Tornos News | Media report: Greece will only accept official documents from UK tourists


The Times reported Greek Tourism Minister Harry Theoharis saying that Greece is ready to welcome back British tourists who have been twice vaccinated and have a handwritten NHS card, according to greekcitytimes.com.

The NHS card must indicate the person’s name, the vaccine they have been given and the dates they were vaccinated.

Nevertheless, a spokesperson for Theoharis told Sky News that only official documentation would be acceptable – and that the Greek government’s understanding is that a UK health certificate will become available.

They noted: “We accept only official documents issued by the competent British authorities that prove the vaccination particulars.”

Greece currently accepts British tourists who have a vaccination certificate or a negative COVID-19 test that is no older than 72 hours from arrival.
