Greece ready for ‘a race with the Canary Islands’ to get British tourists first
Greece has announced that it will be completely open for tourism from May 14th, with special attention to monopolizing the British market, where they are fully expecting to embark on "a race" with Cyprus and the Canary Islands to attract the multitude of Brits to their shores.
These are the words of the Greek Minister of Tourism, Harry Theocharis, who placed special emphasis on conducting "random Covid tests" upon arrival of passengers, as a guarantee so that there are no new outbreaks in their country.
At the moment international travel from the UK is prohibited but there is an announcement scheduled for April 12th when the strategy, and recommendations, for the summer will be announced with an expected date of May 17th for travel to be allowed, as long as their epidemiological data permits.

“If 3.5 million come as they did in 2019, it will be fantastic for us,” insisted Theocharis: “Not only will those vaccinated be able to travel, because we will accept travellers with a negative Covid test as well. I am sure that Greece will figure on Boris Johnson's roadmap.”
