The press service of the Association of Tour Operators of Russia (ATOR) informed potential tourists wishing to go on vacation to Greece about the change in the rules for entering the country.
The reason is the shortening of the validity period of certificates indicating the transferred coronavirus. Now, by decision of the Greek authorities, the document is valid for three months instead of the previous six.
However, this only applies to certificates issued after November 1, 2021 and not earlier than 30 days after the first test, which showed the presence of coronavirus. If the certificate was issued between 07.15-21.10 of this year, then its validity period is still 6 months or 180 days.
The rest of the conditions for entering Greece have not changed. All travelers from Russia over 12 years old (with or without vaccination) must have a negative PCR test or rapid antigen test. Upon arrival at the Greek airport you will have to without fail undergo a free express test for antigens.
