Greece is undoubtedly one of the most popular summer destinations. Are you thinking of spending your summer vacation in Greece but you’re not quite sure about the current covid-19 restrictions? The good news is that you can now organize your trip without worrying because the Greek government has decided to abolish all travel restrictions thus all travelers no longer need to display a valid certificate of vaccination or recovery or a negative Covid test result (PCR or Rapid Antigen Test) to access Greece. In addition, since 15 March 2022, passengers visiting Greece are no longer obligated to complete the Passenger Locator Form (PLF). Only an optional simplified version of PLF is now available to be filled out.
Not only have Greek authorities officially announced the free entrance of travelers regardless of their country of origin but also they have decided to lift almost all of the domestic Covid-19 measures. Taking the current epidemiological situation of the country into consideration, Greek Health Committee has assessed that there is no necessity to establish mandatory measures. In fact, according to Worlds Health Organization (WHO) Greece reports 3,608 new infection cases on average each day, thereby covid-19 cases seem to rapidly decrease. Provided that covid-19 cases have now dropped to very low levels and the vaccination rates are high there is no cause for concern about the spreading of the disease. However, there are a few remaining measures related to the use of masks. Since 1.06.2022 face mask is now mandatory only in Health Care Facilities such as hospitals and health centers, local public transportation (metros, busses, tram etc), pharmacies, taxis and the interior of ships. Also, you don’t have to show any covid-19 related certificates to enter entertainment facilities such as restaurants, bars, clubs, and cafeterias nor to wear a face mask while being in such places. With all the above mentioned, Greek authorities are strongly encouraging visitors to comply with the rules, avoid overcrowded areas, and be thoughtful about the usage of masks and antiseptic solutions.
It is more than clear that you can already start to organize your trip without worrying about covid-19 restrictions. You will definitely enjoy a carefree, unique, and unforgettable summer holiday experience in Greece, having in mind to keep yourselves and other people safe.
