Migration Policies

Immigration bill not mass legalization, says minister

The government has denied that it is preparing for a mass legalization of illegal immigrants in Greece by submitting to Parliament a bill reducing the number of years a migrant has to be living in Greece before they can apply for a residence permit. Interior Minister Haris Kastanidis launched a debate in Parliament on Thursday concerning the changes that the government plans to make to immigration laws.
