Greece scraps mandatory Covid-test for travelers from USA, Canada, Australia

Greece’s Civil Aviation Authority modified its latest air directive (NOTAM) and scrapped the requirement of mandatory Covid-19 for travelers from the United States, Canada and Australia.

Travelers from these three countries will not longer have to present a negative Covid-19 test, provided they have a vaccination certificate or a certificate of recent illness.

The air directive for travelers from the USA, Australia and Canada provides that they may enter with one of the following documents:

a) Vaccination certificate valid for up to nine (9) months after the completion of the basic vaccination and without time limit for travelers who have received the booster dose.

b) Certificate of illness lasting up to one hundred and eighty (180) days.

c) Certificate of negative result, with the PCR method within the last seventy two (72) hours or alternatively to have been diagnosed negative in rapid test within twenty four (24) hours before their arrival in Greece.

The new measure went into force on Saturday, February 12, and will apply until February 21, 2022, the Civil Aviation said in a statement issued late on Saturday

The CAA recalls the other provisions for international travelers such as Passenger Location Form (PLF) and others as updated with a notam issued on February 6 (details here in English).
