Greece: entry rules for those vaccinated with Sputnik V

“Greece recognises the Russian vaccine Sputnik V, but the digital app does not read its QR code, Russians can present the printed certificate – and it will be accepted”, –  doctor Themistocleous told a briefing at the Health Ministry on Monday evening.

Many tourists go to Greece, but the app used to check their vaccination certificates does not recognise third country vaccines. This results in tourists not being able to be served in a restaurant or any other enclosed area.

But according to Themistocleous, Greece’s digital system is much more advanced than in some countries, so it can “read” more QR codes than in other countries.
