After much speculation, Greece has confirmed it will be lifting its entry restrictions this weekend, just in time for warmer weather.
The rule changes mean that as of May 1, travelers will be able to visit the popular holiday destination without needing to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a recovery certificate. However, indoor mask-wearing is set to remain in place until June 1.
Additional measures due to change include increasing capacity to 100% for certain venues and reducing the need for unvaccinated workers to take regular COVID-19 rapid tests to just once per week — with the exception of those that work in health care or with the elderly.
The news follows growing confusion after Greek health minister Thanos Plevris announced that the country would be able “to proceed with the suspension of the protection measures put in place from May 1” earlier this month.
