HOLIDAYS are back in fashion for sun-seeking Brits this summer – although Covid rules are still in place in some holiday hotspots.
Despite the fact that the UK travel rules have expired, anyone flying to Greece must abide by their rules.
Here we go through all the measures still in place in Greece – from masks to vaccination requirements…
Current travel regulations
Britons arriving in Greece who are not fully vaccinated and are five years of age or older must have a negative antigen test 24 hours before flight or a PCR test 72 hours before flight.
A certificate of recovery from Covid will also be accepted.
However, if you are fully vaccinated, you can visit Greece without having to take a Covid test before you travel.
And no traveler is now required to fill out a passenger locator form.
According to the UK Foreign Office: “The wearing of a mask in all indoor public spaces in all areas of Greece is mandatory.
“In certain areas, such as supermarkets and pharmacies and on public transport, you must wear either double masks (at least one of which should be surgical) or an N95/FFP2 mask.”
In Greece, everyone must show proof of vaccination to enter indoor places such as shops, restaurants and museums.
And the UK Foreign Office says if you are not fully or partially vaccinated you will not be able to enter nightclubs, indoor restaurants, theatres, cinemas, museums, exhibitions, conferences, gyms and stadiums.
If you are not vaccinated you can still visit outdoor shops and restaurants if you have proof of a negative Covid test taken within 48 hours of entry.
