Covid-19 Requirements for holidays to Greece

Travel requirements for your upcoming holiday look a little different to what you may have experienced in the past. In preparation for your holiday please ensure that you have read these requirements carefully and take actions accordingly.

You will not be able to travel without completing these forms and purchasing covid-19 tests in advance.

Even with additional safety measures in place an escape to the Med at the last minute is possible. Our Sales Travel Experts and After Sales Care Team are on hand 6 days a week from 9am to 5pm to help answer any further covid queries.

 

Flying to Greece

Mandatory Forms

There is one compulsory form for Greece;

  • The online Passenger Locator Form, Greece, which must be completed on a desktop device (not mobile) at least 24 hours prior to departure for yourself and all those travelling with you. Children can be added to a parent's form or have their own form, but they must be included. Completing the form(s) will provide you with a mobile phone QR code which will be checked at check-in and will need to be presented on arrival in Greece. You will receive the Quick Response (QR) Code by email shortly after you have completed the form. If any person is not listed on the confirmation email you must fill out a new PLF document for that individual. Please download the completed form(s) and have ready for Check In.

For help on how to fill out the Passenger Locator Form, Greece, please use our guide here.

Returning to England from 4th October 2021

From 4am on Monday 4th October 2021, the red, amber and green traffic light system is being scrapped in England and replace with a new "simplified system" for international travel - with a single red list. The new, single list, system will stay in place until at least the new year. Greece is currently 'amber'. 

  • COVID-19 PCR day 2 travel test required from a private provider in the UK

From "later" in October it is hoped you will be able to take an alternative, cheaper lateral flow test. The government is aiming to have this in place for when people return from half term breaks and will announce dates and further information in due course.

 

These requirements are applicable to all persons 18 years and above, who have NOT received a full vaccination (two doses of an NHS administered vaccine at least 14 days ago). There is no change to this policy after 4th October. 

  • Those persons returning to England must take two COVID-19 test whilst in their ten day quarantine after returning from Greece. 
  • COVID-19 PCR tests on day 2 and day 8 travel tests from a private provider in the UK.
  • Additionally, you can use the Test to Release scheme and do a further test on day 5. Provided your test result is negative you’ll be able to end your quarantine immediately. This Test and Release scheme is voluntary and applies to those quarantining in England only. You still need to take the compulsory test on or after day 8.
