The effect of Health and safety in Greece
Greece’s health care system has received very high marks from the World Health Organization (WHO), a branch of the UN.
Health care is free and universal for all citizens, as well as for all EU nationals upon presentation of an EHIC card (Formerly the E111 form). For non-EU nationals, only emergency care is provided for free.
Greece is a relatively safe destination for the traveller: the vast majority of people you interact with will be honest and helpful; however there is absolute carnage on the roads. The detailed information below is intended to forewarn travelers of risks which they have a small, though not zero, chance of encountering.
