Anyone travelling to Greece with a vaccine will no longer have to show a negative corona test from Monday. On television, Greek Health Minister Thanos Plevris said that the EU vaccination certificate is sufficient.
Unvaccinated people still need a negative test to enter. This can be a PCR residue that must not be older than 72 hours or a negative antigen test taken less than 24 hours earlier.
Greece introduced a requirement in December that vaccinated travellers must also have tested negative to slow down the spread of corona infections. However, the country came under criticism from other EU member states.
Meanwhile, Greece is preparing for the tourist season, which is declared open on March 1. The aim is to equal the record turnover of 2019 this year. Then tourists brought in more than 18 billion euros.
