Greek Asylum Service

The role of UNHCR in Greece does not include receiving and/or processing of asylum or resettlement applications. UNHCR staff will inform you of how you can apply for asylum with the Greek authorities.

The Greek Asylum Service is the only responsible office for processing asylum and related procedures.
