Migration and Asylum Ministry to Relocate to Keranis Building by End December

November 27, 2020

ATHENS — The relocation of the migration and asylum ministry's agencies and services to the Keranis building in Aghios Ioannis Rentis will be concluded by the end of the year, a ministry announcement said on Friday.

The ministry's announcement also said that "a long-standing goal becomes reality and the scattered and far-flung services of the ministry will, for the first time, be gathered together under the same roof, something that will also save budget funds".

The gradual relocation, which is expected to be completed by December 28, concerns the general secretariat of migration policy, the general directorate of migration policy, the general directorate of administrative and financial services and the independent department of civil emergency planning, all of which were situated in downtown Athens, as well as the asylum service and other departments and services that had been spread around the city.

The Regional Asylum Office will remain on Kanellopoulou Avenue, while the Regional Asylum Office of Piraeus, currently housed on Navarchou Notara Street in Pireaus, will be transferred to the building on Filoxenou and Spintharou Street.
