Greece to end restrictions on Israeli tourists

Greece

From September 15, there will be no restrictions on the numbers of Israeli entering Greece providing tourists have a valid negative Covid-19 test.

From September 15, Greece will cancel quotas on the number of Israelis entering the country, Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias has told his Israeli counterpart Gabi Ashkenazi.

When Greece first allowed Israeli tourists to visit the country last month only 600 Israelis per week were allowed into four destinations. The number was doubled from September 1 and from next week there will be no limit and Israelis can travel anywhere in Greece. However, Israelis will still be required to present a negative Covid-19 test from the previous 72-hours before being allowed into Greece.

On return to Israel no isolation is required because Greece is listed by the Ministry of Health as a 'green' low infection country.
