After the closure of border checkpoints to neighbouring countries, a 15-kilometre line of trucks, buses and cars formed at the Kulata-Promachonas border crossing between Bulgaria and Greece.

According to border police data, traffic towards Greece has increased significantly within the space of only two hours. Greece is not allowing cars or buses into the country at its border with North Macedonia, and the traffic has most probably shifted across Bulgaria. This means that the stream of tourists towards Greece from Serbia, North Macedonia, Romania and Bulgaria is now heading, in full, towards Kulata-Promachonas border checkpoint.
