Key points:Immigration Minister Peter Piot has previously said that Australia will be welcoming “anyone who has applied for a visa”Mr Dutton has previously suggested people in Australia would be welcome in GreeceAsylum seekers in Greece wait to board a flight from Athens to RomeThe Government is sending letters to Greece’s Immigration Minister and Minister for Immigration Peter Dutts offices asking them to allow people to enter Australia, in an attempt to “get a grip” on the situation.
“There will be people in this country who have applied for visas and have been turned away,” Minister Piot told reporters in Sydney on Thursday.
“We’re going to have to have a robust policy in the coming days to deal with this, to try to get a grip on the asylum seekers in the country.”
Greece’s Immigration Department has been flooded with applications for asylum seekers who arrived from Greece since March, but many of them have since been turned back by the Greek authorities.
Mr Piot said the Government was asking the Greek government to allow “anybody who has been granted asylum in Greece, who has lived in Greece for some time and who has a visa to come to Australia”.
“We are asking the people who have come to Greece, including the Greek community, and who have been granted a visa and have now been turned down by the government to come forward and contact us,” he said.
“That’s what we are trying to do.”
In a statement on Friday, Minister Dutos office said it was a matter for the Greek Government.
“The Australian Government will be working closely with the Greek immigration service to make sure that every request is considered as it relates to our nation’s asylum seekers,” it said.’
We’ve been waiting for this’Since the beginning of the year, thousands of asylum seekers have been arriving in Greece by boat from neighbouring Turkey.
Greeks have been trying to cross the Mediterranean Sea to Europe since the beginning, but thousands of migrants have drowned attempting to cross into Europe.
Giannis Zografos, a Greek member of parliament, said the boat arrivals were an “enormous burden” on Greece.
“They’ve been in Greece since February, they’re now waiting for the arrival of boats,” Mr Zogris told ABC radio on Thursday night.
“In Greece, we have been waiting a long time for this.
We’ve been fighting this since the first day that Greece entered the Schengen zone.”
Mr Zogras also said that many asylum seekers from Syria and Afghanistan were coming to Greece from Turkey, while others from Libya were also arriving in Greek waters.
“What we’re seeing now is a humanitarian crisis in our country.”
People are trying desperately to get to the Mediterranean, but the Greek state, the state that we have to support, is unable to do so,” he told Radio New Zealand.’
If we don’t get our boats, they will come to us’Since January, more than 600 people have been rescued from the sea off Greece by Greek coastguard vessels, but so far only four have been brought to safety.”
I’m hoping we don.””
We’re hoping that, if we don.t get our boat, they’ll come to our country and we’ll support them and get them on to a boat.”
I’m hoping we don.
“Mr Dutroos has previously expressed his frustration at the delays, telling reporters that people should “get their boats and get on a boat”.”
The Greek government is not doing their job, it is not delivering the goods,” he warned.
Mr Dutoos said he would not hesitate to act if he was not allowed to see his boat.
He said he believed it was “very clear” that the Greek migrants were fleeing war and poverty in Syria and Iraq, and that they would “come to Australia and apply for asylum”.”
I think we have got to be prepared for them, and I don’t want to see a lot of Greek people in the boat, but we’re going through very difficult times,” he added.”
If we can’t get a boat, then we’re not going to help them.
We’re going after them as we have the past few years.
“Mr Piois said he hoped the letter would “help to get Greece’s boat people on a safe and orderly journey to Australia”, but added he was “not at all optimistic” about it.”
It’s a very difficult situation for all of us, not just us in Greece,” he insisted.”
But we have a responsibility to the Greek people to ensure that they are being supported, to help our people get to Australia, and to ensure we
