Greece makes UK’s ‘safe list’
Greece is on the list of 59 countries and territories whose passengers will not have to quarantine on arrival in the UK from July 10. Greece was finally included on the “safe list” despite indications by the British Transport Secretary Grant Shapps earlier in the day that it would be excluded.
The list, which was made public by the British government yesterday afternoon, includes Cyprus, Spain, France, Italy, Germany and Turkey. The United States, Canada and Portugal were among the countries excluded from the list.
Greece has a ban on direct flights from the UK until July 15, when it will be reviewed according to the situation with the coronavirus pandemic in Britain.
