from 1 July 2020 and until further notice, following relevant EU
decisions, third-country nationals, including USA citizens, are not
allowed to enter EU/Schengen Area.
Greek nationals and EU/Schengen Area citizens may enter Greece at any time, regardless if there are travel restrictions in place or not.
