What to Expect When Moving to Greece from New York
Greece, a country with roots dating back to ancient times, is rich in culture, food and history. Greece is a mountainous country which is composed of a peninsula mainland and a number of islands. It is surrounded by the Aegean Sea, Mediterranean Sea and the Ionian Sea. Greece is certainly known for its mythology, theater, Olympic Games, olive oil and ancient history. Greece has a varying climate that differs from the coast to the mountains. Greece has a strong economy that is fueled by its large draw of tourists from all over the world, industrious nature and strong work ethic. The main religion observed in Greece is practiced through the Greek Orthodox Church. As you may have suspected, the official language in Greece is Greek. If you have not already studied Greek it is a great idea to learn key phrases and conversation prior to moving to Greece as it can make the transition after moving overseas a bit smoother. After moving to Greece you will have a great deal of things to choose from to explore with your free time. Greece’s ancient history and historic attractions are certainly something worth exploring further. Like much of Europe, the currency in Greece is the Euro. If you have any questions regarding how and when you should exchange your currency for the Euro, please feel free to contact your international relocation specialist at your convenience. The professionals at NY International Shipping would be more than happy to answer any of your questions. If you are moving to Greece you may be required to apply for a visa. Though citizens of some countries are allowed to move to Greece for a period of time and reside there without having to acquire a visa, it is a good idea to consult your local Greek Consulate to determine whether or not you should apply for a visa prior to moving to Greece. Make sure you give yourself plenty of time prior to moving overseas as processing time for visas can vary.
If you still have questions about moving overseas or if you would like to schedule moving to Greece, please contact us.
