Greece has introduced further rules for foreign seasonal workers due to the increasing number of COVID-19 cases in the Balkans. Foreign agricultural workers who leave the country before August 4 will not be able to return until further notice, Greek government spokesman Stelios Petsas explained.
Seasonal workers had been allowed to reside in the country in early May with a special three-month license.
Last year, more than 10,000 seasonal workers were employed in the Greek agricultural sector, mainly from Bulgaria, Albania and North Macedonia.
