With the vaccination, it seems that travelling is back in the game. Greece is starting the step-by-step procedure of reopening its tourism segment by removing quarantine requirements for travellers arriving from 32 nations who’ve been vaccinated or negative for COVID-19.
Greece is permitting citizens from the 27-member European Union, United States, Britain, Israel, Serbia, and the United Arab Emirates, who meet the testing or vaccination prerequisites to enter the country without the need to self-isolate for ten days.
Greece is above all a tourism-reliant country bringing in more than 20 per cent of the country’s gross domestic product. one in five jobs normally is supplied by the tourism sector.
As such, Greece has been particularly active in its efforts to invigorate its tourism industry, precisely given that many Europeans go to Greece for their summer season holidays.
Therefore, they are typically the largest share of the country’s tourism-derived revenue. Greece has writhed hardly from financial losses over the past year because of the pandemic and the global travel restrictions.
The government is strongly supporting “vaccine passports” with the hope of boosting travelling back up.
Although vaccination has started in many contraries, E.U. member fight against COVID-19 is being delayed by Europe’s rather slow vaccine rollout. Only two million jabs having been administered thus far.
“The threat continues to remain, and for that reason, as we have shown, we are moving forward step by step once, every week, we have evaluated the epidemiological data with experts,” said Kyriakos Mitsotakis, the prime minister of Greece, believing that it was still too soon to lift the restrictions.
In the end, there is light at the end of the tunnel for Greece. Vaccination will spread its wings and all E.U. nations would be inoculated which means the nation’s most travelling source would be ready for operation.
