The Greek government has announced anyone arriving from a foreign country and seeking entry will be required to have a negative PCR COVID-19 test as of Nov. 11.

Key Points:

  • All travelers, except children under the age of 10, entering Greece through land and air will need to present a negative molecular test result performed within 72 hours of their entry.
  • The results should be in English and include the name and passport/national ID number of the traveler.
  • The testing requirement also applies to Greek citizens, permanent residents and essential and professional travelers.
  • Anyone without negative test results will not be granted entry into Greece.
  • In addition, all travelers must complete an online PLF form. Travelers may still be tested again at Greek borders.

Background: Since Nov. 6, Greece has been under a national lockdown because of rising COVID-19 infections. More information about the internal lockdown is available at
