In Greece, restrictions on travelers from Italy will only apply to arrivals from Emilia-Romagna, Lombardy, Piedmont and Veneto


On Sunday, the Greek government explained in more detail the measures that will regulate access to the country from abroad in the coming month and which were announced on Friday. Two days ago the government said that from June 15 it would be possible to visit Greece for people from 29 countries, including Italy. In fact, it is possible to go to Greece from abroad from all countries with air connections to the airports of Athens and Thessaloniki, but passengers departing from regions deemed to be at high risk of contagion by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) will have to submit a test (it is not clear whether the serological or the swab) for SARS-CoV-2. Among these regions there are also four Italian regions: Emilia-Romagna, Lombardy, Piedmont and Veneto.

Those who are negative in the test – to find out the result, they will have to wait a day to spend in the hotel – will be able to move freely in Greece after a seven-day self-isolation period; the positives will instead have to stay in quarantine for 14 days, under the control of local authorities. These are the same rules currently in force and valid until June 14 for all international passengers arriving at Athens airport, the only one open for now for flights from abroad. From July 1st Greece will reopen all its airports to international flights and will also allow arrivals by sea.
