British holidaymakers could be allowed to visit Greece from mid-June.
This is subject to mandatory testing and possible quarantine on arrival, however Spain says the UK’s infection rate must improve before it welcomes UK travellers there.
UK visitors to Greece will have to stay in Government-approved hotels while awaiting results of the mandatory test. If negative, they will spend a seven-day self-quarantine at their booked accommodation. If the test is positive, then holidaymakers will be required to quarantine under supervision for 14 days.
The policy applies from June 15-30, during what the Greeks are calling their ‘bridge phase’.
Spain, meanwhile, is planning to welcome a small number of foreign holidaymakers in two weeks’ time as part of a test run to re-boot its tourism business, but British visitors are not on the list.
