The rules for traveling to Greece including Rhodes, Kos, Zakynthos / Zante, Corfu and Crete
The rules for traveling to Europe have been the subject of much research and confusion over the past few weeks and months.
Today there is an update on the traffic light system of the countries on the green, yellow and red list.
But in the meantime, the Amber List includes Greece, and the government’s official guidance says, “You should not travel to any amber list country or area.”

The guidelines of the Foreign Office for Greece advise against “all but essential trips to Greece, except for the islands of Rhodes, Kos, Zakynthos, Corfu and Crete, based on the current assessment of the COVID-19 risks. “
Zakynthos is also known as Zante.

Upon arrival in England you must:
- Quarantine at home or wherever you will be for 10 days
- take a COVID-19 test on or before day 2 and on or after day 8
