Vaccinations and travel requirements for April 2022
What are the requirements to travel to Greece now, do I need a PCR or is the vaccination certificate enough? It is normal to ask yourself these questions, as 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.

This decision is part of a series of measures being taken by the Greek government to improve the prospects for tourism, which is the engine of the Greek economy and accounts for 25-30% of the country’s gross domestic product and workforce.
In the European Union as a whole, Iceland and Liechtenstein, where a number of countries or regions are still in red or orange status, the digital certificate, which is intended to avoid obstacles to travel, has been in force since July 1.
