Greek hoteliers with initiative for ease of access for tourists through Bulgaria

Greek hoteliers offer the government special measures to ensure ease of access to tourists through border crossings from Bulgaria.
Within days, the government will adopt a final framework for ferry travel in strict distance observance, BNR reported.

The problems in aviation draw the attention of Greek hoteliers to tourists who can enter Greece through the land border with Bulgaria and North Macedonia. A letter to the government insisted on reaching a diplomatic agreement on more intensive passage of tourists by road transport.

A tourist corridor could be introduced at the border crossings with Bulgaria, which are likely to be used not only by the Balkan countries, according to the proposal of the hoteliers.

They insist that those who wish to rest in Greece undergo a coronavirus test in the countries where they leave, and in Greece they guarantee full compliance with health prescriptions.

At the same time, the Greek government is actively working on special prescriptions for ferry transport, which will be loaded with limited air connections.

Ferries will run with half of the possible passengers and with restrictions on contact between them during travel.
