Greece plans to reopen borders this spring

The Greek minister of tourism, Harris Theoharis, has announced that they expect to reopen Greek borders to tourism between April and May.

The plan is to reopen borders to international travel by May 14th, if the development of the pandemic allows it.

Even before that, an initial opening to EU countries and to other countries where vaccinations are in an advanced stage, like Israel, is being considered for early April, again with positive health data.

Tourists will be able to enter the country if they have been vaccinated, if they have antibodies or if they have a recent negative Covid test. There will be sample checks, but thanks to rapid tests there will be no need for long self-isolation on arrival. For tourists found positive on arrival, they will be transferred to designated facilities without any private expense.
