According to a Ministerial Decision, published in the Government Gazette on 27/12/2021, the residence permits and the certificates of submission (blue certificates) that have been extended and expired until 31/12/2021, get a new extension until March 31, 2022. This provision applies to permits and blue certificates with expiration date from 01/01/2020 until 31/12/2021.

* The residence permits expiring from 01/01/2022 onwards have not been extended. Therefore they must be renewed on time before the expiration date.

*The renewal process for residence permits that have expired or are about to expire is now done only online via the platform of the Ministry of Immigration and Asylum. You must submit an application for renewal on the platform in the respective category, with the necessary supporting documents in pdf files before your permit expires.
