Τέλος το PLF από 15 Μαρτίου

The Εxperts’ Committee at the Greek Ministry of Health recommended that the obligation of any person entering the country to fill out a PLF form be lifted as of 14 May 2021 when Greece opened its borders following the travel bans due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Up to the moment, everyone had to enter https://travel.gov.gr.

Abolishing the completion of a PLF simplifies the entry process for travellers, placing an emphasis on checking vaccination certificates.

According to statements by the Minister of Tourism, Mr Vassilis Kikilias, the fact that travel companies are now ready with their renewed health protocols and complete counter-measures for the pandemic along with all personnel in the tourism industry, makes the country safe and competitive. The country is ready to welcome the tourists to arrive.

Apart from the non-requirement of a PLF form, the increase in passenger capacity from 85% to 100% for tourist buses was also announced, entering into effect as of Saturday 5 March 2022, always with obligatory masks and the necessary natural air-circulation.
