COVID-19 and Tourism in Greece

Greece has enjoyed a reputation as one of the prime tourism destinations in the world. Greece continues to be a preferred tourism destination, but no statistics can predict how exactly this situation will be affected due to COVID-19, a pandemic that has affected the whole planet. The 85% of the tourism movement takes place on May-October while the full months, are July, August and September which demonstrates intensively the seasonal characteristic of tourism in Greece. The government examines excessively the current circumstances and try to develop a plan to limit the consequences in the touristic sector and in economy in general. One part of the plan they are building has to do with the so-called “health passports” that would give authorities a way to be aware of the health status of visitors entering the country by air, by boat or by car, as the Minister of Health referred to speaking on Greek TV (Skai channel). Moreover, the Minister added that the country’s tourism season will most likely be limited to three months this year, from July to September. Many have questioned this tactic and its effectiveness but the progress of virus will demonstrate how the government will handle the overall situation in tourism.
