All passengers of international flights to Greece will be obliged to fill the Passenger Locator Form (PLF) prior to their check-in, Greece’s Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) said in an air safety notice (notam) issued on Saturday, June 27, 2020.
The mandatory completion of the PLF by all passengers of international flights to Greece goes into effect as of today, June 27 and is valid until Monday, August 31, 2020.
“All travelers are required to complete their PLF at least 48 hours before their check-in and provide information about the departure airport, their address, time of stay in Greece and other details as specified with the form, ” CAA said in its statement.
“The passenger identification form (PLF) is a key element in Greece’s planning aiming to protect citizens and prevent the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic,” the CAA said.
The Notam is released ahead of the opening of all Greek regional airports on July 1, 2020.
You can find the form in English here. On the website of the Civil Protection are also instructions for those arriving to Greece by plane, by sea or via the land borders.

The Civil Aviation has changed the time to fill the PLF from 48 hours to 24 hours. The change is valid from July 9 until August 31,2020. See our KTG report here.
