I am not sure if there is a "time limit" on the GGT, but evidently there is on the import duty tax, in terms of accepting delivery and shipping it back "too quickly".
I will head back to CONUS after a little 3 years of ownership, so all should be good...just have a year over here with no warranty.
You can purchase additional year of warranty for 250 Euro. I think it's worth peace of mind.
