The Greek government has come up with a final decision that only the border checkpoint at Kulata-Promachonas will remain open to tourists travelling from Bulgaria to Greece. The measure will take effect on Monday (July 6), government spokesman Stelios Petsas said. 
The Makaza border crossing between Bulgaria and Greece will be closed.
Pre-filled electronic declarations with QR code will be required from all incoming foreigners without exception. 
All Balkan land traffic of tourists to Greece will pass through Kulata-Promachonas because no foreigners will be allowed into Greece via its borders with Albania, Turkey and North Macedonia.
