Vaccination program at home by the Municipality of Athens

The Municipality of Athens continues to contribute, by all means and in every way, to the national effort to deal with the coronavirus and return to normalcy ....

Travelers who have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19 in the European Union and the United States will henceforth be exempted from quarantine in England, a measure requested by expatriates that does not apply to arrivals from France, the British government announced today.

This measure, for which the tourism sector was also fighting, will enter into force from 04:00 (06:00 Greek time) on Monday, August 2, the Ministry of Transport clarified.

For countries in the "orange" category, which is the vast majority of tourist destinations, including the EU and the United States, the UK imposes a quarantine of at least five days on travelers and costly tests.

It has already excluded from quarantine travelers who have been vaccinated by the British health system but not those who have been vaccinated abroad, much to the dismay of expatriate Britons in these countries for whom any return home is very difficult.

From now on, England will apply the same measure to those vaccinated in the European Union or the United States, for arrivals from all countries that have been classified in the "orange" category, except France, due to the presence of the beta variant.

"Separate rules will continue to apply to arrivals from France," the ministry said in a statement.

Travelers who have been vaccinated in the United States will also need to prove that they are US residents.

A PCR test will remain mandatory two days after arrival.

These measures also do not apply to countries classified as "red" by London (India, United Arab Emirates, South America…) from which only UK residents can come and quarantine at their own expense in hotels designated for this purpose.
