Allocations of asylum-seekers from Italy and Greece

The Council Decision of 22 September establishes a temporary and exceptional mechanism for 120 000 persons in clear need of international protection to be relocated from Italy and Greece to other Member States over the coming two years.
The decision stipulates that 66 000 asylum-seekers will be relocated from Italy (15 600) and Greece (50 400) to other Member States, on the basis of a mandatory distribution scheme. After a year, a further 54 000 asylum-seekers (the number that the Commission initially proposed be relocated from Hungary) will be relocated from Italy and Greece, or from other Member States coming under migratory pressure, if necessary.
