Information on the harmonization of ferry services between the two countries appeared on the Country Scanner website. With the lifting of restrictions, ships of any country and cargo capacity can call at the ports of Rhodes, Patmos, Myrin, Lesvos, Kos, Skala and others.

The Turkish Maritime Chamber of Commerce outlined the requirements for those who choose to visit the Greek islands. All persons, regardless of their country of residence and vaccination status, must provide test results. Both PCR and rapid tests are suitable. The former is valid for three days and the latter for 24 hours.
