Obligatory Vaccination and Other Recommendations
No vaccinations are required before entering the country. For visitors at high risk of rabies infection, vaccination should be considered. A yellow fever vaccination certificate is required from all travelers over six months of age coming from infected areas.
Although Greece is geographically situated in southeast Europe, health precaution measures that apply in this country’s case are the same as those for traveling to Western Europe. Tourists visiting Greece in the summer must keep in mind that the sun radiation and the heat may be very intense.
