Below are the capital controls restrictions and exceptions based on information by the finance Ministry given to the media. The Greek Finance Ministry has not issued yet the detailed “guide” through the capital controls and bank holiday, it is expected to be issued later on the day.
This short summary refers to ATM withdrawals, web banking, transactions with credit & debit cards, pre-paid cards, cards issued by foreign banks.
Pensions are exempted form any restrictions and according to latets media info, the finance ministry will announce at 4 pm Monday, which bank branches and for which hours they will be open, so that pensioners can go and withdraw their pensions. Many Greek elderly do not have debit cards. Some pension funds pay the pensions today.
KTG understands that the measures for pensioners’ access to banks refers to Greek pensioners and not to expats living in Greece, who may receive their pensions by foreign funds. KTG understands that they can withdraw their pensions in full anyway, if they are holders of cards issued by foreign banks. See also “tourists & expats/ATMs withdrawals.
Also note that when the banks will open again the cash withdrawal limit at the bank counter will be again 60 EUR per day and per account holder!
