BRITS CAN HOLIDAY IN GREECE AFTER ALL – BUT FACE QUARANTINE

Greece‘s Minister of Tourism Harry Theoharis today clarified the country’s new entry laws. These confirm that Britons will be permitted to arrive from June 15 but will be subject to stricter requirements than certain other nations. As of June 15, people from 29 countries will be allowed to enter Greece on direct flights to Athens and Thessaloniki. The list of eligible countries, with better than average Covid-19 infection records, will be expanded on July 1, but did not include the UK.

Greece has confirmed it will  accept arrivals from airports deemed high-risk by the European Union’s aviation safety agency (EASA). This includes British airports, but passengers will be subject to testing and possible quarantine.

Theoharis told ANA-MPA:

“Tourists originating from airports listed on EASA are obliged to be tested once they land in Greece and remain at a designated hotel for one day. If the test turns out negative, these visitors will then be obliged to observe a 7-day quarantine. If their sample is positive, they will remain in a 14-day quarantine and their health will be monitored.”
