Greece reopens to international travelers on May 14th

Greece reopens to international travel on May 14. Just in time for Summer 2021. This is great news for yacht charter guests. Since last year was such a disappointment travel-wise, travelers are eager to visit the Mediterranean. ALL4YACHTING and ALL4YACHTCHARTER are now accepting booking requests.

Travelers from the following countries qualify for exemption from mandatory quarantine: All EU member states and the members of the border-free Schengen area, the United States, the United Kingdom, the United Arab Emirates, Serbia, Israel, Australia, New Zealand, South Korea, Thailand, Rwanda, Russia and Singapore, considering that they have been fully vaccinated or present a negative PCR test for Covid-19.

On April 6, 2021 the Greek tourism minister Haris Theocharis announced these guidelines as Greece reopens for international travel:

  • A certificate of complete vaccination (both doses) against the coronavirus at least 14 days prior to arrival
  • OR recovered after being infected by COVID-19
  • OR a negative test 72 hours prior to their departure from their countries.
  • Tourists, upon arrival, might also be subjected to random Covid-19 diagnostic rapid tests, in addition to the above.
  • Tourists will be required to wear a mask or to keep a safe distance in public areas, buses, tours, and so on, during their stay in Greece.
  • Finally, all the Greek and non-Greek workers in all tourism sectors will be vaccinated in priority, immediately after the elderly and high-risk citizens.

Of course, as time goes by these guidelines are subject to change. The yacht charter team at ALL4YACHTING and ALL4YACHTCHARTER will be keeping up to date. Feel free to contact us directly if you have any questions about international travel for summer 2021.
