The perception of Greece as a tourism destination is deteriorating in the British, German and American markets as a result of the refugee and migration crisis, an Internet survey has found.

The survey was conducted by independent British firm Censuwide for the Association of Hellenic Tourism Enterprises (SETE).

Its first vice-president, Yiannis Retsos, said on Wednesday that while Greece remains a safe destination in the minds of potential visitors, the migration problem is evolving into a serious factor that is dissuading tourists from visiting the country.
