DUTY AND TAX RATE PERCENTAGE
Persons who are taking up permanent legal residence in Greece ("repatriating") may be allowed to import their household effects without payment of Customs duty. This special provision of Greek law can apply to someone only if he/she is granted a residence permit before arriving in Greece. In general, such permit is granted only to those who are of Greek descent, are married to Greek citizens, or are also being granted work permits. (A Greek citizen may also be allowed to use this provision of law if he/she is moving back to Greece after having been legally residing outside of Greece.)
The studies at a University or another faculty of a country do not mean that the person has his/her usual residence in this country. In any case, the person wishing to import the items must contact the nearest Greek consulate in his/her country of residence, providing a list of all the items and proof of foreign residence; the Greek Consulate will provide the certificate required for duty-free import.
