Greece gets going

Regular ferry services to the Greek Islands have started, while restaurants and bars are reopening, as the country continues efforts to salvage its vital tourism season.

Visitors to Greece are currently required to self-isolate for two weeks, but the country’s low infection rate has encouraged its Government to welcome overseas tourists again from 15 June. Direct flights to the islands have been given permission to resume from 1 July.

Foreign arrivals will no longer be required to self-isolate but they will be subject to Covid-19 testing. Further details will be announced in the coming weeks. Distancing regulations and passenger limits have been imposed both on ferries and at restaurants.

Whether Britons will be among the first tourists to return depends on how long the UK Government retains its own 14-day quarantine policy, due to come into force on 8 June, or whether it offers an exemption or ‘air bridge’ to those arriving from Greece.
