Local Guidelines

General

Proof of vaccination or recovery from COVID-19 is required to enter most indoor public places. A negative antigen test taken within the previous 48 hours will also suffice. Greece has been divided into ‘zones’ in order to categorize restrictions. More restrictive or relaxed guidance may be in effect depending on the region you are visiting. Most of Greece is currently 'orange' or 'yellow' where restrictions are gradually lifting. For detailed information per zone, please visit https://covid19.gov.gr/co...
