IMPORTANT: As of Thursday 12 November, Greece has been removed from the UK's travel corridor. The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office currently advise all but essential travel to the country excluding the islands of Rhodes, Kos, Zakynthos, Corfu and Crete.
All visitors to Greece are required to complete the Passenger Locator Form (PLF) prior to departure and random testing will take place on arrival. Please ensure that you have completed this questionnaire a minimum of 24 hours prior to departure. It is your responsibility to do so as will be any costs incurred for new flight tickets and amendments to your travel plans should the form not be submitted. Airlines are denying boarding to those who fail to provide evidence of their submission and their unique QR code.
You can find further information about the Passenger Locator Form (PLF) here.
In addition, travellers are required to undergo a PCR swab test for the Coronavirus (Covid-19) within 72 hours of departure. Only travellers who carry a certificate of a negative RT-PCR test result will be allowed by the border authorities to enter the country. The certificates should be written in English and bear the name and passport/national ID number of the traveller.
Please also ensure that you are familiar with the new rules for travel within Europe from 01 January 2021. A synopsis of the changes can be found in our dedicated blog.
