There are 3 free trade zones in Greece: the Piraeus, Thessaloniki, and Heraklion port areas. Imports may be brought into these zones without payment of customs duties or other taxes and remain free of all duties and taxes if afterward transshipped or re-exported. In the same way, documents concerning the receipt, storage, or transfer of goods within the zones are free from stamp taxes.
