New requirements for travel to Spain and Greece 2022
What are the requirements to travel to Greece now? Do I need a PCR or is the vaccination certificate enough? It is normal that you ask yourself these questions, since we are in a time of many changes. Fortunately, the Hellenic country is one of the destinations where you can travel now. At IATI Insurance, as lovers of Greece, we are going to tell you everything you need to know so that you can plan your adventure and discover beautiful landscapes and corners with centuries of history.
It is expected that from May 1, 2022, all these restrictions will disappear. The use of face masks indoors will only be mandatory in certain limited cases. Greece wants to boost tourism at all costs this summer, so if you decide to visit, you will find an almost normal climate.
As we told you in Is it safe to travel to Greece, you should always drive with caution, but we advise you to be much more cautious in Greece. Forced overtaking is not uncommon and many drivers expect you to pull straight onto the shoulder so that they can overtake you. In addition, most of the roads are not in good condition.

In Athens, the Athens Festival, which includes concerts, theater and dance, among others, takes place from June to September. It is held at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus. Also in the same locality, between April and October, there are numerous programs of light and sound, with performances mainly by folk groups. And finally, beyond the festivals, if what you are looking for is to know a good part of the Greek tradition and idiosyncrasy, we recommend you to go on the dates of the Orthodox Holy Week, one of the most representative exponents of its culture and its most deeply rooted rites.
As for the more continental destinations, it is worth not missing cities like Athens, its capital, Thessaloniki, of great artistic and cultural movement, or Corinth with its great temple dedicated to the god Apollo. Many other places such as the ruins of Thebes or Olympia are also worth visiting.
As for visa or passport requirements, it is not necessary for those countries of the EU or those that are part of the Schengen treaty. However, for citizens of countries such as Russia, Ukraine or Ivory Coast, a visa is required. In this website you will find the basic requirements to travel to Greece: Visas-Greece.
