“Starting next week, we will gradually ease restrictions before the opening on May 14,” the aforementioned ministerial official, who requested anonymity, told Reuters. He added that citizens of the European Union, as well as several other countries, namely Great Britain, Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Serbia, will be able to travel to Greece through nine airports or two land border crossings.
You will be able to travel to Athens, Thessaloniki, the Greek islands of Crete, Rhodes, Corfu, Mykonos, Santorini or Kos. Visitors from these countries will not have to be quarantined. It is sufficient to prove them with a certificate of vaccination with two doses of the vaccine or a negative PCR test that is no more than 72 hours old.
In addition to this exception, Greece must continue to adhere to its original plan, which foresees a public opening in mid-May. Although the use of a single vaccination passport was initially envisioned, according to a previous statement by Greek Tourism Minister Haris Theoharis, entry into the country would be possible not only with a vaccination certificate, but also with a negative test.
Roads complicate work
Germany and the UK in particular are the key to Greece. However, according to the Daily Mail, the British will not go out anyway until at least mid-May due to local government restrictions.
After all, the Czechs cannot avoid the restrictions either, because the vast majority of Europe is marked in red as being too dangerous at a traffic light issued by the State Department. This means, among other things, a test before the return flight to the Czech Republic or a mandatory five-day isolation after the return.
