Citizens of non-EU countries such as UK, USA, Serbia, Israel and others may enter indoor spaces such as theaters, restaurants, cafes and bars, by showing their vaccination or coronavirus recovery certificate in either digital or paper format, along with an ID, the Greece’s Ministry of Tourism clarified on Wednesday.
The question arose because the certificates for Greek and other EU nationals are checked at the above spaces through the Covid Free GR app, notes state news agency amna.
Last week, a couple from UK, both fully vaccinated, denounced to newspaper avgi.gr that their vaccination certificates are not being recognized by the Covid Free GR application and that they were not allowed to enter indoor venues.
Although their certificates were recognized at the airport gates, it was cleared as “invalid” when they tried to enter six indoor venues in the city of Thessaloniki in northern Greece.
Similar cases were reported by other tourists on the islands, notes the newspaper.
