Corinthian Canal and Papers

If we are just passing through Greece (Innocent passage) do we need a Greek Cruising permit to pass through the Corinthian canal?

Are any papers required or you just pay and go? Are insurance papers needed?

For the Canal, as I recall, I only presented the ship's document and, to be sure, lots of Euros. However, some of the port captains definitely wanted to see the cruising permit, in fact that was a norm when it was actually a 'port' with harbor officials (vs. the free & uncompleted marinas).

In 2005 and again in 2007 all that they wanted to see was ships papers and as Jack says, the euros.
But seriously doubt you'd race past all Greek ports without stopping (if so you'd be missing lots) so why not do the right thing and get the permit at your first port of entry?
Enjoy

Went through it a few years ago. We already had a cruising permit which they stamped, but if you are in-transit and not cruising then you have a good argument not to need one. I don't recall being asked for the insurance, and if you are going from west to east you are already through it before you get to the office.

hummm I think your gonna need it all-- Insurance, cruising permit and the ships papers-passport-- those guys are used to doing things one way and thats there way- what ever there way is- for instance I got on a half empty express bus to Athens and moved to a different seat than the one i was assigned and the guy said i had to go back to my seat even though half the seats were empty- so good luck but be prepaired to go thru all the paper work

If not having a cruising permit in Greek waters, especially as non European, you might run into a big trouble with high fines.
Sometimes they control everything, sometimes not, but if they control and you have not, good luck that you have enough money ready and in the worst case they tie the ship.
Do not underestimate the Greek Coastguard.
