You should be able to get your citizenship Nikita. Living in Greece since 76 is huge.

Most countries give it to you after 5 years. You should make some phone calls.

There is no Public Service in Greece, and sometimes you shouldn't take the first answer given to you. Greeks, many of them, are conservative with the truth.

Any EU citizen can vote in any EU country where he/she is resident. That's because it's a EU election not a Greek (in this case) election.

You can probably find out how to do it on-line if you feel it's worth it.

Wrong. Mainland Greeks didn't vote for Shistofkias and Annanstasiades.

You see they are not allowed to vote in Cyprus' national elections... :lol:

EU citizens living with a residence permit in another EU country can also vote in local elections. It is only national elections that they can't vote in.

Since it's my constitutional right as a Cypriot to fly the Greek national flag, I will do it here:
