As of Tuesday, November 10th, those traveling abroad from Greece (outbound travelers) will also be obliged to fill out the PLF form at least 24hrs before departure. The Form can be found here.
Travelers out of Greece will be required to self-isolate for a given period after several European countries revised their travel restrictions due to a surge in Covid-19 infections this month. Please find at this link the list of designated clinics in Greece that offer Covid-19 RNA test service.
Effective from Sunday, January 24th, at Athens International Airport a testing facility from IATRIKON ATHINON will be available to perform Rapid tests between 08:30 - 17:00. The test outcome certificate will be provided in English. In order to avoid any potential delay, it is highly recommended to the passengers to be at the airport at least 4,5 hours before their scheduled flight.
Eclectic Greece provides protocol for air arrivals:
· Arrival at the entry gate. · Transfer to the area where the screening personnel are located. Travelers are requested to show their QR code either on their mobile phone screen or in print. If travel departure begins prior to the day of arrival, travelers are allowed to board after showing the confirmation email (and not necessarily the QR code which is scheduled to arrive during their trip.) · Depending on their QR code/confirmation, travelers are directed either to the screening area where they will be tested for the new coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 by a trained health team or to the exit (to baggage claim area or passport control). · Upon completion of the test, travelers are directed towards the exit (to baggage claim area or passport control). · The test results are expected to become available within 24 hours. During that time, passengers who are tested are advised to practise social distancing according to local guidelines and self monitoring for symptoms that could indicate COVID-19. In case of such symptoms, medical advice and/or contact with the National Public Health Organization (EODY) Operations Centre should be immediately sought. Only in case they test positive, the authorities will contact them and proceed with the health protocol in place. Otherwise, they may continue with their holidays, adhering to the general public health safety guidelines. · If travelers plan to have multiple stop-overs in Greece, they must declare this and report their initial destination and their travel itinerary for the next 7 days.
All travelers must comply with all of the necessary preventive hygiene measures (use of masks and physical distancing) according to local guidance.
