Tatjana Matic and Haris Teoharis, Ministers of Tourism of Serbia and Greece, met in Serbia’s capital today. During their meeting Greek minister stated that this year, the citizens of Serbia will be able to go on holiday to Greece with a vaccination certificate, a negative PCR test or rapid test, and the Greek borders will most likely be open for our tourists in mid-April, although the season officially begins on May 14. Even better news for Serbian tourists is that, unlike other European countries, Greece will accept all vaccines, including the Chinese Sinpharm and Russian Sputnik V, although they have not been accepted at the EU level yet.
When it comes to children, Teoharis said that children up to 10 years of age do not need a vaccine or a PCR test, and those older than 10 years need a negative test.
He announced that Greece plans to open the trial season in April for citizens of countries with a high vaccination rate, including Serbia, and that Greece will open its borders for most other countries in mid-May.
He adds that he cannot talk about the exact date yet, because a lot depends on the situation in April, but that Greek authorities are quite convinced that they can start the opening in the second half of April.
In the trial season, as he stated, two crossings over Bulgaria will be opened, while from May 14, even the Evzoni crossing over Northern Macedonia will open.
Could this be the long-awaited end to this long pandemic period that we have been waiting for for so long? People are tired and need to relax and rest and the light at the end of the tunnel can now be seen with the help of vaccines. Let’s hope it will last and that soon this will be in the past and we will all be lying on a beautiful Sithonia beach, drinking mythos bear, listening to bouzouki in the background and enjoying life to the fullest!
