All COVID-19 vaccines, as well as PCR and antibody tests, will be accepted from people travelling from Serbia to Greece, Greek Tourism Minister Harry Theoharis said on Monday in Belgrade.

“A large number of Serbs have taken the shots that are not recognised in the EU. Regardless of that, there is no increased risk of any vaccine. All shots are accepted in Greece,” said Theoharis, confirming that the tourist season in Greece would start on 14 May and that Serbian would be allowed to enter by mid-April.

The Greek minister also said that Serbian tourists would be able to enter the country using one border crossing with Bulgaria and two with North Macedonia.

Serbian Tourism Minister Tatjana Matić said both countries were trying together to minimise the damage caused by the coronavirus pandemic to facilitate the safe travel of citizens. 

Both ministers signed a joint statement in Belgrade on inter-ministerial cooperation during and after the coronavirus pandemic. (EURACTIV.rs | betabriefing.com)
