Greece tightens measures for non-booster tourists
Greek authorities have decided to tighten anti-coronavirus measures from February 1, 2022. They will equate citizens who have not received a third dose of vaccine with those who have not been vaccinated and will ban them from entering confined spaces.
This is what the head of the Greek Ministry of Health, Thanos Pleuris, said, noting that the ban on confinement will apply to those who were vaccinated more than seven months ago and did not receive a booster dose. Such citizens will be considered unvaccinated.
At the same time, their certificate will be valid as it is a pan-European standard document and its validity period is nine months. But people without a booster dose will not "enjoy the benefits of indoor and outdoor use that are available to those fully vaccinated (with the third dose)."
We remind you that in Greece, from mid-November 2021, the unvaccinated can visit restaurants, cinemas, museums, gyms only with a PCR test. In connection with the spread of the Omicron strain, a number of restrictions are in place in the country until 16 January.
