Greece abolishes mandatory PLF form for international arrivals



Greece is abolishing the requirement of international visitors to fill in a Passenger Location Form (PLF) before their arrival, in the latest move to ease Covid measures upon entering the country.

From March 15, passengers from all countries will no longer need to complete the online form up to 48hrs before they arrive in Greece.

This comes after the announcement last month that visitors from America, Canada and Australia would be joining those holding a European Union Digital Covid Certificate (available to citizens in EU member states, Schengen countries, the UK and more than 30 non-EU countries) in not needing to present a negative Covid test upon arrival in Greece.

Providing that passengers hold a valid vaccination certificate showing that they have been fully vaccinated within the last nine months or have received a booster dose (without time restriction), or hold a Covid-19 recovery certificate valid for 180 days after the date of issue, they can enter and move freely within Greece. The requirement is for passengers aged 5 and above.
