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.”
