Vehicle registration in Greece
21 May 2020
If you have your permanent domicile in your Member State but you plan on residing in another European Union country for less than 6 months, you do not have to register your car or pay any registration taxes there – it will remain registered in the country of your permanent domicile. You may however be asked to pay other applicable taxes related to the use of your car in that specific country (circulation taxes).
If you are residing in another European Union country for less than 6 months and you haven’t registered your car there, you may not legally lend or rent your car to a person domiciling in that country, who may only drive your car if you are in the car with him/her.
You may, however, lend your car to visiting friends or family – on condition that they are not domiciling in your new country.
If you are planning to stay in another country for more than 6 months, you should normally register this country as your new place of domicile where you should also register your car without any delay.
