Published on : Wednesday, April 7, 2021

On Tuesday, Greece Tourism Minister Haris Theocharis confirmed in the Parliament that Greek tourism will open on May 14 keeping complete safety in their priority list.

Theocharis said that the Greek plan comprises five lines of defense to receive foreign tourists without putting them or local residents in danger: These lines of defense comprise tourists’ vaccination or negative test certificates, the EVA random checking system at borders and airports, quarantine hotels for isolation of any visitor carrying the virus, vaccination of tourism professionals – which will start immediately after the inoculation of most vulnerable citizens, and strict observance of health protocols.

Theocharis stressed that rules applying to Greek citizens would apply in their entirety, without exception, to visitors from abroad.

“We make no discrimination,” Theocharis said.

The minister also stated that there is no such thing as a “Covid-free” island, and there is blanket vaccination of residents on smaller islands.

“The whole country is safe,” the minister concluded.
