Now this question was a burning topic when Greece Tourism shared that you can finally travel to Greece starting May 14.
In this post we will be covering about everything you need to know about travelling to Greece in Summer 2021 if you are planning to.
When can you travel to Greece in 2022?
In short here is the answer
Greek tourism minister Harry Theoharis has announced that the country is opening its borders on May 14. He said that all persons who have been vaccinated or who test negative could travel to Greece this summer.
For the detailed explanation and things you need to know you have to read further.
Now the Greece Tourism Ministry has currently share that the tourist who are planning to come to Greece should be either vaccinated, or have antibodies, or test negative. All tourists will be subject to random testing
Tourism is one of Greece’s primary income providers, which has made the country call on the EU executive bodies for vaccination certificates all over Europe to make travelling without restrictions possible.
What all things which you need to take care?
Along with the negative test report one other thing which is really important when you are travelling to Greece is the PLF form which is the Passenger Locator Form and you have to submit that.
What is PLF?
The Passenger Locator Form (PLF) is a key element in the planning. All travellers must complete their PLF until the day before entering the country and leaving the country, providing detailed information on their point of departure, the duration of previous stays in other countries, and the address of their stay while in Greece. In case of multiple stays, they are required to provide the address for the first 24 hours at least. One PLF should be submitted per family.
- Travellers will receive a confirmation email upon submission of the PLF.
- Travellers will receive the PLF with their unique Quick Response (QR) code on the day of their scheduled arrival in Greece and will be notified via email (the QR code will be provided in a link in the confirmation email).
- Travellers boarding or embarking on the previous day of the arrival will be allowed to do so upon showing the confirmation email, since they will receive their QR code during their flight or voyage.
For you assistance you can submit the form by Start Here (travel.gov.gr)
