Greece ready to activate EU Digital Green Certificate earlier than July 1

“Greece is ready to activate the EU Digital Green Certificate earlier than July 1 and we encourage other countries to do the same to avoid the complexity of bilateral negotiations,” said Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis at an event on Friday morning where the country presented the EU Digital Green Certificate. The Certificate functions as “a fast lane” facilitating easy traveling within the European Union.

” I insist that our intention is not to divide, but the digital certificate will make a decisive contribution to facilitating travel, especially in the summer, which is a tourist season,” the PM added.

EU member states have agreed last week to activate the Green Certificate from July 1.

Present at the event were also the President of the European Council Charles Michel, the Vice President of the European Commission for Promoting our European Way of Life, Margaritis Schinas and Digital Governance Minister Kyriakos Pierrakakis.

The event took place at the premises of the National Infrastructures for Research and Technology (GRNET).

  1. After 3 months of applying we got PAMKAs and have our first jab today! eventually i applied to the web site every day and after another week got the pamka ………….sooooooooooo frustrating! We are already dreading the effort it will take to get the certificate as we hear that the temp amkas get deleted after the second jab and so you cannot get the certificate. The next dread is the boosters ………are we going through this temporary AMKA hell every 6 months? If so we are definitely selling and going somewhere we are wanted. WHY does greece not just give us an AMKA like the 300,000 greeks get in the uk? At least this system stops greece becoming too popular. We are considering leaving JUST because of this stupidity (and the crazy planning laws!) ……we love greece and the greek people but know for certain now that we are not welcome here by the government. shame.

  2. Why would anyone get this ‘jab’ is beyond me. If you get it you can still get infected, you still have to wear a mask. The odds are not low for complications as compared to the survival rate. Add the fact that this stuff is made with aborted baby parts makes this a disgusting proposition.
    Now it is not mandated you have to take this, as it is still experimental and now they add that you will have to get boosters every 6 months, how will this affect this “show me your papers?”
    Sorry Greece has done a fine job of scaring the people into compliance, well not sorry, actually.
    This whole scenario is again showing the deeps that gov’t take to get control over the people.

    Oh btw how come we are still wearing masks when it has been shown that they do nothing except hide your face? Fauci and many others have said so; so why is it obligatory to wear one here?
