Greece opening to tourists but...


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Greece is a favourite destination of ours.

 

I would not place any stock in what Government officials predict.  Ditto for travel industry folks.  Greece or any other countries.   

 

Covid is still very much a moving target.

 

We place far more stock in the conclusions that can be drawn from  weekly covid stats.  Exact same for a few more destinations that are on our radar.

There is also talk of Turkey opening but....

Not to mention that there are numerous versions of 'opening up' that range from complete back to normal down to lots of closures, restrictions, but you can come as long as you have proof of vaccination and/or take a covid test 48 hours prior to entry.

At least three of the cruise lines sailing in Greece this summer will have fully authorized COVID testing facilities onboard their ships. The line I am familiar with can provide test results in 40 minutes.

Could you name those lines please?

This could be an unwelcome circumstance:

 

“Officials said targeted rapid checks will be carried out at entry points and quarantine hotels are ready to accommodate those who test positive during this process.”

 

Arrive at the airport or cruise terminal and test positive? A relaxing stay in a quarantine hotel and no cruise.   What about on return to port?  Testing positive means you can’t return to US.  Are these quarantine hotels where Greek authorities will place people?
