Tension in Idomeni migrant camp


If you are considering where to travel to Europe now, you are in luck because Greece is one of the countries with its borders open to tourism and no pandemic-related requirements as of May 1, 2022.

As you can see, it is quite safe to travel to Greece and, moreover, you will find a climate of relative normality, as well as a tourism industry with decades of experience and prepared for these unique times.

Don’t want to wait for anyone else to join you or do you love to travel solo? No need to wait any longer! Traveling alone to Greece is safe and will be an experience you will never forget. Just follow the precautions you would have at home and avoid lonely places and the depressed neighborhoods we told you about a few lines above after sunset.

Remember that, due to the current situation, travel documents and requirements may change. At IATI we are constantly updating this information. However, we recommend always checking with official sources.


We are pleased to inform you of the official announcement of the Greek Government for the opening of Greece for those coming from all countries as of today 07/02/2022.    Entry to the country of Greece is allowed under specific restrictions which we detail below.

In the following paragraphs, we provide a step-by-step guide on how to prepare before traveling to Greece as of 07/02/2022. These guidelines are in place to ensure the protection of your health, as well as the health of your loved ones and all those involved in providing you with a safe hospitality experience:

Very easy to book and the location was excellent and walkable. Test itself was efficient, on time and results were delivered within 30minutes. Even though the U.S. dropped its testing requirement to return/enter to the States, I am glad we kept our appt for peace of mind and also as a courtesy of other passengers on the flight back.

An urgent PCR test usually provides results within 30 minutes. With a normal PCR test, same or next day. For worldwide travel, you will receive a travel certificate in several languages. When you get tested at one of our Dutch centers, you will receive a QR code for the CoronaCheck app that is valid for any European country.

If you have tested positive with a PCR test (urgent), you can download your recovery certificate in the CoronaCheck app after 11 days (if you have been tested in one of our Dutch centers).

Yes, that is certainly possible. We have a long experience with travelers abroad. We make sure that the certificate is accepted internationally and has a QR code to validate its authenticity with your camera app.
