This summer, the two Mediterranean countries of Greece and Cyprus expect a large wave of visitors and a (sort of) return to normalcy seems closer than ever!
As of Monday 11 April Cyprus proceeds to lifting face mask requirement in outdoor areas while quarantine time for confirmed cases is reduced to 7 days without the people that experience no further symptoms requiring an antigen test.
Employees working in businesses that render services to the public as well as in archaeological sites, museums and similar establishments no longer need a Safepass to enter their workplace (except for medical facilities and institutions). This does not apply for people working in restaurants and night clubs. As of 18 April 2022, Safepass shall no longer be required to enter retail shops and shopping malls.
In particular, starting 1 May, no vaccination certificate will be required to access any indoor or outdoor area of restaurants, cafés and retail shops. Wearing a mask indoors will no longer be obligatory as of 1 June, with few exceptions, such as trains, ships, as well as institutions and hospitals.
Testing will also be reduced for non-vaccinated employees, who now must take only one test a week.
Abolishing the European certificate is also on the table, so that all interested travellers, vaccinated or not, can enter Greece.
The main objective is to have a more enjoyable and free summer, always observing the main hygiene rules, given that 75% of the citizens have been vaccinated and a large part has been exposed to the virus at least once.
