HOW DO I KNOW WHEN TO RENEW MY RESIDENCE PERMIT?

 

If you have asylum in Greece, you will get a residence permit, which is normally valid for three years. You can see one on the picture of the post. The date of expiry of the residence permit is marked in our picture with a red circle. Some months before your residence permit expires, ideally 6 months before, you should submit an application to renew your residence permit.

The Asylum Service has recently announced, that if you have asylum in Greece and your residence permit expires by 31st of December, you have to submit an application to renew your residence permit by latest 31st of October. Please don't wait until the last moment before renewing the residence permit, because this could cause trouble for you!
