Greece to Open First Controlled-Access Asylum-Seeker Camps on Leros and Kos

November 10, 2021

ATHENS – The migration and asylum ministry on Wednesday presented the three pillars of Greece’s national strategy for migration, saying that their adoption brings measurable results.

“It is the first time that announcements concerning migration have not been just empty words, underlined the ministry, adding that “two years later, our country has regained control of migration….It is planning a ‘tomorrow’ with certainty and optimism.”

Specifically the three pillars are:

– The completion of a new and modern national reception system at the entry points, with closed and controlled-access facilities built to European standards. The new centres on the islands of Kos and Leros will be inaugurated on November 27.

– Restricting the repercussions of the migration crisis on local communities via financing tools for strengthening services and building projects in municipalities where migrant facilities operate.

– Gradually decongesting the islands and mainland by ensuring an equal distribution of asylum-seekers in all regions of Greece.
