IF YOUR RESIDENCE PERMIT EXPIRES BEFORE 31st DECEMBER 2019, YOU CAN RENEW IT NOW


The Asylum Service has announced that everybody who has been granted asylum in Greece and has a residence permit that expires before 31st December 2019 can apply to renew it now. According to the announcement you should apply to renew your residence permit at the latest by 31st October, if your residence permit expires on 31st December. The date when it expires is written on the front side of your residence permit, directly under your name. In the picture of the post, the expire date is circled in red. In general, it is advisable to apply for the renewal of your residence permit as soon as possible, as processing times for the renewal can typically take longer than 2 months. After you have made your application for renewal, please check regularly if your permit was renewed here: http://asylo.gov.gr/en/?page_id=3376. If your residence permit is about to run out, please go to the Regional Asylum Office at least 5 days before it expires and ask for an interim certificate. This certificate proves that you have applied to renew your residence permit but the renewal is still pending.
