Statistical data from the Greek Asylum Service covering the period 7 June 2013 to 31 October 2017, with information on asylum applications and decisions divided by age, gender, countries of origin, region (in Greece) of application; data from the Greek Dublin Unit covering the same period showing transfers of asylum-seekers to and from Greece under the Dublin system; and data from the Greek Asylum Service on relocations from Greece to other EU Member States under the EU's relocation scheme up to 19 November 2017.

Statistical Data of the Greek Asylum Service - Relocation Procedures (up to 19.11.2017) (pdf): 24,887 people relocated in total.

The relocation scheme formally ended on 26 September 2017 although asylum-seekers who arrived in Greece and were fingerprinted before that date are still eligible to apply. It was initially foreseen that over 63,000 people would be relocated from Greece but the EU and Member States revised the numbers downwards after realising that the rules on eligibility meant there were fewer people in Greece who could make use of the scheme. This decision of course did nothing for the thousands of people who remain stranded in Greece.
