It seems that Greece is slowly starting to lift the restrictions that were imposed on everyone coming to its territory. For many months, everyone who entered Greece, regardless of the results of the mandatory PCR test, had to undergo a 7-day quarantine.
According to yet unconfirmed reports published on one of the websites, from next Monday, citizens of the European Union member states, the United States, Great Britain, Serbia and the United Arab Emirates will be able to enter Greece without having to undergo this mandatory 7-day quarantine. However, the condition to bypass these restrictions is to have a vaccination certificate or a negative PCR test result 72 hours before the trip. It is worth recalling that a little earlier this quarantine was lifted for vaccinated Israeli citizens.
Citing a Greek government official, the Reuters news agency said that the only airports available to travelers from these countries so far will be Athens and Thessaloniki , as well as in Crete (Heraklion and Chania), Rhodes, Kos, Mykonos, Santorini and Corfu .
The ambassador of Serbia also confirmed that his country's citizens will be able to travel to Greece by land from next Monday using the Promahonas and Nymfeas crossings.
No further details are known about lifting quarantine restrictions and other restrictions at this time. Official announcements are expected in the coming days. Those who enter Greece are subject to the rest of the restrictions that are currently in force in Greece, we just remind you that in Greece restaurants and cafes are still closed, it is forbidden to travel between prefectures and there is still a curfew at night.
The loosening of these provisions will certainly benefit those who are going to Greece to work in the near future. Although the remaining entry restrictions remain, it is the first step towards opening the country to tourism.
