Information for visitors:
Passengers do not have to undergo the Covid-19 test before travelling, but random testing for Covid-19 will be taking place in Greece. The 14 days of quarantine, which are still compulsory for travelers from abroad right now, will not be taking place.
The Ministry of Tourism will lease a tourist accommodation in every tourist area, which will operate as a “quarantine hotel”, where infected tourists will be hosted.
