Italy and Greece Relax COVID-19 Restrictions for Tourists

The civil aviation authority of Greece has lifted its COVID-19 restrictions for domestic and international flights on Sunday in preparation for the peak of tourism season in Europe, which begins after Greek Orthodox Easter on April 24.

According to reports, passengers and staff only need to wear a face mask at airport arrivals, waiting areas, and flights.

Meanwhile, Italian Minister of Health, Roberto Speranza, signed a new order extending the provisions for arrivals from foreign countries until the end of May with the Passenger Locator Form (PLF) no longer necessary.

Health passes would no longer be required to access restaurants, cinemas, and other venues, but face masks are still necessary on public transportation and in cinemas.

In January, the European Council of the EU “adopted a revised recommendation on measures affecting free movement, allowing travelers with a valid EU digital COVID certificate to travel without restrictions.  

Health officials however still urged the public to exercise caution as the virus continues to spread.
