Greece announced on Wednesday 13 April that epidemiological restrictions such as wearing masks indoors and Covid-19 certificates will be lifted for the duration of the summer tourism period and authorities will consider bringing them back in September.

The main travel trends for 2022

The summer tourist season in Greece usually starts after Orthodox Easter, which this year falls on April 24th. Greece is expecting a large number of visitors this year, with officials forecasting revenues to hit 80% of 2019 levels, a record year before the pandemic sent trips to record levels.

From May 1 to August 31, the public will no longer be required to show proof of coronavirus vaccination or illness to enter indoor or open spaces such as restaurants, and authorities are also considering removing the requirement to show proof of an EU digital Covid-19 certificate to enter the country. All measures will be re-evaluated in September.
