People have been watching and waiting for the important dates on when they can visit Greece. Given how well the country has done with the coronavirus pandemic and the reopening, it is really people’s big hope for a summer beach destination.
These Countries Will Have Access to Greece First
Yesterday, the Greek Prime Minister announced that Greece’s tourist season will start June 15. But, this will only be for countries’ residents where the epidemiological data is positive. Here is the list of the first 20 countries that will be allowed to visit Greece as of June 15:
- Bosnia and Herzegovina
- Czech Republic
- North Macedonia
From June 15, people from those countries can enter Greece without needing any tests beforehand. However, there will be spot tests at the airports. Until July 1, all incoming international flights will go through Athens.
What About the US and the UK?
For now, there is no hope for people coming from the US or the UK until July 15 – for now. Greece will be observing the data coming from those countries and others to let them know when they will be able to enter.
