Greek Hotel Restaurants Will Be Closed at Christmas and New Year

December 16, 2020

ATHENS — Hotel restaurants will not be permitted to open on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, nor on New Year's Eve or New Year's Day, the General Secretariat for Commerce and Consumer Protection, a branch of the development ministry, announced on Wednesday.

Hotels will only be permitted to provide guests with room service in their hotel rooms, the announcement said.

A relevant joint ministerial decision will be issued within the next few days, it added.


Despite being unable to prevent smugglers in Turkey from sending refugees and migrants to Greek islands and the northern land border along the Evros River, Greece has made significant progress in dealing with human trafficking, according to a report by the Council of Europe's Group of Experts on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings (GRETA).
