After April 19, Greece will continue to receive Russian tourists in the current mode. The Minister of Tourism of Greece Haris Theocharis told about this in an interview with Izvestia.

“At the moment, up to 4 thousand Russians a week can come to the country. They need to go into quarantine upon arrival. The question of when we will be able to remove these restrictions or change the quarantine parameters is still open, the minister said. “The most optimal would be to say that a limited number of Russians can come with further quarantine.”

He specified that the opening date of the country for foreign tourists is May 14. Then people will be able to come with both a vaccination certificate and a negative PCR test.

“Tests will also be carried out at airports, those who test positive will go into isolation so that the rest of the people – both our citizens and our friends from Russia – are safe,” said Haris Theocharis.

Earlier, the media reported that Greece will be ready to accept Russians without quarantine. To do this, they need to either be vaccinated or have a negative COVID test with them.
