On May 14, 2021, Greece opened its borders to safe international travel. Protocols for travelers are as follows:

  • For unvaccinated travelers arriving in Greece, you are required to have proof of a negative PCR COVID-19 test result, taken no later than 72 hours before arrival. This test is mandatory for all unvaccinated tourists (including children over the age of 5).
  • For vaccinated travelers, proof of a negative test is not required. All travelers must have fully completed their vaccination (i.e., 14 days have elapsed since the last vaccination, depending on the doses required) and hold a vaccination certificate.
  • Before arrival, tourists must fill in the Passenger Locator Form (PLF) no later than 11.59 PM of the day before arriving in Greece.
  • Prior to departure, all travelers must ensure that they carry an acceptable form of certification of their health condition. Acceptable documents include:
    • A negative PCR molecular test result from a laboratory; the test must be taken up to 72 hours before entry.
    • A vaccination certificate issued by a certified authority.
    • A certificate of recovery from the SARS-CoV-2 virus infection issued by a public authority or a certified laboratory.
    • A certificate of a positive PCR molecular test result, confirming that the holder recovered from the SARS-CoV-2 virus infection, performed at least 2 months before arrival, and no later than 9 months before arrival.
