It’s official. Greece is fully reopening for summer 2022.
It was announced on Monday that Greece will become the 30th nation to remove Covid-related entry requirements for all travelers, including those from the US, Canada, and the UK. The new rules are scheduled to go into effect on May 2, 2022, according to local reports released earlier this week.
All External And Internal Restrictions To Be Temporarily Scrapped From May 2, 2022
If you don’t have a vaccination certificate, you won’t have to worry about any internal restrictions throughout Greece come summer. On top of removing all travel restrictions for international arrivals, Greece will also be scrapping all internal vaccine passport requirements from May 2nd until September.
Just last week, officials in Greece indicated that they would be making it easier for fully vaccinated travelers from the US to visit the Republic this summer, but Monday’s announcement takes things one step further.
Current Travel Rules For Greece Will Still Apply Until May 1st
Currently, fully vaccinated travelers to Greece have to show proof of vaccination in order to enter Greece test-free. This will allow them to cross the land or air border as well as travel internally throughout the Republic. The testing requirement for fully vaccinated US and Canadian travelers was removed in February of this year.
