Greek Tourism Minister Visits Sweden to Boost Tourist Flows

ATHENS — Tourism Minister Haris Theoharis, during a two-day visit to Sweden, made important steps to help boost tourism flows from Sweden to Greece.

Theoharis had a meeting with Sweden's Minister of Trade and Industry, Ibrahim Baylan. They discussed ways to facilitate travelling and simplify the necessary procedures for Swedish citizens who wish to travel to Greece in the near future.

"We had a very constructive discussion with Mr. Baylan. We have jointly considered possible solutions to practical issues, such as tests, recognition of certificates, etc., always with the aim of facilitating Swedish citizens who are looking forward to traveling to Greece. I believe that we have made significant progress and the results will soon be seen in practice. We must not forget that Sweden is the only Scandinavian country that has allowed and continues to allow travel to Greece and other countries, inside and outside the European Union, without imposing restrictions on tourists upon their return. Therefore, there is already a very good basis for a further and immediate increase in tourist traffic from Sweden to Greece."
