  1. “Access to 1,547 online government services is now available in English” is only partially true. Mostly the portal only provides links through to these services. You can certainly now follow the links in English but when you get to the service you require it is most likely still to be only available in Greek.

    As an example I need to get a certificate of my EFKA pension payments for 2022 for tax purposes. I was able to go to, select English, select Employment and Insurance, select Retirement, select Get an annual pension statement (eEFKA) and select Start Now all in English with all the text in English. That takes me to the EFKA form which is only available in Greek.

    I find that even where any Greek web site is available in English, government or private, it is better to use the Google Chrome browser which can automatically translate from Greek to English. If you rely on the web sites own English translation you can never be sure that you are not going to get some sort of pop-up in Greek that requires a response or you reach a page that has not been translated, as in the above EFKA example.

    A step in the right direction but not yet a reality.
