Greece plans to lift all COVID19 restrictions until September so that even the unvaccinated will be able to enter the country without a negative rapid test. The tests will be re-introduced in September, Greek portal Enimerotiko writes.
The 7th Economic Forum has recently been held in Delphi and the Greek Minister of Health Thanos Plevris announced there that canceling of Covid restrictions will be effective from May to the end of the summer.

This practically means that unvaccinated people will not need tests to sit in closed spaces in bars, cafes, restaurants, and nightclubs, and these measures will last during the summer. It is also applied to tourists visiting Greece in summer.
The Minister of Health added that “we are not ignoring the pandemic, but we are entering a new regularity by lifting the restrictions, however, we will be ready for the fall and vaccinations.”

It was discussed that the summer should be spent without restrictions and only with self-testing, without the obligation of a molecular or rapid test. In any case, the process will take place step by step.
However, it seems that this Easter will be spent with all the restrictions that are in force today, since the decision will be effective starting May 2.
Therefore, until May 2nd, it will be necessary for fully vaccinated with three doses to show a certificate of vaccination, in order to enter closed premises of bars, restaurants, but also in shops, while those who are still considered unvaccinated are excluded from the internal space and they need a negative quick test.
