From tomorrow evening, Greece will introduce a ban on crossing all land border crossings of the country in the interval from 23.00 in the evening to 07.00 in the morning, with the exception of the border checkpoint "Promahon" - "Kulata" on the border with Bulgaria. This was announced today by the spokesman of the cabinet as part of the measures against the coronavirus.

On Wednesday, Greece banned the Kakavya border checkpoint on the border with Albania at night, but as of tomorrow, the measure will be extended to other border crossings without Promahon.

Regarding the increased cases of coronavirus, Stelios Petsas said three major ways of transmission have been identified at this stage. The first is the frequent crossings of Greeks and permanent residents of Greece from other Balkan countries. Many of them keep coming in and out, as if nothing had happened, a government spokesman said. The second outbreak is due to the crowds of standing customers, especially in bars, but also weddings, baptisms and other gatherings. The third outbreak caused by the public transport.

According to the Bulgarian Embassy in Athens, the restrictions will affect the Makaza-Nimfea border checkpoint, which is open to Bulgarian citizens residing in Greece, as well as to travelers for important reasons.

We remind you that from July 15, 2020 Bulgarian citizens can enter the territory of Greece in the presence of a negative test for COVID 19, made no more than 72 hours before entering the country in English in a licensed laboratory and pre-filled form for travel and received QR code. Entry through the land border into the country from Bulgaria for tourism is possible only through the border checkpoint "Kulata-Promahon". / nova.bg
