In summer 2022, the certificates and protective masks are no longer necessary.

From 1 May, travellers coming to Greece, regardless of their country of origin will no longer have to show an EU Digital Covid Certificate ( EUDCC ), recovery certificate or test to enter the country. This was decided by the government in Athens on 28 April, following a proposal by the competent health authority EODY. The government plans to reassess the situation in September 2022.

In detail

  • Travellers to Greece will be able to enter without presenting a digital Covid certificate showing whether someone has been vaccinated against Covid-19, a recovery certificate or a negative test
  • Entry to restaurants, cafes, bars, shops and entertainment venues is permitted to all. The vaccination passport, test or recovery certificate requirement does not apply
  • Restaurants, cafes, bars, shops and entertainment venues can operate at full capacity (100 per cent)
  • Wearing masks outdoors is no longer required, but the Covid Committee strongly advises the use of face masks indoors

The indoor mask requirement, on the other hand, remains. From 1 June, masks will no longer be required indoors.

Already since 15 March 2022, travellers visiting Greece no longer have to fill in the Passenger Locator Form (PLF).
