Today, the Ministry of Migration & Asylum announced that the implementation process where asylum seekers and immigrants will be issued with a Temporary Number of Insurance and Healthcare for Foreigners (PAAYPA/ΠΑΑΥΠΑ) that will be completed by mid-April.
The numbers are issued automatically together with their asylum seeker’s card by the Asylum Service, and all asylum seekers will be able to access their numbers via the AMKA website: https://www.amka.gr/AMKAGR/ after mid-April.
A negative asylum decision will deactivate the number, and a positive asylum decision the number will be changed to a full AMKA social security number.
