Tornos News | Travel on ferries restricted to permanent island residents in Greece

Greek Shipping and Island Policy Minister Yiannis Plakiotakis, in cooperation with Deputy Minister for Civil Protection Nikos Hardalias, on Friday announced measures for ferry routes in the context of the measures against the spread of the coronavirus, ANA reports.

In this context, from Saturday, March 21, only permanent island residents and supplies will be allowed to travel on the ferries and those that wish to depart from the islands on the return journey

Since the only passengers now allowed to travel to islands are their permanent residents, the only acceptable way to prove this will be for the passenger to show their tax return form, effective as of Saturday. 

Meanwhile, sources added, ferry operators will try to connect their systems with Taxisnet – Greece’s online tax services – to quickly confirm a passenger’s claim.
