Alternate Minister for Civil Protection Nikos Toskas, who presented the list, said the decision aims at facilitating migrants who meet conditions for a legal stay in Greece to visit their countries in 2016.
While this decision is valid, all foreigners, regardless of nationality, will be able to visit their country and return more than once. The measures also apply for those who left Greece in the last two months of 2015 and their papers are valid.
Foreigners who request to reenter Greece will need to have:
-A valid passport of other travel document recognized by Greece.
-A confirmation they have submitted all the necessary documents for an initial issue or renewal of a residence permit
-Special certificate of legal residence
