pirate Re: Buying in Greece and re-registering advice

A Swiss registration is apparently only allowed for Swiss citizens, which I'm not, and in any case this would require an independent safety survey (=€)

And as for insurance I guess Pantaenius would be a first place to look.

Any thoughts?
Forget Greece.. the Dutch will prove more expensive.. if using your sister have her name second on the registration and e-mail her the completed online form to be printed off and then mailed to Newport with a postal order for the required amount.
Or do it online paying by credit card.. however if its not a UK credit card you WILL open yourself up for further investigation/proof of residency.

PS; Have you investigated the Belgium registration..??
