MORE Covid regulations have been abolished across Greece, which is a welcome relief for British tourists heading to the country this summer.
For public events and flights, face masks will not be required starting next month, according to the health officials of the country.
The change in the law, which went into effect on June 1, was announced by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC).
However, airlines have been instructed to encourage customers to continue wearing masks on those flights from or to areas where masks are still needed on public transportation.
It is still compulsory to wear masks when visiting a nursing home or hospital, riding public transportation such as the metro, bus, , or tram, according to Health Minister Thanos Plevris.
He went on to say that in the next week, a panel of specialists will make an announcement about ferry passengers.
As of the beginning of March, the Greek government abolished a rule that required people to wear masks in nightclubs, taverns, and restaurants.
The removal of Passenger Locator Forms by Greece in the last month made travelling to the nation easier for Britons.
Additionally, vaccination proofs or a clean Covid test is no longer required for British citizens to visit Greece as of 1st May.
To enter the country, tourists entering from the United Kingdom, the United States, or other EU countries will no longer be required to present a vaccination certificate, proof of a negative test, or a recovery certificate, as per the Greek government’s announcement on its website on the 1st of May.
