Banks will not be opening in Greece on Monday morning.

If you didn't get your money out of Greek banks already, it's too late. Lisa Pollack of the FT tweeted two photos showing what happened when a friend tried first to withdraw €100, then went to another machine to try withdrawing €40.

From BBC coverage of the bank closure:
Greek banks are expected to stay shut until 7 July, two days after Greece's planned referendum on the terms it had been offered by international creditors for receiving fresh bailout money.

Greece's capital controls
  • A maximum of €60 (£42; $66) can be withdrawn from an account in one day

  • Overseas transfers of cash prohibited, except for vital, pre-approved commercial transactions.
