Our deep knowledge of the local legislation in matters of Customs, Immigration & Port Authority clearance, will allow the captain to clear in and out of Greek waters legally without even notice. Our network of associate agents throughout Greek islands and major ports will be present, in order to assist you for the duration of your sailing in Greece.
We at I.Y.S (Ionian Yacht Services) acting as an authorized clearing agent, shall be more than glad to share our knowledge with every captain of a commercial yacht, and prepare your next charter in Greek waters with safety, avoiding any unpleasant surprises.
As effective form May 2019 all yachts EU flagged or non EU flagged, with loa 7m and above, entering Greek territorial waters are liable to cruising tax payment (TEPAH).
The TEPAH is paid for each month of stay in Greek territorial waters. The payment is made before the beginning of the month for which the fee is due and may also cover more than one month.
The TEPAH tax is different from the permit to cruise (DEKPA or Transit Log)
