Frequently Asked Questions

Greece is ready to welcome the world. Here is how:

International flights are allowed into all airports in Greece.
Additional restrictions on non-essential travel from non-EU+ countries may be applicable, pending guidance from the European Union.

All air, land, or sea visitors will be subject to random tests upon arrival. Upon being tested, the passenger can move to their final destination. In the event of a positive result, they will be contacted and placed on 14-day quarantine, with expenses covered by the Greek state.

All visitors are strongly recommended to download the Visit Greece app (GDPR compliant) for free before or upon arrival in Greece.
Visitors should complete (ideally before travel) a Passenger Locator Factor form (PLF) with their contact details in Greece.

No particular safety or medical precautions are needed for a trip to Greece.

Travelers must understand and accept the local way of Greek life,  like:

  • – Water, especially on the islands, is in short supply. During the summer months, local authorities on some islands might restrict the main water supply to certain hours of the day.

  • – About noise: Restaurants, bars, and clubs can be too noisy, open-air, and open late. If you stay in the same village as a local fisherman, you may hear his exhaustless moped or braying donkey pass your house at dusk. A dog barking or a cockerel crowing can disturb as much as passing traffic. We have chosen our hotels and villas for their degree of seclusion and privacy, but if you are concerned about possible disturbances, please ask our advice on the most suitable properties.

  • – Most of our premises have a rural location, and it is possible, therefore, that there is a presence of “wildlife” in the area, such as ants, wasps, lizards, field mice, or rodents.

When traveling in Greece, you should take more than one means of payment with you (cash, debit card, credit card).

You should be able to pay for retail transactions with debit and credit cards, but occasionally, some vendors do not hold a machine for processing card payments.

You can withdraw cash at ATMs up to the daily limit imposed by your card issuer.

Avoid EURONET’s ATMs labeled “ATM,” as these privately owned machines charge higher withdrawal fees. Instead, it is better to use ATMs that belong to any Greek bank like Eurobank, Alpha Bank, Piraeus Bank, National Bank, or Bank of Creta.


You can dial the European emergency number 112 in Greece for the police, ambulance, or fire brigade, or dial:

  • 100 for police

  • 199 for the fire brigade

  • 166 for emergency medical service

  • 108 for Coast Guard

  • 197 for emergency social assistance

  • 116 000 for missing children

If you’re the victim of a crime, have been arrested, or are affected by a crisis abroad, contact your closest Embassy.
