Greece travel rules and entry requirements – Derbyshire Live – Derby Telegraph

Greece has relaxed its entry requirements for travellers from outside the country. The scrap of passenger locator forms came into action ahead of Spring time as the country’s tourism industry gears up for Easter getaways.

Since March 15, travellers to Greece no longer need to complete pre-travel passenger locator forms before arrival giving them one less thing to worry about. Alongside this, pre-travel forms for travellers to England have been scrapped as of March 18.

The announcement has been welcomed by Brits planning spring getaways to Greece, which is a hugely popular destination among British holidaymakers. But what exactly are the current travel rules for Greece?

What are the current travel rules for Greece?

According to the UK’s official guidance, people travelling to Greece no longer need to complete a passenger locator form. British tourists aged five and over can gain entry to Greece by showing a valid vaccination certificate, a Covid recovery certificate, a negative PCR test result taken no more than 72 hours before arriving in Greece or a negative lateral flow test taken within 24 hours.

For your vaccination certificate to be valid, at least 14 days have passed since your second jab. If you’re over 18 and more than seven months have passed since your second jab, you’ll need a booster to be considered fully vaccinated, according to Gov.UK.

Greek authorities will accept the NHS Covid Pass as proof of vaccination. There is no requirement to wait for 14 days to pass after a booster vaccination before travelling to Greece.

Can you travel to Greece unvaccinated?

You can travel to Greece if you’re not fully vaccinated, provided you can prove that you’ve recovered from the coronavirus or are able to show proof of a recent negative test. A PCR test taken within 72 hours of arrival or a lateral flow taken within 24 hours will be accepted.
