Greece to introduce e-charter agreement

The endless queues, paperwork, long wait times, and the large number of officers at the Greek Coast Guard working in bureaucratic positions will soon be a thing of the past.

Last month, a meeting was held at the Ministry of Shipping with the participation of competent bodies and representatives from professional yachting associations in Greece for the creation of an e-charter agreement.

In combination with the e-registry system that launched in 2018 to record all private and commercial yachts in Greece, the e-charter agreement will make it easier to control yacht charters in the country and will protect the industry from unfair competition and illegal chartering.

The e-charter agreement is being developed by the Independent Department of Informatics of the General Secretariat of Ports, in collaboration with the Directorate of Maritime Investments and Maritime Tourism and the Ministry of Finance.
