Travelers and other travelers should prepare to travel to and from Greece soon, following a decision to ban flights to and through the country.
The EU-brokered travel ban was put in place Tuesday and was supposed to take effect on July 1.
The ban would have imposed a 2.5% tariff on all flights departing from and to Greece for six months, and a 30% tax on the total amount of international travel.
But the EU announced on Wednesday that the ban would be suspended until the new government in Greece has been formed.
The Greek government announced it was suspending the ban for one month to allow for a “fresh and robust process” that would allow the country to find a new leadership and start a new path toward economic growth.
The suspension, the EU said, would be subject to approval by the Greek parliament.
The European Commission also said it was taking measures to limit the impact of the suspension on Greek citizens, who will still be able to travel, but will now be unable to visit relatives and other loved ones.
The suspension, which comes on top of the one month suspension for travel to the EU, has raised concerns that the suspension will not be enough to stem the flow of refugees to Greece.
The United Nations has said the suspension may not even help halt the refugee flow.
Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras has promised to work with the EU to find an economic solution for the country, which has seen its gross domestic product (GDP) fall from nearly $5 trillion in 2014 to just over $3 trillion today.
The restrictions will affect Greece’s citizens who are currently able to fly to and fro.
Those who want to travel must apply for a Greek visa and pay a fee of 5 euros ($5.45) to be issued, which will then be paid by a Greek airline.
There is also a 50-euro ($65) processing fee to get the visa, which can then be cancelled.
Travelers and their families will still have access to flights, though.
Greece has said it will suspend flights between Greece and the European Union’s Schengen zone for a few days to allow time for the new Greek government to form.
But those flights will resume as soon as the new leaders are sworn in on July 3.
