Greece Opens 2021 Tourist Season mid May

Greece opens tourism season mid may 2021

Heliades Villas have always been dedicated to providing exemplary service ensuring luxury, comfort , and safety to our guests.  This is the goal that mandates our thoughts and actions during these times of uncertainty due to COVID-19.

Last week Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis  confirmed that Greece will open this year for tourists as of mid-May and said he expects travel to pick up significantly during the summer.

Greece will do everything in its power to make sure that visitors come to Greece in the safest way. Our country has put all the necessary protocols in place to ensure that  our country’s visitors will get the full Greek experience without any compromise.  And as the prime minister quoted: “ If we did it last year, we will certainly do it much better this year now that we have additional tools at our disposal,”

As of May 17th all travellers to Greece are just required either holding a negative molecular Covid-19 test or a vaccination certificate (Digital Green Certificate) when entering the country.

What is the Digital Green Certificate?

Α digital green certificate will significantly facilitate travel, and is nothing more than a vaccination certificate, the proof that a person has been vaccinated against Covid-19, received a negative test result or recovered from the coronavirus.

With the vaccination certificate visitors will be allowed to enter Greece without any additional testing at the borders.

The EU has clarified that the Digital Green Certificate is intended to launch as a temporary measure to facilitate travel during the coronavirus pandemic. It is planned to be suspended once the World Health Organization (WHO) declares the end of the Covid-19 international health emergency.

Heliades Villas are monitoring the information that becomes available about Covid-19 and are closely adhering to guidance from the major official sources.
