Harry Theoharis, the Tourism Minister of Greece has announced this decision to reopen the country for international tourists.

Theoharis said “Always having in mind the faithful implementation of the health protocols, we aspire to open Greek Tourism on May 14. I emphasize, however, that all the opening dates are indicative and may change, depending on developments.”

It must be noted that Greece majorly depends on tourism, with about a fifth of the economy dependent on it. It has been reported that one in every five workers is involved in the tourism industry.

The nation was gravely affected by the deadly coronavirus that shut down the world in March last year. Foreign arrivals stopped in the midst of a pandemic, and the economy was largely hampered.

Tourism Minister further added that tourists will be able to come into the country if they have been vaccinated before their arrival into the country, or have antibodies, or their test comes back negative.”

It is worth mentioning that the first people to get vaccinated will be those who work in the hospitality sector after the more vulnerable people get the vaccine. Employees involved in the tourism sector are likely to get frequently tested as well.
