All UNHCR services and activities are free of charge. At no point will you be asked to pay for any of the services provided by UNHCR or any of its partners. Please do not believe anyone who tells you that they can help you with registration, resettlement or other services if you pay.

Fake Skype Accounts


  • We are aware that fake SKYPE accounts are being used to mislead asylum-seekers into thinking that they are contacting the Greek Asylum Office. Access to all asylum services, including SKYPE, are completely FREE of charge. Official staff of the Asylum Office do NOT request an exchange of services or money for these appointments. If you have been a victim of this scam, we encourage you to file a complaint with the local police authority.
