Interior Minister Nikos Nouris said there has been a drastic reduction of asylum applications by foreign students since October, when the government adopted stricter criteria for registration of third-country nationals to private colleges.

He also noted that the Ministry has also proceeded with 831 cancellations of residence permits that were linked to sham marriages.
