Banks in Greece will remain closed over the weekend, the Athens government has announced.

They are due to re-open on Monday after being shut for at least two weeks amid the country’s proposed €86 billion bailout process in return for tough austerity measures.

Visitors to Greece can continue to withdraw cash via ATMs as normal, up to the daily limit imposed by the Greek banking system of around €600.

The system for paying with debit and credit cards for shopping continues to function.

However, the Greek government continues to limit withdrawals using cards issued by Greek banks to €60 per day, according to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

The FCO yesterday withdrew out of date information on planned strikes and demonstrations from its travel advice.
