COVID TRAVEL INFORMATION & REQUIREMENTS
COVID RELATED TRAVEL INFORMATION & REQUIREMENTS FOR ENTRY INTO GREECE & RETURNING TO THE UK FROM GREECE
Entry to Greece
If you’re travelling from the UK, you will need:
Proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 at least 14 days before travel.
(The Greeks prefer this in printed form. Print from your NHS App)
You also need
To have completed a Passenger Locator Form (PLF) before arrival in Greece.
You can also travel to Greece if you have
Proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test, undertaken within the 72-hour period before arrival into Greece;
Proof of a negative COVID-19 rapid antigen test from an authorised laboratory, undertaken within the 48-hour period before your arrival into Greece
Greece will also accept proof of recovery from COVID-19 for entry purposes demonstrated via the NHS COVID Pass.
Returning to the UK
You must undergo a LTF (Lateral Flow Test) priced 25 euro per person. Results are received within 30 minutes by email. You can ask for a printed copy of your results. The hotels have a resident doctor who does the tests. Forms will be given out on arrival and we will arrange the tests for you.
For peace of mind why not bring a RAT (Rapid Antigen Test) with you. You can then test yourself before seeing the doctor.
At present you still need to book a Day 2 PCR. These can now be ordered from companies such as Randox https://covid.randox.com/day-2/ from £45. These are posted to your address.
If you have been to a Green or Amber (under UK rules) country in the Euro Zone in the past 14 days this does not prevent entry to Greece. The European has free movement between all its member states.
If you have been to a red country (referenced by the World Health Organisation) this must have been more than 14 days before travelling to Greece.
In most cases people with a British passport are having a straight forward cursory look at their passports in a quick and efficient manner before exiting border security.
