Corona-Ausbruch und Ausgangsverbot auf Insel Mykonos.


People gather in the narrow streets on the Aegean island of Mykonos. On the party island, there was a nocturnal ban on going out in bars for seven days due to disregarded corona rules.

Meanwhile, the country has decided to recommend the corona vaccination for children and adolescents aged 12 to 15 years.

Around 47 of the population are currently fully vaccinated, she added.

Incidence in Greece is increasing: this should be considered when entering the country

  • – Caution is advised and travelers should follow the information from the Federal Foreign Office
    – Observe valid entry restrictions such as registration, proof and, if applicable, quarantine regulations
    – Observe quarantine and test requirements for travelers
    – Think of the online pre-entry health check-up form
    – Incompletely vaccinated persons: Submission of a negative PCR test no longer than 72 hours old or a rapid test no more than 48 hours old from a recognized test laboratory (the name given must match the name on the identification document)
    – Ten days of quarantine for unvaccinated people who test positive
    – Seven days of quarantine for fully vaccinated individuals who test positive

According to the Federal Foreign Office, the measures against Covid-19 include, among other things, that you are only allowed to enter with a negative corona test. A PCR test must not be older than 72 hours and a rapid test a maximum of 48 hours old. Anyone who has been fully vaccinated for at least 14 days needs the digital vaccination certificate * as proof.

Irrespective of this, a free COVID-19 rapid test, which is mandatory, will be carried out on arrival in individual cases. If the test result is positive, a quarantine of up to ten days at a suitable location determined by the responsible authorities will be ordered. Online registration also applies to all entries by sea, air and land. Travelers must fill out an online form at least 24 hours before departure for Greece.

Entering Greece: This is what tourists must consider

Restrictions on public life concern, for example, capacity restrictions in shops and museums. Tourist accommodations and hotels are allowed to open. Capacity limits and special hygiene rules apply to public transport. A vaccination certificate is required to visit localities such as restaurants and cinemas in Greece.

There is a general obligation to wear mouth and nose protection for all persons aged four and over in all public, closed rooms. In addition, mouth and nose protection must be worn in busy outdoor areas nationwide. Violations are punished with a fine of 300 euros. Distance rules must be observed everywhere.
