CAN I TRAVEL TO GREECE?

Updated November 3rd, 2021

Daydreaming about Greece all day every day! Thinking of all the pitta & tzatziki, Mythos (that's greek beer btw), and of course, the unreal views, sunsets and beaches. The Greece withdrawal symptoms are hitting HARD. So this is what we know about getting into Greece...

Can I travel to Greece?

Yes! Greece is open for tourism, in fact we spent the summer sailing the islands!

Entry requirements for Greece:

Can I travel to Greece if I’m fully vaccinated?

If you’re fully vaccinated travellers, you can visit Greece, Infact you would just need to show proof of being fully vaccinated to gain entry this could by using the UK COVID Pass app or the EU digital COVID Pass. Of course, this would need to be by one of Greece's approved vaccinations. You can find more about this here.

Can I travel to Greece if I’m unvaccinated/not fully vaccinated?

If you’re unvaccinated/not-fully vaccinated travellers, yes you can still visit Greece! However you would need to provide either a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken up to 72 hours before entry or a rapid antigen test taken up to 48 hours before entry.

Do I need a negative test to enter Greece?

Yes, but only if you are not fully vaccinated/unvaccinated or can not show proof of recovery via a negative PCR result in the past 30 to 180 days.

Do I need a vaccine to enter Greece?

You do not need a vaccine to enter Greece however you would need to provide either a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours or arrival or a negative rapid antigen test taken with 48 hours of arrival.

Do I need to quarantine when entering Greece?

Nope! No quarantine on arrival!

 

Do I need to quarantine when returning to the UK if I'm fully vaccinated?

If you are fully vaccinated, then before you travel back to England, you must take a COVID-19 test no more than 2 days before you travel to England and book and pay for a COVID-19 PCR test that is to be taken after you arrive in England. You'll also need to complete a passenger locator form in the 48 hours before you arrive in England. When you're back in England, you can take the COVID-19 test any time after you arrive and before the end of day 2 at the latest. The day you arrive is day 0. You have to quarantine in your home or the place you are staying while you wait for the results but as soon as you get your negative result, you're good to go, you can end your quarantine! 

Do I need to quarantine when returning to the UK if I'm not fully vaccinated?

If you are not vaccinated or only partially vaccinated, then the process is pretty similar for before you travel back to England. You must take a COVID-19 test no more than 2 days before you travel to England and book and pay for day 2 and day 8 COVID-19 PCR tests that are to be taken after you arrive in England. You'll also need to complete a passenger locator form in the 48 hours before you arrive in England. When you're back in England, you must take the first test on or before day 2 and the second test on or after day 8. The day you arrive is day 0. You only have to take the day 8 test if the day 2 test is negative. If the day 8 test is negative, you're good to go, you can end your quarantine! 

When Is The Best Time To Visit Greece:

The best time to visit Greece is Springtime, April to early June, and Autumn, September to October. You'll find the temperatures to be warm but not tooooo hot, as we know Greece has the potential to get VERY hot & steamy during the summer months. During these months you'll find that Greece is not as busy compared to the height of the summer. Although Greece is 10/10 whenever you go, just if you go in the summer.. make sure to take plenty of suncream (environment friendly if pos)!

GREECE LIGHTNING!

Not sure about you, but I've been dreaming of lying on a white sandy beach, Aperol Spritz in hand, eating halloumi gyros all day and then going to watch a BANGING sunset. That has Greece written all over it if you ask me. We just want to live our best life in Greece! So once that time comes, here are some bucket list ticking activities & places to visit for when you are in Greece!

Syvota Blue Lagoon

 Syvota, one of the smaller Ionian Islands, is a MUST visit. Seriously. Think of paradise, and you're basically imagining Syvota. Syvota is also one of the most beautiful islands in the whole of Greece. The blue lagoon is mesmerising, the sand is golden, and it's famous for a reason. Swimming, snorkelling sunbathing are just a few of the activities on hand when visiting Syvota's blue lagoon. Trust us when we say it's not to be missed. Soooo, you know what to do.

Santorini Sunsets

World. Famous. Sunsets. Yeah, we said it. The sunsets in Greece are OUT of this world! Gaze out onto the well-known white villas of Santorini while the sun is setting across the ocean. Hues of oranges, pinks, purples and golds all creating what we like to call a magnificent, 10/10, jaw-dropping sunset. Defo one for the 'gram, make all your friends & fam jealous while you're at it! Alexa, play Sunset Lover by Petit Biscuit. See you in Santorini for sunset!

Mykonos Windmills

The windmills in Mykonos are a bucket list activity, 100%! A famous spot for travellers and photographers, overlooking Mykonos and the ocean, there are 16-grain windmills which have made quite the reputation for themselves. Get yourself some fab snaps in front of the windmills, and take in the fantastic view in front of you.. The bright blue sea, white villas, clear blue sky and mountainous landscape of Greece.

You know what we say, don't quit your daydream! Until next time.. hopefully on a beach in Greece!
