Travel directive for Greece, issued by the State Department due to the increase in coronavirus cases in our country. In particular, the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that travel to Greece be avoided if it is not necessary, for example, does not involve humanitarian and medical assistance or family emergencies.


In fact, the US health agency is calling on travellers belonging to high-risk groups to postpone even the trips that are deemed necessary. As infectious disease specialists on the other side of the Atlantic explain, the risk of someone getting COVID-19 in Greece is high and if someone gets sick and needs medical help, resources may be limited.

The Department of State has issued a Travel Advisory Level 3 for Greece advising U.S. citizens to reconsider travel to Greece due to COVID-19.

Those who, despite the directive, do not postpone their trip to our country, are invited to be informed through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs or the Ministry of Health in Greece and the State Department for all the details regarding their entry into the country and the restrictions that may are available for those arriving in Greece, such as mandatory tests or quarantine.


The CDC also clarifies that if someone tests positive, they may not be allowed to return to the United States until they have fully recovered from the disease.
