"There will be no ban and no difficulty in visiting our country or any other country whether vaccinated or not. Vaccination will not be a condition ", stressed the Minister of Tourism Haris Theocharis,…..
speaking in ERT1, from Madrid where he is for the meeting of the Executive Board of the World Tourism Organization.
Mr.. Theocharis pointed out that "we must focus on those who will not be vaccinated. In any case, this is the best way to protect the citizens of our country. The tests that we will have at our disposal and will use in the ports, at the entrance gates of our country, will be utilized in the rest of the population where there is a greater risk and there we will focus our controls ".
"It's a great opportunity, as I am in Madrid where the meeting of the World Crisis Committee for the Recovery of Tourism will take place, to present, as chair of the technical committee of the committee, our proposals and especially the proposal of the Prime Minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, to use vaccines to improve the way we move around ", argued the Minister of Tourism.
According to Haris Theocharis, "The Prime Minister has opened this conversation now because we have seen that the discussions take a long time in the European Union from the moment they open.. consequently, we have started it now so that we can reach a decision before the tourist season opens. Now we have to take care, to agree on these common rules, for the coordination that is necessary to have a successful tourist season. I assure you that this season will be better than the one of 2020 ".
