In Greece, starting May 1st, visitors will no longer need to provide proof of a vaccine, recovery from Covid, or a test upon entry, regardless of vaccination status.

Likewise, tourists will no longer need a Covid vaccination certificate in order to enter bars, restaurants, and other attractions. By June, it is also expected that face mask rules will be relaxed.

Greece also stopped requiring Passenger Locator Forms last month, so that Brits can visit the country with less difficulty.

In September, the lifting of these measures will be re-evaluated after the peak tourist season, so it may be reinstituted if cases spike.

The Greek health minister Thanos Plevris stated in a statement that “based on the epidemiological data and the suggestions of experts, we announced a roadmap for de-escalating measures against the Covid-19 pandemic. “All measures will be evaluated on September 1st based on the severity of the pandemic.”

As of this summer, Greece is the first country to eliminate all Covid requirements for tourists. Other popular destinations require proof of Covid vaccination status and recovery.
