Planning to spend the holidays in one of the five destinations opened to Israelis in Greece?

You should read this: The Greek government announced today (Tuesday) that Israelis seeking to vacation in the country will be forced not only to present a negative corona test, but to be tested again in Greece itself.



As part of the Greek government's efforts to combat the rise in morbidity in the Mediterranean island nation recently, the Greek Civil Aviation Authority (HCAA) has announced a number of new guidelines for all landers in the country, to be implemented from today until midnight on September 15.

The set date is before Rosh Hashanah, but it is not known how the morbidity rates in Greece will develop and whether the test date will be extended into October and Sukkot.



According to the Greek Aviation Authority, passengers arriving in Greece from Israel must present a negative corona test up to 72 hours before arrival.

However, residents who live in Israel regularly will have to repeat the corona detection test in Greece, subject to the tourist limit that can enter from Israel, which currently stands at 1,200 people per week and only at the airports of Athens, Heraklion, Thessaloniki, Corfu and Kos.
