Greece is the home of rich Hellenic culture, compelling mythology, and the splendor of the Mediterranean Sea. Greece is popular among retirees and working expats, particularly for those who are remote workers. Remote workers are attracted to Greece’s low cost of living, which is 30% cheaper than other areas in Europe. Canadians are especially drawn to the mild climate, offering a stark contrast with Canada’s frigid winters.

Finding work in Greece is a little more complicated than it may be in other countries, partly because Greece does not have many multinational companies. For this reason, fluency in the Greek language is critical if you want to work in country for a Greek employer. If you are a remote worker, you can afford a good living in Greece with money from employers outside of the country.

The gentle climate of Greece lends itself to good health and wellness. The country is home to one of the largest populations of centenarians.

If you are moving from Canada to Greece, you may want to bring your vehicle or personal goods with you. How can you import a vehicle into the country? Is there a duty on household goods? When it comes to importing your belongings to Greece, there are several factors to consider. This guide will give you the basics of what you need to import your personal belongings or vehicle to Greece. As always, you should check with local customs officials for the most current guidance.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
