The ESTIA programme offers housing, psychosocial support and interpretation services to those eligible. To enter the programme, the applicant is required to have submitted an asylum request to the Asylum Office, and for that request to be under consideration – therefore before the issuance of the final decision, whether positive or negative. To submit an entry application to the programme, the applicant must contact the Migrant Integration Center (Municipality of Heraklion), or Heraklion Development Agency (the body responsible for the implementation of ESTIA). The entry application is then forwarded to the Hellenic Ministry of Migration and Asylum, in order to be processed.
