Recall that earlier the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) made a statement that abolished the mandatory wearing of masks on air transport throughout the European Union. However, on routes to destinations where it was forbidden to be on public transport without masks, airlines continued to require passengers to use personal protective equipment. This still applies to Spain, which has not yet abandoned masks on airplanes.
In Greece, masks are still required to be worn in hospitals and public transport, on buses, metro and trams. This was announced by Greek Health Minister Thanos Pleuris in his televised address.

In April, Greece stopped requiring passengers to fill out Passenger Locator Forms, which made it much easier for tourists to enter the country.
Finally, Starting May 1, foreigners no longer need to show evidence of vaccination or negative tests.
