Norway is among the twenty countries that can send tourists to Greece when the country opens up in June. But it won’t all be plain sailing for Norwegians’ Greece holidays.
The countries that Greece is opening up to are countries that have managed to limit the spread of infection, according to Flysmart24.
Denmark and Norway, but not Sweden are among the countries on the list. The other countries Greece will open to tourists from June 15 are: Cyprus, Israel, Germany, China, Australia, Japan, Austria, Bulgaria, Serbia, Romania, Albania, Northern Macedonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Hungary, Poland , Czech Republic and Slovakia.
Despite the fact that Greece opens to Norwegians, there are still issues to overcome for Norwegians. The major charter companies Tui, Ving and Apollo have all canceled their flights this summer, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs discourages all journeys that are not strictly necessary for all countries until August 20. Furthermore, the home quarantine still applies for 10 days if one has been abroad.
Most travel insurance is closely linked to the Foreign Ministry’s travel advice. Communications advisor Andreas Bibow Handeland of Europeiske Reiseforsikring informs the website that travel insurance does not apply in Greece.
Foreign Minister Ine Eriksen Søreide (Høyre) has previously said that the government will consider opening to travelers from the Nordic countries by June 15 and neighboring countries by July 20. It is not known whether Greece is among the relevant neighboring countries.
