Tourism Minister Haris Theoharis in an interview with the Athens-Macedonian News Agency (ANA) on Sunday sent a message of safe opening of the Greek tourism industry stressing that "Greece will host tourists safely."
"In Greece we will take care of every tourist as if he were a member of our family, but we have also proved that we are pioneers in the implementation of health protocols," he noted.
After making extensive reference to the Digital Green Vaccination Certificate, which will contribute significantly to increasing the flow of incoming tourists in the country, Theoharis left open the possibility of the arrival of foreign visitors to Greece before May 14.
"If everything goes well on the pandemic front, Greece will be able to receive tourists even earlier," he said, adding that the ministry was discussing the gradual opening of traveling from the EU, the US, the United Kingdom, Israel, Serbia and the United Arab Emirates.
Regarding the development of the tourist year, Theoharis expressed his optimism that 2021 will be better than the previous year and at the same time it will pave the way for Greece's development and recovery.
