GREECE RE-OPENING FOR VISITORS, THIS IS WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
If you miss travelling as much as we do, you may be happy to hear that the Minister of Greek Tourism has just announced that Greece will most likely re-open for visitors on the 14th of May.
The Greek islands, the Greek food, the people.. on a whole, we miss Greece! Thankfully, the country wasn’t struck as badly with the Covid-19 virus in comparison to other European countries, but all things considered, it is important that you know a few things before heading to Greece. Below we have listed the most important facts, that have just been shared by the Visit Greece tourism board.
This is what you need to know about Greece re-opening
- Greece will open to the following travellers: travellers who have been vaccinated and travellers who have a recent negative Covid-19 test.
- Travellers will also be randomly tested upon arrival, just like last year. However, Greece now offers quick-tests this travel season in comparison with last season. This means that travellers do not have to go in quarantine and wait for the results.
- The costs for any hospitalisation or a stay in a corona hotel (due to a positive result) will also be covered by the Greek government this travel season. Travellers do not have to be afraid of unforeseen costs during their stay.
Various measures are being taken to ensure the safety of all people. If needed, special quarantine areas will also be selected per region. In addition, if needed, a Greek transfer to a health post is available for travellers.
In either case, this is good news for Greece and those who love to explore this amazing country.
