CAN I CHECK IF MY RESIDENCE PERMIT OR TRAVEL DOCUMENT IS READY TO PICK UP?

If you are granted asylum in Greece, you will get a residence permit, showing that you are allowed to legally reside in Greece. If you got refugee status, you can also apply for a travel document, allowing you to travel to other countries (but not live there!!). Unfortunately it takes at the moment a lot of time until a residence permit or a travel document for refugees is issued. But in the internet you can check, if these documents are ready. On the website of the Greek Asylum Service frequently lists are published on which it is possible to see if a residence permit or a travel document for refugees is ready to be picked up.

Each link leads you to a document with all the case numbers for which the residence permit or travel document can be picked up. Your case number you can find for example in your white card or on the paper you got from the Greek Asylum Service when you were granted your asylum.
