ATHENS – Who can travel to Greece?

The ministry of foreign affairs has issued a statement saying that until 15 June, the rule still applies that all visitors, regardless of nationality, even Greeks coming from abroad, must be tested.

If the result is negative (the day after) they must remain in self-isolation for seven days. If travellers are tested positive, they should be quarantined for 14 days.

The test will be mandatory for citizens coming from countries at high risk of coronavirus transmission, as assessed by the European Union’s Aviation Safety Agency.

Italy has reacted strongly to this decision and asked Athens to allow Italian travel to Greece this summer. Italian FM Luigi Di Maio is visiting Greece on 9 June with an aim to inform his counterparts about the epidemiological situation of his country. (Sarantis Michalopoulos |
