Greece to reopen Evzoni border crossing with North Macedonia July 1, awaits EU decision on entry of third-country nationals

Greece is to reopen Wednesday a total of seven land border crossings with North Macedonia, Albania, Bulgaria and Turkey, government spokesman Stelios Petsas told reporters Monday, MIA reports from Athens.

Athens, 29 June 2020 (MIA) – Greece is to reopen Wednesday a total of seven land border crossings with North Macedonia, Albania, Bulgaria and Turkey, government spokesman Stelios Petsas told reporters Monday, MIA reports from Athens.

Only the Evzoni border crossing will be operational with North Macedonia, while two border crossings will be reopened with each of the other three countries.

“Starting Wednesday, foreign ships will be allowed to dock in Greek ports. The government continues preparations to protect as much as possible the health of tourist workers, nationals and tourists,” Petsas said.

Regarding entry of third-country nationals into Greece, he told reporters that the government is awaiting EU’s decision on the matter.

However, if EU members don’t reach an agreement by Tuesday, the government spokesperson added, Greece will present its position.

Greek media have, citing EU sources, reported in the past couple of days that the EU’s flight ban for some countries, including North Macedonia will be extended, further suspending air travel from North Macedonia to Greece.
