Greek Health Minister says COVID passes for travellers to be ‘suspended’ from May 1




It’s official. Greece is fully reopening for the summer tourism season of 2022.

In an interview with SKAI TV on Tuesday, Greece’s Health Minister, Thanos Plevris, announced that COVID-19 vaccination and recovery certificates, as well as mandatory mask use indoors, would not longer be required as of May 1.

This announcement comes as part of the Greek government’s efforts to ease pandemic-related restrictions after Greek Easter and ahead of summer.

Plevris was quick to point out, however, that the measure is temporary and that the certificates will not be abolished but “suspended.”

According to Keep Talking Greece, Plevris told local media that “the measures will be reviewed again in September.”

Plevris then touched on a possible fourth dose of the coronavirus vaccine for Greek citizens and said a decision on this will be made at the European level this month.
