The number of migrants and refugees entering Europe is expected to pass one million by 22 December, the International Organisation for Migration has said.
The organisation estimates that so far in 2015, 991,000 migrants and refugees have crossed European borders, seeking a better life or fleeing from conflict.
The flow of people into Greece "remains robust and dangerous" at around 4,300 daily, the group also said.
Since 16 October, there have been 422 deaths at sea, an average of seven a day, according to the group.
David Cameron is holding talks with the European Commission President to discuss reforms he is seeking for Britain's membership of the EU ahead of the in/ out referendum.
On Wednesday, President Jean-Claude Juncker said that they had so far not made "huge progress", telling MEPs that "it takes two to tango" and "our British friends have to dance".
Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and French President Francois Hollande agreed that the Greek bailout could and should be agreed after August 15, the Greek PM's office said.
The Greek government will decide next week when the Athens stock exchange will reopen, after a four-week break required when capital controls were imposed last month, an official said on Thursday.
Athex has been closed since 29 June, when Greece shut its banks and imposed capital controls to ward of a collapse of its banking system after the country rejected a cash-for-reforms deal in its referendum.
The banks reopened on Monday after the country reluctantly struck a deal to receive emergency ECB funding and a bridge loan from the EU.
The official also confirmed that talks with Greece's international creditors on a third bailout would start in Athens on Friday and that the government wants the talks to be concluded by late August.
Greek MPs have overwhelmingly approved a new batch of reforms demanded by the country's international creditors in return for a third multibillion-euro bailout.
The vote followed a whirlwind debate that ended at 4am local time.
Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras once again suffered a revolt in his own radical left party, but had no trouble passing the draft legislation with the backing of pro-European opposition parties.
The reforms were the final prerequisite before Greece can start negotiations with creditors on a third bailout worth around 85 billion euro (£59.5 billion).
Government spokeswoman Olga Gerovasili conceded there is a clear rift within Syriza, but would not say whether rebels would be expelled.
"From this point on, party procedures will be followed in order to deal with the problem," she said after the vote.
The Greek parliament will vote today on a second set of reforms needed to secure its bailout deal.
If MPs approve the financial and judicial reforms, Greece will be able to forge ahead with negotiations for an €86 billion bailout from its creditors.
Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras rallied his Syriza colleagues earlier this week , saying the Greek people had "pinned their hopes" on staying in the euro.
The vote is expected to pass with the support of opposition parties.
Greece has started the procedure to pay €6.25 billion to European Central Bank and the IMF, according to officials.
