Useful Info When Traveling to Greece

As Greece has opened up to tourism again, there are a number of measures in place for international visitors and local residents to restrict the spread of Covid-19. The government plan for dealing with the disease is assessed and updated on the basis of the daily epidemiological data. We inform you that it is mandatory to wear a face mask in indoor spaces, including public transport means, taxis, and interurban coaches.

Passengers of international and domestic flights will have to show:

  • either a certificate of vaccination against Covid-19, issued by their country’s national authority, in the English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, or Russian language, on the condition that a fourteen (14) day period has elapsed since these passengers were fully vaccinated;
  • either a negative molecular test (PCR) for COVID-19, taken up to 72 hours before their entry. Upon their arrival, they may also be subject to random testing (rapid tests) as per the procedure described in the Passenger Locator Form (PLF), which is a document required to be submitted by all passengers of incoming international flights, one day before they arrive in Greece. Greek residents who are passengers of international flights leaving Greece are also required to fill in the Passenger Locator Form (PLF).
  • either a medical certificate of a COVID-19 infection, issued by a national authority / an accredited testing laboratory, in the English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, or Russian language. The certificate can be issued thirty (30) days after the positive test result and it is valid for six months.
