Problems related to the extension of immigration and refugee residence permits are highlighted by three organizations, the Hellenic Immigrant Forum, the Hellenic Refugee Forum and SolidarityNow. As they note in their joint announcement, complaints of non-recognition of this extension from the Immigration Ministry, other relevant ministries, municipalities or citizen service providers are increasing.
In addition, they note that if the services began their reopening with the presence of the public only after a scheduled appointment, it is too late, while the operation of the online platform without proper instructions for those concerned, has resulted in additional delays in renewals or the issuance of a residence permit.
Finally, they point out that each decentralized administrative service operates in a different way and passes all bureaucratic problems to the bureaucrats. The organizations are calling on the state to immediately resolve the issues that have arisen.
