Hi All!!

My partner and myself (-Australian's) are heading to Europe mid November 2012 and plan on staying for a year.

My partner has an Australian and British passport so he is all set to travel/work/live anywhere in the EU for any period of time. (Lucky him!)

I am in the process of gaining my Greek citizenship/passport although have had many lengthy delays with my local Embassy. I have since been told it is possible to complete the registration/passport lodgement process directly in Greece. I have thoroughly researched the application process and understand what has to be done, but my uncertainty is, if I go to Europe using my Australian passport and gain my Greek one while over there, will i have to leave the EU/Schengen area and re-enter for my Greek passport to take affect?

Also does anyone have any experience in dealing with the Greek passport lodgement process??

I hope this is making sense! Everyone I have asked about this won't give me a clear answer! Very confusing indeed! Any advice will be greatly appreciated!

Very warm regards,
Nada =)
