Greece will allow tourists from Israel and Lebanon to visit in June.
As of June 15, Greece will allow visitors from Israel, Lebanon and several European countries for its peak summer tourism season, Reuters reported. The Mediterranean country’s economy relies heavily on tourism.
Israel and Lebanon are the only two countries on Greece’s list in the Middle East. Both nations have been praised for their responses to the virus.
Greece began a nationwide lockdown to limit the spread of COVID-19 in March, and has registered 2,909 cases. This number is relatively low in the European Union, according to Reuters.
