Greece tightens COVID-19 measures at Kakavija border

New anti-COVID measures take effect today in Greece, where restrictions are expected to be tightened. The Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs announced that from today (March 1) to March 15, it has been decided to limit the number of citizens who will cross every day the Kakavija border crossing point.

From 750 which is the number allowed so far it will go to 400 per day. Also the quarantine days for persons who will test positive will be extended from 7 to 14 days.
It is also learned that the movement schedule will be reduced allowing traffic 12 hours a day from 07:00 to 19:00. For all persons who will enter Greece, except Albanian citizens, the rapid COVID test will be undertaken even for truck drivers who have been excluded until today.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs recalled that Crossing Points in Kosovo, Macedonia and Montenegro continue to be open and Albanian citizens can travel to these countries without the need for a negative PCR test and without undergoing isolation measures.
