Greece’s Civil Aviation Authority announced that the quarantine requirement has been lifted for travelers arriving in the country from seven more countries, provided that they submit vaccination proof or a negative test result of COVID-19 carried out at least 72 hours before entering the country.
The countries that will be allowed to enter Greece without having to follow quarantine restrictions include Australia, New Zealand, South Korea, Russia, Rwanda, Singapore and Thailand.
The lifting of the quarantine requirement was also announced two weeks ago for citizens of the EU and several non-EU countries, including the United States, United Kingdom, Serbia, Israel and United Arab Emirates.
All people coming from these nations will not be required to quarantine as long as they prove that they have received the COVID-19 vaccine or show a negative PCR test result carried out not more than 72 hours prior to their entry into Greece.
The PCR test is also required for children over the age of five who are traveling together with their families.
The move comes as the latest phase as Greece prepares for its full opening to the world on May 14.
