The “Scheduling a registration appointment for subsequent application” platform of the Asylum Service is on

As of Monday 22/8, the production run of the “Scheduling a registration appointment for subsequent application” platform shall be implemented, which is addressed to asylum seekers whose initial application has been finally rejected. In fact, the platform is addressed to those Third Country Nationals (TCNs) who wish to submit a new claim for international protection in our country, after their initial application has been definitively rejected.

The platform is developed and available in: English, Albanian (Sqip), Arabic, Bengali, Dari, Farsi, Georgian, Kurmanji, Pashto, Turkish, Urdu, with the possibility of expanding to more languages, if the need arises in the future.

The platform can be accessed through the following link:

In order to properly apply the scheduling and to facilitate your assistance, please arrive at least 30 minutes before your scheduled registration appointment, holding all of your identification documents. With the start of functioning of the above procedure, the Skype app that was previously in force for booking registration appointments will be deactivated.

Finally, we remind you that, for all interested persons who have never visited the Asylum Service Offices and have never submitted an application for international protection up to now, it is now possible to get registered at the following points: Malakasa Camp and Diavata Camp, following the procedure “Scheduling an initial registration appointment” described in the platform, which you can also access through the above-mentioned link ( ).



Have you received the below invitation on Telegram lately?

Take a closer look please. If you have, please be aware that it is A FRAUD. If you haven’t, please be careful if you ever receive one.

Asylum-seekers and refugees have reported receiving this invitation to join a Telegram channel acting as UNHCR and using its logo.

This is a FRAUD and is not associated with UNHCR.

The official communication channels of UNHCR Greece are the following:

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.
