Greek Tourism Minister in London for meetings to facilitate unobstructed travel

Greece’s Tourism Minister Haris Theoharis will have a series of meetings with top UK officials, representatives of airline companies and tourism market executives during his visit to London between Monday and Wednesday to promote the opening of the 2021 Greek tourism season on May 15.

Aim of the Greek Tourism Minister is to discuss with UK officials the terms that will allow unobstructed movement between Greece and the UK in the immediate future.

Theoharis’ visit comes just days after Britain excluded Greece and other countries of the European South from its first “green list for safe travel”

The Greek Minister will meet with UK Minister for Asia at the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) Nigel Adams and Noel Josephides, member of the board of the Association of Independent Tour Operators, AITO, and president of the Travel Foundation, as well as with top executives of the three largest UK airlines – British Airways, EasyJet and Jet2.

The UK is one of the largest markets for Greek tourism. Indicatively, 3.5 million tourists from the UK visited Greece in 2019.

    Hi I have seen 2 different statement regarding entry into Greece. On Greek travel gov. it states that if we are fully vaccinated we do not need to have a PCR test for entry to Greece.

    On the uk gov. it states that we still need a PCR test even when fully vaccinated. These tests are costing a lot as we would then need one before we leave Greece and the another 2 when we get home. This would add a minimum of £400 to our holiday. Can you verify this please?

    Regards
