Greece wants UK tourists to come back from July 1

Greek tourism minister Haris Theoharis said the country wanted British tourists to return when it opens to European holidaymakers on July 1.

“The final decision, from the UK and our point of view, will be in place in the next few days and I’m hoping the announcement will be positive from both sides,” said Mr Theoharis, who indicated conversations with the UK Government over so-called “air bridges” were going well.

He told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme there was no need for those returning to the UK from Greece to be quarantined.

“The point is that Greece is a safe country – we have proven that during this crisis and we will continue proving this in the exit stages of the health situation,” said the Greek minister.

“We feel that the risk of someone contracting the disease in Greece is much lower than most of the countries in Europe and indeed the rest of the world.”

Put to him that there was no point in the quarantine from those returning from Greece, Mr Theoharis replied: “Correct.”
