Greece extends entry permission for 4 000 Russians per week until May 14
Greece extended again the quota for the entry of 4 000 Russians per week until May 14. According to the earlier statements of the Greek authorities, this is the last period of the quota: after May 14, restrictions on the entry limit for citizens of the Russian Federation should be canceled.
Since April 26, the seven-day quarantine has been canceled for travelers vaccinated against the coronavirus. Upon arrival, vaccinated Russians will need to present two documents: a negative result of a PCR test for coronavirus and a certificate of vaccination in English.
For unvaccinated tourists, the requirement to present a negative PCR test result, made 72 hours before their arrival in Greece, continues to be valid. There is also a requirement to undergo a 7-day quarantine upon arrival.
All arrivals must complete the electronic PLF (Passenger Locator Form) 24 hours before arrival, indicating their contact details in Greece. Travelers can be randomly tested for coronavirus upon arrival in Greece.
At the current stage, Russians can enter Greece exclusively by air and only via the airports of Athens, Thessaloniki, Heraklion and Chania (Crete) and the airports of the islands of Corfu, Rhodes, Kos, Mykonos and Santorini. Until April 24, only the airports of Athens, Thessaloniki and Heraklion were opened for Russians.
Greece has resumed the work of visa centers in the Russian regions. According to the Greek authorities, from May 14, all restrictions for Russian tourists will be lifted.
From May 15, the ban for travel within the country will be lifted, and Greece will officially begin to receive foreign tourists.
