In need of some vitamin D? From today on, people who have received their second corona vaccination will be able to travel to Greece without a negative PCR-test. All you need to enjoy the Greek sun is to provide a vaccination certificate from the GGD or the hospital.
According to the Dutch Ministry of Health, a vaccination certificate from the GGD or hospital will serve as “fraud proof” evidence of having received a proper vaccination, reports RTL news.
It is important that the personal details on the certificate match those of your passport (or another travel document). In addition, the certificate should state which vaccination you were administered and include the date of vaccination — the second shot should be no less than 14 days old.
Changes to previous regulations
Previously, people coming from the Netherlands needed to provide a negative PCR-test even after being fully vaccinated. The Greek government will allow Dutchies to explore its shores in spite of the fact that The Netherlands does not yet have an official vaccination passport.
This is because the Greek government now recognises a GGD or Dutch hospital vaccination certificate as carrying official value.
Not vaccinated but still want to travel?
If you are hoping to spend your vacation in Greece, but have not yet been vaccinated, you can still travel there if you can provide a negative PCR-test taken within the last 72 hours. People who have had corona within the last nine months are also allowed into Greece.
