National list of undesirable foreigners (EKANA)

The Lawyer Mrs. Kasatkina-Kouskou Svetlana, provides services related to the deletion of personal data from the National List of undesirable foreigners as well as information on the registration of data in the List above.

The provisions of Law 4251/2014 of the Ministry of Public Order provides rules regarding the control of undesirable foreigners and their inclusion in the National List of the Greek Territory. In practice, there are two types of list : the National, in which the National List of undesirable foreigner is included and the European List of undesirable persons of the Schengen Information System (SIS). As mentioned above, the National List s created and controlled by the Ministry of Public Order in Greece.

An unwanted foreign is included to the List because of the need for measures and/ or the implementation of measures for the expulsion of a foreigner in order to prevent the entry or re-entry of a person who has been excluded from the country.

The criteria for the entry and the removal of foreigners who have entered the National List are determined by joint decision of the Ministries of Interior, Public Administration and Decentralization, Justice and Public Order.

According to the greek legislation, the Greek National List of undesirable foreigners, includes the following categories:
•    Foreigners deported after judicial or administrative decision of the country.
•    Foreigners whose presence in Greek territory is a threat to national or public security or public order. One such threat is the case that there is evidence against a foreigner that he committed a serious crime or there is evidence that the foreigner is driven to commit such an act.
•    Foreigners who do not comply with the order provided for public health, as defined in provisions of Law 4251/2014.

However, the main problem concerning the foreign nationals, in case of their inclusion in the National List is their inclusion also in the list of undesirable persons of the Schengen Information System (SIS).
