Greece To Reopen To Australian Tourists This Month

The ‘Aegean Air Corridor’ to inform the country’s new international tourism plan.

Maybe that Mediterranean summer sojourn isn’t done just yet.

Greece has announced that travel from Australia will resume on June 15, with the country opening its borders to visitors from 29 nations, including ANZ.

Greek Minister of Tourism Haris Theocharis announced that flights to Greece will resume for a carefully selected group of tourists, stating, “Our aim is to be able to welcome every tourist who has overcome their fear and has the ability to travel to our country.”

Visitors arriving into Greece will still need to undergo a ‘coronavirus test’ which in theory is a minor health and temperature check.

Greece has so far reported just 175 deaths amongst 2,900 confirmed COVID-19 cases, with none extending from major tourist centres or islands.

While Greece is set to welcome antipodean tourists, know that Australians will still be required to comply with federal travel restrictions that currently ban overseas travel. At least for now – or until restrictions are further eased.

Until that time, explore domestically and keep the tanning oil and white linen on standby.
