In conjunction with the Greek Custom Authorities, we have arranged to assist with the customs clear-in formalities necessary for visiting yachts. To facilitate smooth clearance on arrival in Rhodes, all preliminary paperwork can be completed in advance by our office.
Visiting yachts should have on board the original yacht Registry and a valid insurance cover policy.
All passengers should carry passports and crew members seamans books or proof of competence if vessel is commercial.
Customs and port police
When entering Greece all yachts must clear with port authority, customs as well as immigration. The ship’s papers – including a passenger and crew list – will be inspected by the port authority, then customs will issue a transit log, renewable after six months, which allows the yacht to sailing in Greece.
The transit log should be issued only to non-EU vessels, or to EU vessels wishing to purchase fuel at duty-free prices. At subsequent ports this transit log may be inspected by the port authority. When leaving Greece, the transit log is returned to customs.
