Greece with stricter rules for Bulgarian seasonal workers

Greece has introduced stricter rules for foreign seasonal workers due to the increasing number of Covid-19 cases in the Balkans. 

“Land workers that exit the country before Aug. 4 will not be able to return until further notice,” government spokesman Stelios Petsas told a news briefing.

Seasonal workers had been allowed to reside in the country in early May with a special three-month license. 

Petsas added that land entry to Greece will be allowed only via six northern border crossings to better control imported COVID-19 cases.

Last year, more than 10,000 seasonal workers were employed in Greece’s agricultural sector, mainly from Albania, Bulgaria and North Macedonia.
