Tourists may need Health Passport to enter Greece this summer

Greece’s Minister of Tourism Harry Theocharis

Greece’s Minister of Tourism Harry Theocharis said on Tuesday that Greek authorities are mulling the introduction of a ”Health Passport” which will serve as proof that an individual is not suffering from the COVID-19 cor

The Minister said that Greece will only have a three-month tourist season this year, between July and September, but added that if the situation develops positively, then the “shoulder season” months of October and November might see an increased number of tourists in the country.

 However, the biggest challenge for the tourism-dependent country will be to determine who will be able to enter Greece and how.

 Minister Theocharis said that there is an ongoing discussion at the European Union level to determine the ways in which EU citizens will be allowed to go on vacations this year. Brussels’ aim is to provide a credible test for every individual who wishes to go on summer holidays anywhere in Europe.

 It is still unclear at this point whether non-EU nationals will be allowed to visit Greece at all this summer or not, Greek Reporter noted.
