Greece has lifted all COVID-19 travel restrictions, including face masks and RT-PCR certificates. The country said it has lifted all summer tourism restrictions.

Greek authorities recorded 15,000 infections and 64 deaths as of Tuesday. So far, only 72% of the population has been fully vaccinated.

The country is expecting a large number of visitors this summer and the government has announced that from May 1 to August 31, travelers will no longer need a coronavirus vaccination certificate to visit any indoor or open spaces in Greece. Passengers can freely enter restaurants and other public places.

Greece is one of the most popular summer destinations in Europe. In 2019, the country attracted over 33 million visitors and most of the travelers were from the UK and Germany. Obviously, the tourism sector alone accounts for one-fifth of the country's economy and employs one in five people.

Officials are also planning to do away with the requirement to present an EU digital COVID-19 certificate to enter the nation. Wearing of indoor masks will also not be required from June 1, 2022.
