On 1 May Greece scrapped all entry requirements for UK travellers. Here's what you need to know about Greece's current travel rules
With hundreds of to explore, from Kefalonia to Crete, Greece is a popular holiday destination among UK holidaymakers. Travellers from the UK are no longer required to show proof of vaccination, a negative test or a certificate of recent recovery, regardless of vaccination status, making it a hassle-free holiday destination. There's also no need to complete a passenger locator form.
Be aware that you might be asked to take a state-provided Covid test when you land in Greece as part of spot checks being carried out by the authorities. Unless you are medically exempt, this test is mandatory if you are asked to do it, and refusal could result in you being denied entry into the country.
If you do test positive, you (and the people you are travelling with) will need to either stay in a government funded quarantine hotel or in your own hotel (if it's four or five stars and offers the necessary Covid-19 service) for at least five days. If you show no symptoms, or your symptoms begin to improve within five days, you can end your quarantine, but on the condition that you wear either an FFP2/N95 mask or double mask (one of which should be surgical) at all times in public for the following five days.
The above rules all apply for travel to the Greek islands. The government has advised that municipalities and local authorities have the power to tighten or loosen restrictions depending on the Covid-19 infection rate in that area. Best thing to do is to check the latest rules for the area you're travelling to before you go.
