From May 1, visitors will enter Greece without showing an EU Digital Covid Certificate, as well as enjoy full access to museums, archaeological sites, restaurants and other culture and entertainment venues for which vaccination or recovery certificates were previously required. The move came after the recommendation of the scientific committee advising the Greek government on April 28 and represents the latest measure to allow smooth travel into the country, following the abolishment of Passenger Locator Forms last month. “During the pandemic, Greece was one of the pioneering countries that facilitated a safe opening to tourism through initiatives such as the creation of an EU Covid Certificate that could facilitate a more efficient way of travelling,” said Greece’s Minister of Tourism, Vassilis Kikilias. “Greece was also one of the first countries to establish a series of health and safety measures in the hospitality sector that guaranteed a safe environment for those who chose our country for their holidays. This has paid off with the trust of millions of travellers that enjoyed their long-awaited time in Greece.” Kikilias added: “This season, that has already started, is an opportunity for a less logistically and stress-free prior-to-arrival procedure but equally safe journey to witness Greek hospitality, explore new destinations and discover your next favourite spot in the country.” Welcoming the removal of Covid-related travel restrictions, Yiannis Retsos, president of the Greek Tourism Confederation (SETE), stated: “Throughout the pandemic, the whole tourism sector cooperated closely with the Greek government to allow the safe and seamless opening of the travel market. Tourism-related businesses and employees operated with a high sense of responsibility and full compliance with strict health and safety protocols to ensure a safe travel experience to visitors.” Retsos added: “Turning this major challenge into an opportunity, Greek private tourism businesses have worked tirelessly to improve their services, with the aim of enhancing the overall travel experience. We are positive that the 2022 tourism season will further strengthen Greece’s image as a favourite and trusted holiday destination.” [post_title] => Greece abolishes need for Covid certificates to enter country [post_excerpt] => [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => closed [ping_status] => closed [post_password] => [post_name] => greece-abolishes-need-for-covid-certificates-to-enter-country [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2022-06-23 14:40:32 [post_modified_gmt] => 2022-06-23 14:40:32 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => https://www.marketinggreece.com/?post_type=news&p=134380 [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => news [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw ) Greece abolishes need for Covid certificates to enter country

WP_Post Object ( [ID] => 134377 [post_author] => 46 [post_date] => 2022-03-03 14:29:31 [post_date_gmt] => 2022-03-03 14:29:31 [post_content] =>   Greece is abolishing the requirement of international visitors to fill in a Passenger Location Form (PLF) before their arrival, in the latest move to ease Covid measures upon entering the country. From March 15, passengers from all countries will no longer need to complete the online form up to 48hrs before they arrive in Greece. This comes after the announcement last month that visitors from America, Canada and Australia would be joining those holding a European Union Digital Covid Certificate (available to citizens in EU member states, Schengen countries, the UK and more than 30 non-EU countries) in not needing to present a negative Covid test upon arrival in Greece. Providing that passengers hold a valid vaccination certificate showing that they have been fully vaccinated within the last nine months or have received a booster dose (without time restriction), or hold a Covid-19 recovery certificate valid for 180 days after the date of issue, they can enter and move freely within Greece. The requirement is for passengers aged 5 and above.

Providing they have a valid vaccination certificate showing that they were fully vaccinated during the last nine months or have received a booster dose (without time restriction), or if they hold a Covid-19 recovery certificate valid for 180 days after the date of issue, they are able to enter and move freely within Greece. The move, which was announced on Saturday 12 February and applies to visitors aged over 5, is the latest initiative by the Greek authorities to boost tourism and support fully vaccinated visitors to Greece, having earlier this month announced similar exemptions for visitors from the European Union and Schengen Area as well as the 33 countries (including the UK) who have joined the EU Digital Covid Certificate system. Visitors who are not fully vaccinated may enter Greece by presenting a negative PCR test, performed within 72hrs of travel, or a negative Rapid Antigen test, performed within 24hrs of travel. Easing the travel requirements for visitors to Greece comes after the implementation of strict measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19 (such as safety protocols for hotels and tourism-related companies and entry to shops, indoor & outdoor entertainment venues and archaeological sites & museums requiring a vaccination certificate or a negative test for Covid-19).

With the support of Grand Sponsors COSMOTE and in partnership with AEGEAN and Eurobank, the campaign is operating under the auspices of the Hellenic Ministry of Tourism and Ministry of Digital Governance, inviting Digital Nomads to transform their work life into a lifetime experience. With the famed climate, lifestyle, authentic experiences, and Mediterranean diet constituting competitive advantages for Greece, Work From Greece highlights the country’s unique qualities as an ideal destination for remote workers, as well as offering practical information on how to make the move, including securing a Digital Nomad Visa. Through workfromgreece.gr, the international community of Digital Nomads is being presented with an open invitation to move their workspace to Greece by:
  • Providing useful information that answers their main questions about living in Greece
  • Encouraging them to imagine their professional daily life in Greece through inspirational travel content
  • Inviting them to connect with the communities of remote workers that already exist in various destinations in Greece
  • Feeding them with testimonials from Digital Nomads already living and working in Greece
  • Strengthening the concept of community through the power of Social Media and the creation of dedicated digital channels on LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter
The workfromgreece.gr platform aims to become a hub, not just for the Digital Nomad community thinking about or already living in the country but also for the growing ecosystem of companies providing services to remote workers in Greece (including co-living and co-working spaces). At the same time, to help attract Digital Nomads to Greece, workfromgreece.gr is offering rights-free digital content through a Content Kit*. A series of videos is being made available (Your office view| Your open-space office | Your conference room| Your after-work drinks), transposing popular workplace terms onto classic urban and island settings in Greece, creating the connection between regular office life and aspirational scenes of everyday living and the feeling of being in Greece.
*The video content must be used in its entirety and unaltered.
“Digital Nomads are a dynamic and up-and-coming community that will continue to grow, even when the current environment stabilises. The emerging opportunity for Greece can be a powerful vehicle for attracting interest, and achieving it requires a collective effort – from the active participation of the public sector and the contribution of destinations in creating or strengthening infrastructure to the cooperative nature of communities and the development of Greek tourism initiatives. In this initiative, we have the significant support of COSMOTE as a Grand Sponsor, as well as our partners AEGEAN and Eurobank, who are once again assisting our work. We would like to thank them for their continued support,” said Ioanna Dretta , CEO of Marketing Greece. “The coverage and reliability of networks, both mobile and fixed-line, are a fundamental criterion of this new generation of remote workers when choosing the physical location of their digital activities. With state-of-the-art technologies, such as 5G and Fiber to the Home, COSMOTE has developed high-quality infrastructure throughout Greece, which is an incentive to attract Digital Nomads. The new generation networks give impetus to the Greek economy, create prospects for digital development and contribute to the creation of a better world for all,” said George Onopas, Fixed & Mobile Access Network DevOps Director at OTE Group of Companies (HTO).
