Restrictions on the entry of Russians in Greece were extended
The Greek authorities have extended the quota for entry into the country to 4 000 Russians per week until April 19. This is stated in the decree of the Cabinet. The previous permit was valid until April 4 inclusive.
It is possible that after May 14, the quantitative restriction on arrival in the country will be finally lifted. It is planned to accept Russian tourists on a large scale from this date. At least, this was previously stated by the Minister of Tourism of Greece Haris Theocharis. Now Russians can fly only through Athens, Thessaloniki and Heraklion. To do this, they must fill in an electronic Passenger Locator Form (PLF) on the government website travel.gov.gr.
The number of travelers arriving in the country is tracked thanks the PLFs. Upon arrival, it is necessary to present a certificate of a negative PCR test result in English, made no earlier than 72 hours before entering Greece.
Severe restrictions continue to act in the country, including a 7-day quarantine for arrivals. But, according to experts, they may be weakened after May 14. It is expected that the mandatory quarantine will be canceled and cafes, restaurants and museums will start working.
