Changes to the conditions of entry to Greece – two amendments

The Greek Ministry of Tourism is reporting two important changes to the entry rules that tourists need to know.

On Tuesday, the Greek Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) extended the air travel directives (notams) for travelers arriving in the country from abroad, as well as for passengers on domestic flights to the Greek islands. The directives have been expanded to contain the spread of the coronavirus pandemic. Directive extended until Monday, June 21, 2021 at 6:00 a.m.

Two important amendments concern the process of monitoring the health of citizens arriving in Greece:

recognition of rapid tests: now all travelers arriving from abroad with a negative rapid test result (antigen test) will be allowed to enter the country without additional restrictive measures; an increase in the age indicator for children entering Greece regarding the availability of tests and certificates – instead of the current age of 6 years, 12 years is set. That is, for children under 12 years old, no medical documents and tests are required.

The amendments concern foreign citizens, including Russians, who come from countries included in the corresponding list. We remind you: if you have the necessary documents and by any means of travel, citizens of the EU and Schengen member states, Australia, North Macedonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the United Arab Emirates, the USA, Great Britain, Israel, Canada, Belarus, Bahrain, New Zealand can freely enter Greece, South Korea, Qatar, China, Kuwait, Ukraine, Rwanda, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, Singapore, Thailand, Montenegro.

All persons arriving in Greece are obliged fill out the electronic Passenger Locator Form (PLF) the day before arrival, providing contact details. Confirmation by the system of its receipt is a mandatory travel document. In the absence of PLF, the passenger is not allowed on the plane, and companies that let such a passenger in must send him back, assuming all transport costs. Air passengers should be prepared for the fact that they may have to take a test at a Greek airport and, if tested positive, be quarantined for 10 days.
