March 10. On Tuesday, Greece’s Tourism Minister Harry Theocharis revealed that travel will be possible for all tourists this summer, irrespective of their country of residence.
“Greece is ready with a complete protocol for summer 2021,” Theocharis said. “Tourists will be welcome if before travel they are either vaccinated, or have antibodies, or test negative. All tourists will be subject to random testing.”
Greece is an incredibly popular destination for Americans. So much so that Emirates recently announced it would be reinstating its route connecting New York with the Greek capital Athens. From there, it’s only a short flight or ferry ride before arriving on idyllic islands such as Santorini.
In conjunction with entry regulations for vaccinated tourists, a series of vaccine or digital health passports have come into development. It is hoped this will make for a more streamlined and secure journey for travelers who will be able to use the technology to upload documentation pertaining to COVID-19 vaccination or negative test result information.
