GREECE has eliminated the Passenger Locator Form (PLF) – making it easier for Britons to enter.
As of today, people coming to Greece do not need to fill out the PLF, regardless of their vaccination status.
This change means that vaccinated Britons can now enter Greece without having to undergo any form or test related to Covid.
In an announcement last week, Tourism Minister Vassilis Kikilias said the change would “simplify the immigration process for visitors”.
He said: “On the recommendation of the Expert Committee of the Ministry of Health, the completion of the PLF of visitors from all countries for entry into Greece is abolished from 15 March 2022.
“The abolition of the PLF simplifies the entry process for travelers, shifting the focus to the control of vaccination certificates.”
The UK is closely following in the footsteps of Greece, as ministers have stated PLFs are being phased out from 4 a.m. Friday.
The rule change means vaccinated Britons will soon be able to travel to and from Greece as they could before the pandemic – without any form or testing.
However, Greece is one of the European countries that Expiration date on vaccine certificatemeaning Britons who were vaccinated too long ago will be subject to stricter entry rules.
Adults who received a second dose more than seven months ago must have received a booster to enter Greece with ease.
If they have not had the booster vaccine, they will be considered unvaccinated and must follow the instructions for unvaccinated travelers.
Unvaccinated Britons aged five and over still need to present a negative Covid test result or proof of recovery to enter Greece.
Masks are still required in all interior spaces and vaccination certificates are also required to enter restaurants, shops and museums.
Other European countries are also easing Covid’s rules. Yesterday, France gives up strict Covid vaccine passports requirements, meaning anyone can enter bars, restaurants and cinemas, regardless of vaccination status.
In addition, France has also eliminated the mandatory use of masks – with the exception of public transport and care homes.
Spain may soon follow in the footsteps of France, as experts have predicted Masks can become a thing of the past for at least three weeks.
