What do you need to know before traveling to Greece?

Hospitable Greece finally opens its borders to Ukrainian tourists! Starting from June 6. Wizz Air airlines launch regular flights from Kyiv Sikorsky International Airport (IEV) to Athens and Thessaloniki twice a week.

10 facts for tourists:

  • - Please fill out a special form one day before departure. Otherwise, you will have to pay a fine of 500 euros.

You must have one of three documents with you:

  • - Vaccination certificate (with at least 14 days after receiving the second dose of vaccine).
  • - Or certificate of recovery from coronavirus or an antibody test that is valid for 2 to 9 months.
