Greek authorities have now reduced the mandatory quarantine time for incoming travelers to the country during the holiday season to only 3 days.
Government Spokesperson Stelios Petsas issued a statement today saying all travelers arriving to Greece from abroad between Friday, December 18 and Thursday, January 7, 2021, will be required to self-isolate for 3 days instead of 10.
In addition, travelers must submit a Passenger Locator Form (PLF) and a negative Covid-19 test result (PCR) performed up to 72 hours before arrival in Greece and also take a rapid Covid-19 test upon entry.
The quarantine rule for incoming travelers is but one of the measures Greek officials have undertaken in order to combat the negative effects of coronavirus (Covid-19). It goes without saying, any traveler who tests positive for the virus, will not be allowed into the country.
The announcement reiterated that all non-essential travel between Greek prefectures (domestic travel) is not allowed until 6am on January 7, 2021.
