Israeli travelers will be able to enter Greece with no restrictions beginning September 15, the Foreign Ministry informed the public on Monday.

Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias updated Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi of the decision. Travel will be subject to a negative coronavirus test, which has to have been taken within 72 hours of traveling.

“There is an important strategic partnership between Israel and Greece and the fact that Greece is the first country to open its gates in the coronavirus era is proof of the strong covenant between Greece and Israel,” Ashkenazi said.

Since last month, Israelis can travel to and return from 30 countries without entering quarantine. These include: Australia, Uruguay, United Arab Emirates, Ireland, Taiwan, Norway, Singapore, Portugal. Thailand, Austria, Italy, Estonia, Bulgaria, the United Kingdom, Georgia, Germany, Denmark, Hong Kong, Hungary, Greece, Jordan, Latvia, Lithuania, New Zealand, Slovenia, Finland, Canada, Cyprus, Croatia and Rwanda.

However, travel to these countries is subject to restrictions, and in most cases, still forbidden to Israelis.

On Monday, the foreign minister held a situation assessment regarding the opening of the sky to tourists, businessmen and Israeli students going abroad with Israeli ambassadors from potential destination countries for Israeli tourism and representatives from the Tourism and Health ministries, but no decisions were made.

It was also announced by the Health Ministry that beginning immediately Israelis who need coronavirus tests before traveling abroad will be able to get them within 72 hours at local hospitals for around NIS 300.
