Greece has confirmed that Covid 19 vaccination and recovery certificates will not be required from May 1 through to the end of September, as part of the Greek governments’ efforts to ease restrictions ahead of the peak summer season.

Greek Health Minister Thanos Plevris, made the announcement to Greek media on Tuesday, April 12, revealing that the suspension of measures will take place from May 1st, however, he quickly pointed out that the vaccination certificate will be “suspended not abolished” and will once again be reviewed in September.

This means travelling throughout Greece and entering public indoor and outdoor spaces from May 1st will be made easier for both local and international visitors who are both vaccinated and unvaccinated- as they will not need to present a vaccination or recovery certificate to enter public indoor and outdoor spaces.

This comes as a relief to all those in the travel and hospitality industry, as tourism numbers are expected to possibly reach 2019, pre-pandemic levels.

Full details about the new measures that will be in place from May through to September will be announced by the Health Minister in the coming days.
