Topic Info: 
  1. Base Exit/Entry Procedure (As of:  Aug 13): You will need an access number to enter NSA Souda Bay. This number is obtained from a representative of the security department after he/she has given you the local security brief in the terminal. This number has an expiration date so when you get the number verify the expiration date. The Souda Bay passenger reps may or may not tell you about the requirement for an access number so obtain security brief and access number before you leave the terminal. If you have to go back and get the brief and number it will be inconvenient for all concerned.
    1. If you arrive in Crete via transportation other than a Space-A flight then you'll need an access number to enter the base. During "normal" working hours go to the MVRO (Motor Vehicle Registration Office); it's the small white building just to your right as you enter the parking lot outside the Greek Gate. They will set up with appropriate security briefing and an access number. If you arrive when the MVRO is closed, go and speak to the guard at the Greek Gate and he will call base security. Someone will come, brief you, verify your ID, and provide you with a temporary access number until MVRO opens.
  2. Electricity: Local electrical outlets: Greece has it’s own connectors. There are a couple of US style outlets in BQ room and BQ common rooms. Adapters are available at NEX ($1.99 in July 09) Caution: your laptop power supply may not fit into the adapter.
  3. Telephones: Local (off-base) land-line phone calls are not available from BQ rooms. The agent at the main billeting office has a cell phone available for local calls and DSN calls. If you use a calling card to make a local call from billeting room, beware: you may get charged for the call going to CONUS and back to local.
  4. Misc: Retiree’s can purchase items at the Navy Exchange. In August 2009 a renovated NEX was under construction across from Building 49. If renting a car parking on base is limited and Gas coupons and gas are no longer sold to Retirees on base.

    1. Some folks have reported a good experience with Stelios Tzamariadakis’s "Horafakia" in a small village of that same name nearby the NSA. Simply give him a call on his cell when you land and he will meet you at the front gate with the car (short 3-4 minute walk).
