Despite the fact that vaccinations proceed satisfactorily, Covid-19 is still here, and that is why there are health protocols still in effect for the protection of travelers over the age of 5. Therefore, we have outlined for you certain key facts you need to be aware of before your arrival and of course, during your stay.
The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) announced the new flight instructions with the conditions of entry into Greece to limit the spread of COVID-19 disease
From 15 March 2022 onwards, travelers visiting Greece are no longer required to fill out the Passenger Locator Form (PLF). Additionally, as of Sunday 01 May 2022, and for as long as the epidemiological data allow so, all travelers arriving in Greece, regardless of their country of origin, are no longer required to display a valid certificate of vaccination or recovery from COVID-19, or evidence of a negative test result from SARS-CoV-2 infection (PCR or Rapid Antigen test).
A simplified PLF remains in operation, the completion of which is OPTIONAL, for the sole purpose of enabling the traveler/family to issue an EU Certificate of the negative or positive COVID-19 test result. The official portal of the Hellenic Republic to complete the simplified PLF is travel.gov.gr.
For your own protection and the protection of other people around you, please remember to always wear a non-medical mask in public spaces (indoors and outdoors), keep social distancing rules of 1.5 m as much as possible, and use antiseptics or wash your hands thoroughly with soap.
We, at Athens Walking Tours, follow all health protocols and comply with all safety measures since day 1 of the Covid-19 pandemic. Our guides use protective masks at all times, perform contactless temperature tests, use antiseptics at the check-in points and during the tours, and provide only sanitized earsets. It goes without saying that we apply contactless procedures wherever it is possible. We have also made sure that you will enjoy not only a safe but also a risk-free experience, and have updated accordingly our refund policy, in order to facilitate you further during these challenging times.
We wish you a pleasant and safe trip and an unforgettable stay in beautiful Greece.
