If you're coming from Greece and have a passport, I would bring it just to be sure, as although the UK is part of the EU passports are still checked I think?

I went to Holland from the UK a couple of months ago and my passport was checked at customs both at Gatwick and Schippol.

I'd check it out if I were you - Easyjet might not need passports but I think the passport control people at the airport will.

I don't want to alarm you but I'd hate someone to come all that way and then be turned back at the passport check.

DEFINETLY BRING YOUR PASSPORT WITH YOU FROM WHEREEVER YOU COME FROM.
What with all the terrorism going on I really would advise it. Also you always need it anyway!

Well Vasilis doesn't have a passport, so he doesn't really have any choice. However, it's the European Union laws we're talking about; the airport security has no choice but to accept an official Greek identification card.

Due to the extra security for terroristsattacks every passenger is checked for a PASSPORT OR an IDENTIFICATION CARD. I don't have a passport either but an Dutch Identification Card, and that's good for traveling within Europe. On the backside of the card, you can see the which countries you can travel with that.

I inquired about this matter of the Greek Embassy in UK and they said that I won't have any single problem, except maybe from a short delay.

<IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_lol.gif"> Vasilis <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_lol.gif"> I am sure players from the official Greek football team were not stopped for a 'slight delay' when they came through customs so if you explain to them that you are a member of the Greek KO2 football team then they should rush you through and lay on a cheaffeur to get you to the hotel. <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif">
