ATHENS – The state agency that certifies college-level academic degrees from abroad (DOATAP) will be processing applications within a 60-day cycle, Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said in a tweet on Thursday.

Mitsotakis said the Hellenic National Academic Recognition and Information Center, as its full title is, has been upgraded and has completed processing all old applications, while from now on processing fees will be reduced by 20.

As the tweet said, “The upgraded DOATAP has processed all old applications for the recognition of university degrees from abroad within 4 months,” Mitsotakis said, “responding positively to 4,000 of them. It will now be completing every application within 60 days, while processing fees (paravolo) will be reduced by 20%.”


For Hellenes and Philhellenes, there are a variety places, sentiments, and ideas that draw them to different parts of the Hellenic world.
