Hellenic Community of Edinburgh

The Hellenic Community of Edinburgh (HCE) was founded in 2014 by a group of Greeks and Cypriots, permanent residents of Edinburgh, who shared a common vision: Το represent and support solidarity amongst the Hellenic population of Edinburgh as an ethnic group, with the view to further promote their welfare and common interests. In a short length of time, HCE has managed to establish itself as the main point of contact between Greek people of Edinburgh with the rest of the world.

The progress and successful operation of HCE was formally acknowledged in 2018, when the organisation was awarded its Scottish Charity status by the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR).

After a relevant request of one of our members, we conducted a quick search for where one can take this test, but also at what price and the results of our research is as follows:

We recommend all passengers to check the relevant government and airline guidelines/regulations before their trip, as these are constantly changing. HCE will try to report any changes, but bears no responsibility for the validity of these updates.
