Ten years ago, today for the day May 2010, the Eurogroup finance ministers decide to launch the aid plan for Greece in the midst of an economic downturn. After three successive plans, and 289 billion euros in loans from the IMF and the European authorities, Greece is just beginning to catch its breath. A short respite.

Tourists coming to Greece from July 1 will have to complete an online questionnaire 48 hours in advance and will receive a barcode which will determine if they should be screened upon arrival.

The Greek government ended this weekend’s Covid-19 screening tests for travelers by country of origin, who had confused tourists. The latter did not know whether they should spend a night at the hotel to be tested or be placed in quarantine after landing since June 15 in Athens and Thessaloniki.

Greece, which has been relatively spared from the coronavirus with 191 dead, is waging a vast promotional campaign aimed at reviving tourism , which represents a quarter of its GDP, by reassuring potential travelers as well as Greeks who fear a resurgence of the pandemic with the return of tourists.

An online questionnaire

The government has implemented a new protocol, requiring travelers to complete an online questionnaire 48 hours before their arrival, with personal details such as their country of origin or the countries crossed during last fortnight. This questionnaire is mandatory until August 31.

Each person will then receive a personal QR code established according to the data provided, which will be verified on their mobile phone or in paper print at their port of arrival.

Depending on its barcode, it will be directed to the exit or to the screening area. In this case, she must isolate herself at the address provided on the questionnaire, pending the results of the test, according to the new civil protection protocol.

An algorithm

With this new "algorithm procedure, we will have a good chance of being able to detect the majority of imported cases" , said Dimitris Paraskevis, member of the expert committee of the Greek Ministry of Health, to Skai TV.

As of July 1, all airports in the country will reopen for international flights, the ports of Patras and Igoumenista will again welcome ferries from Italy and the rest of the country's ports will be reopened to cruise ships.
