Given the potential danger of Botswana’s mutation, Greece is taking precautionary measures. South African travelers can enter our country only with the special permission of the local embassies, if there is a serious reason. Besides,
arriving in Greece from South Africa, Lesotho, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia and Eswatini, they must stay in quarantine for 10 days and do PCR three times – before the trip, upon arrival and during quarantine. All travelers must be vaccinated.
For Greeks entering Africa, all three measures are also required. The only relief is that they do not need a special permit to return home.
