Greece lifts Covid-19 restrictions
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.
- 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.
Still required by law to wear masks;
- Passenger ships (ferries): masks remain mandatory only in indoor areas
- Taxi: Masks are compulsory for drivers and passengers.
- Pharmacies: Compulsory masks for staff and customers remain in place.
Already since 15 March 2022, travellers visiting Greece no longer have to fill in the Passenger Locator Form (PLF).
