Greece allows travellers with any vaccine to visit

COVID-19 vaccine vaccination

Greece new rules

All vaccines, even if the European Medicines Agency has not approved them, will be accepted by Greece for entry into the country, according to the member of the health committee instructing the government on the pandemic.

More precisely, speaking during a regular briefing of reporters, Vana Papaevangelou said the decision was taken following a recommendation by the committee. The vaccines accepted are Novavax, Sinovac Biotech, Sputnik V, Sinopharm and CanSino Biologics.

Papaevangelou also stressed that tourists would be able to enter from the land border. The specifications for hotels and ships will be updated while stating that tourism workers will undergo a weekly self-diagnostic test and complete their vaccinations.​​​​​​

She sounded the alarm for those who haven’t been vaccinated, noting that 98% of deaths in the last week were people who had not completed their vaccinations.
