The Greek government has now said it will now allow British tourists into the country – despite having previously banned visitors from the UK in what is being described as a major ‘U-Turn.’
THE holiday hotspot is opening up to tourists again on June 15, albeit with strict quarantine measures in place.
Greek authorities have said they will conduct coronavirus tests on visitors arriving from airports deemed high-risk by the European Union’s aviation safety agency EASA when it opens its airports.
EASA regularly updates a list of airports located in affected areas with a high risk of transmission of the Covid-19 infection – including 13 in the United Kingdom. “If you originate from an airport on the EASA affected area list, then you will be tested upon arrival,” said the ministry of foreign affairs, adding that movement restrictions will also apply.
“If the test is negative, then the passenger self-quarantines for seven days. If the test is positive, the passenger is quarantined under supervision for 14 days.”
