Hopes raised for holidays in Greece this summer

Britons could return for summer holidays in Greece from May using a ‘quarantine passport’ if reports today prove accurate.

The tourism-reliant country is reportedly prepared to waive quarantine rules for tourists who can prove that they have been inoculated against Covid-19.

British tourists could be welcomed to Greece in May provided they can provide proof of inoculation against the virus.

Officials are said to be discussing what form of proof Britons will need to show that they have been vaccinated. Holidaymakers will also need to provide a negative test taken less than 72 hours before their arrival in Greece.

Greek-Led Crime Ring Busted for Stealing Millions From US Banks

A Greek-led criminal network that used shell companies to steal over $12 million from 50 US financial institutions has been dismantled following a cross-border strike co-ordinated by Europol.

The international operation, led by the Spanish National Police and the US Secret Service, resulted in the arrest of 105 suspects and the freezing of 87 bank accounts worth €1.3 million.

Eleven of those suspects were Greeks, who are thought to be the masterminds of the scam, as well as two Austrians, 23 Spaniards and one UK citizen.

Covid-19 vaccinations with the AstraZeneca vaccine will commence in Greece on Friday, 12 February for those aged between 60-65. Like various other EU countries, Greece has declared there is not enough data to say if the vaccine is effective for those aged over 65. No infor on whether or not it will be available on Kefalonia from that date.
