Greece is ready to welcome you!
Greece is ready to welcome you!

As of 14 May 2021, Greece is opening its doors to welcome back international sailors and adventure travellers.  

The Greek tourism industry is raring to go with measures in place ensuring the continued safety of travellers while sailing the Greek islands. Marinas, museums, beaches, restaurants and bars as well as the sparkling waters of the Aegean Sea are prepared to ensure a safe sun-soaked sailing vacation this summer. To add to your sailing experience; open-air archeological sites, museums, retail stores and shopping malls are now also open. Hotels are gradually welcoming guests again in smaller numbers. 

Some restrictions are still in place, and all travellers should refer to governmental advice from their country of origin prior to leaving home. As borders open, travel guidelines and protocols are changing constantly but at the time of posting, Greece has the following entry requirements. All travellers must...

  • Complete a Passenger Locator Form (PLF) before the day of entering Greece. 

  • Present a negative PCR test taken at least 72 hours before their arrival in the country.

  • Present a certificate of recovery if previously contracted and recovered from the virus.

  • Hold a valid certificate of their completed vaccinations (completed at least 14 days before travelling).

The EU Digital Green Certificate for EU residents will be in place as of 1st June and it's expected that other countries outside of the EU will generate their own version of a vaccination certificate.  

At a time when the world is slowly starting to travel again, a private yacht charter vacation is a perfect way to be safe on vacation with your own group of family or friends. Yachts are delivered clean and sanitized at the start of a charter so you can enjoy a worry free sailing vacation in Greece.
