Greece currently allows travelers from EU countries except for Italy, Spain and Netherlands to visit, subject to a 14-day confinement. Visitors from Britain and other non-EU countries are currently barred from entering into Greece.
Tourism accounts for about 20% of the Greek economy and the government sees the sector as a major engine of its recovery from a lockdown that has brought business to a virtual standstill.
