorces must be translated into GREEK by a Greek immigration approved Translator ) your bride can apply for a Visa to live, work and reside in Greece or even the UK for FREE !

In Cyprus we had to prove we lived together, and were divorced, but provided YOU are a resident your wife can enter Greece on a tourist Visa - armed with the marriage certs and an pre arranged appointment with the Immigration authorities..

You wife may need to demonstrate she has medical cover or a Nat insurance number

WE married in Cyprus and have done the whole thing, and now reside in the UK..
