Modified Covid-19 rules concerning travel to all mainland and island destinations in Greece by airplane, train and long-distance coach (KTEL) are coming into effect on Monday, September 13, 2021.
Anyone aged 12 or over will have to present either a negative PCR test taken up to 72 hours prior to arriving at one’s destination, or a negative rapid test taken within 48 hours ahead of arrival.
Rapid tests are performed exclusively in private diagnostic centers, private doctors and pharmacies at the expense of the traveler at 10 euros per test. Travelers are required to present the relevant document which is issued at gov.gr during check-in at each means of transport. The document’s authenticity is checked through the ‘Covid-Free’ app in combination with an identity check of the individual.
Anyone aged between 4 and 11 can travel by presenting a negative self-diagnostic test, which is available free of charge or can be purchased at the pharmacy , and which must be taken up to 24 hours prior to arriving at one’s destination.
People who have completed their vaccination and 14 days have passed since completion must present their vaccination certificate.
People who have been infected within the last 6 months must also present the relevant document, as they are considered the same as anyone who is inoculated with both doses of a vaccine. [amna]
