Greece: 14-day quarantine for passengers arriving from abroad extended to end of May

"The mandatory 14-day self-quarantine rule on international flight arrivals, first imposed on 16 March, is extended to the end of May, the Civil Aviation Authority said on Monday (18 May), AMNA reported.


International passengers land at Athens International airport only and have to take a COVID-19 test upon arrival. If the test is positive, foreign nationals are denied entry to Greece.

With these measures, it seems like no surprise that the tourism sector has suffered. The Greek government and the Greek government wanted to do something about it.

On 23 April, Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis called on the European Commission to come up with a plan to resume travel “as soon as possible”, according to Greek government sources. Speaking at the EU Council, Mitsotakis reportedly said the EU single market is not there only to serve the free movement of goods but also of people".
