Update on Reception Identification Centers on the Greek islands (Lesvos, Samos and Chios)
Movement restrictions in camps on the islands
The Greek Government applies control of movement in almost all the camps. This means that If you need to leave the camp for your basic needs, such as buying groceries or going to the pharmacy, police will control your movement.
There are regular updates on the regulations so it is better to ask the admin of the camp about these movement rules.
