Protocol for Arrivals in Greece: All Travelers Must Fill Out a Passenger Locator Form

Passengers arriving to Greece by air, sea or road, are now required to complete a Passenger Locator Form (PLF) at least 48 hours before entering the country.

The measure comes prior to the country opening all its airports to international flights on July 1 and aims to protect citizens and tourists and prevent the spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19).

All travellers are obliged to complete their PLF at least 48 hours before entering the country, providing detailed information on their point of departure, the duration of previous stays in other countries, and the address of their stay while in Greece. After submitting their PLF form, each traveller will receive a personal QR code, which must be presented, either via mobile phone or on hard copy, upon their arrival in Greece’s airports.

Following are Greece’s protocols for arrivals by air, sea and road, as announced by the General Secretariat for Civil Protection.

Protocol for passengers arriving by air

  • Arrival of passengers at the arrival gate.
  • Transfer to the area where screening personnel are located and check the unique quick response (QR) code each passenger shows on their mobile phone screen or printed QR form.
  • Screening personnel will direct passengers, depending on their QR code, either to the screening area or to the exit (baggage claim area or passport control). Until the screening results become available, passengers tested for the new coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 by a trained health team are obliged to self-isolate at the address of their final destination as declared on their passenger locator form (PLF). Upon completion of the screening, they are directed towards the exit.

All passengers must comply with all of the necessary preventive hygiene measures (use of masks and physical distancing).

Protocol for passengers arriving by sea

  • Arrival of incoming passengers on foot at the main entry gate.
  • Incoming passengers arriving in vehicles are directed to the special entry gate.
  • All passengers are transferred to areas where screening personnel are located and check the unique quick response (QR) code each passenger shows on their mobile phone screen or printed QR form.
  • Depending on passengers’ QR code, screening personnel either direct them to the screening area or allow them to enter the country. Until the screening results become available, passengers who are tested for the new coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 by a trained health team are obliged to self-isolate at the address of their final destination as declared on their passenger locator form (PLF). Upon completion of the screening they are allowed to enter the country.

All passengers must comply with all of the necessary preventive measures (use of masks and physical distancing).

Protocol for arrivals at land borders

  • Arrival of persons at the checkpoint. All persons entering the country must submit a completed passenger locator form (PLF) upon their arrival.
  • Passport and customs control are carried out and each incoming person’s unique quick response (QR) code is checked on their mobile phone screen or on the printed form with their QR code.
  • Depending on their code, incoming persons are directed by security personnel either to the screening area or allowed to continue their trip to their final destination in the country, receiving instructions from the border personnel, concerning, in particular, required action in case they develop symptoms of respiratory infection, in which case they must immediately contact the National Public Health Organization (EODY) Operations Centre. If arriving persons plan to have multiple stop-overs in Greece, they must declare this and report their initial destination and their travel itinerary for the next 7 days. EODY Mobile Health Units (KOMY) will operate round the clock at land border checkpoints.

    Until the screening results become available, arriving persons who are tested for the new coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 are obliged to self-isolate at the address of their final destination as declared on their passenger locator form (PLF). Their data is entered into the EODY information system, which is linked to the COVID registry to facilitate contact tracing in the event someone tests positive. Upon completion of the screening, they enter the country, receiving instructions concerning self-isolation until the results of their screening are announced.

All passengers must follow all of the necessary preventive hygiene measures (use of masks and physical/social distancing).

The Passenger Locator Form (PLF) and detailed instructions can be found here.

Please note: For clarifications on entrance to Greece as of July 1, travelers are advised to contact the closest Greek Embassy or consulate prior to travel or consult directly with the airport.

    Hi
    I’m confused. Is it one form per family or per person in the family? I have added my own and my husband’s name but is this enough?

  5. Nikolas Antonas Reply

    Hey Guys. Just wanted to add my experience of filling out the protocol form for my Mother a xouple of weeks ago before her trip to Kavala, and today before my trip to Athens on Friday with my wife and son.

    First thing to say to everyone needing to fill one out or is waiting for the QR code…relax. Whatever the pre-ordained negative view is about the Greek government and this process you have (or not) this form is there for a very legitimate reason, and has been built to keep all sides happy and safe.

    If you are getting error messages, there is a real reason and is usually a mistake you have made. When I was filling out my Mother’s form, and entering the village she was staying, I recieved an error code 19 times. Why? Because I was entering the village name in Greek – Nea is New, and the form needs it all in English as that is the language we chose to write in.

    So, if you are getting error messages, be diligent about spelling and the correct numbers for post codes.

    If you do spell something incorrect after it is accepted, then you need to log in and have the “homepage” open in your browser (mobile or otherwise – chrome seems to be just fine for me). In the top right there are three lines. Click them, and click “My Dashnoard” on the dropdown. You’ll see the first page of your completed form, and there will be a pencil sign in the bottom right corner. Click that to amake amendments. You’ll be shown your original form, as you filled it in, page by page, with your selections and written answers in there. Just amend and then submit again.

    You will get the QR code sent to you at midnight the night before you travel so, ie. 6 hours before a 6am flight, and so on.

    I went with my Mother to the airport, and the desk clerk checked it over, and waived her through.

    For us, I have completed the form for myself and my wife, and we are travelling on Friday. I will come back and comment again regardless of a positive or negative experience at the airports on departure and arrival, but all I can say is that if you have filled the form in correctly and have a confirmation eMail, you will receieve the QR code, as it’s an automatic process dependent on your travel date.

    If all the details are correct, you will have no issues. My Mother didn’t, and I don’t anticipate us having problems either.

    Safe travels, one and all.

      Hi! Is the system down by any chance? I can’t seem to be able to get registered. It keeps giving me error messages.

    • Dave Hayter Reply

      Hi there,did you fill in the Locater Form for your Mother using your email address & mobile phone number.
      The reason I ask is that I have a friend coming to stay with me in Corfu & they are having problems logging on to the locator site.
      I am thinking of filling in the form for them on my link which is active.
      The only problems being the form will have my email & phone no on it,I suppose this will be ok as there staying with me.
      Was Just going to download completed form & email it to them,any ideas if this is ok anyone.

        My partner didn’t add me on the form!!
        What can we do??

  9. Sarita Reply

    Here’s our experience: I misunderstood the procedure & we filled in the form too late (midnight passed whilst we were in the process), our travel day (today) was grey so we chose a day later (tomorrow). We read that as long as you had the email showing you had applied for the QR code you can fly but we got stopped by Transavia just before boarding because we didn’t have the QR code. We were given a new flight number & applied for the code immediately. We’ll head for the airport tonight hoping that we’ll get the code on route and will be able to get on the 4am flight tomorrow morning (no extra charge btw). If not the next flight is Wednesday…then with the 1 day quarantine when you arrive, we’ll have lost a few days holiday. So don’t make our mistake!

    • Marie Dontas Reply

      Hi Sarita, I have done the same thing. I am supposed to be flying at 3 today but put filled in that I am flying tomorrow. Can i still fly? What happens know? Should I go to the airport?

      • Voula Reply

        Hi! I did exactly the same mistake.. what happens in this case? I filled in the form this morning and I arrive to my destination at 20.00 in the night. Is there a change a get the code till then? If not, what happens? Thank you for any feedback.

    Good afternoon. My family and I are traveling to Corfu on 16th August . Obviously we have to fill in the plf form. It clearly states that we only need one form per family/household. However I a, seeing that people are having issues putting more than two adults and two children in the application. We are two adults and four children of the same family. Are we able to use just the one form?

    Hi guys. I am trying to fill PLF but I have a connection flight in Amsterdam so : Dublin-Amsterdam-Athens.
    When entering info in PLF asks you only for 1 flight. Which one should I put? Dont want to put only the Amsterdam one cause it will look like I come from there when my origin is Dublin. Also only allows to input “internal connection” not sure if can use those fields for the amsterdam connection. Thanks!

    Hello,

    I was supposed to travel to Greece with my boyfriend this afternoon, but we made a mistake and only filled one protocol with his informations, and my name as a travel companion. We thought that was enough and that we needed 1 code for both of us. As we received the code last night, we realized that we both needed one for ourselves and I have been reading the comments here to find some answers of people who already faced this problem. Because I found out that there is a 500 euros fine and that you can be denied entrance if you don’t have your code I decided not to take the useless risk and book another flight 48 hours later so that I could fill the form and get my own code.

    I see in the comments that most people don’t understand that you will get your code the night before your flight (at midnight) and that even if you don’t have it before your flight the most important thing is if you have the confirmation that you filled the protocol with the right information at least 48 hours before your flight. Then they will see that you followed the procedure and if you get the code late (which is unlikely to happen) then it is not your fault. Also, wether you get tested or not at your arrival at the airport you should still remain very careful and wear a mask, social distance ect…

    I think we should remember that it is a privilege to go on vacation, that we should be aware that the vacation we plan could be cancelled because of various reasons, and that if we are not able to take this risk we should just stay home and enjoy vacations in our own regions.

    I hope this was helpful ! stay safe ! and enjoy Greece !

    • Cerys Reply

      Hey, I’m just checking how this went?

      I’m currently filling in my PFL form, and the first page makes you tick a box saying that ‘I agree to submitting only one PFL per family/household’. My housemate and travel companion has already completed the form, but all the advice seems to point towards you having to do one each, and since we’re not relatives I’d rather be on the safe side.

      Is anyone aware of how to proceed? I’m probably just going to fill another one in just in case to be on the safe side…

      • Hilary Reply

        I can only add 2 family members to PFL application and then it allows me to add non-family members. Is this right? I would assume all 4 family names would need to be listed on one PFL application.

    • Romintė Niedvaraitė Reply

      Thank you very much! We were just wondering how many forms to fill, when its stated one for family..! Thank you, possibly saved our Hollidays!

  15. Ionut Reply

    I’m from Romania and we want to travel to Greece for our summer holiday.
    To enter Greece you need a negative covid test ran in the last 72 hours. There is a big impediment as Romania test clinics take 72 hours to give the results to the test, thus making it to the border exceeds the 72 hour requirements of the Greek regulation.
    It is not specified in what form the negative results should be – paper or e-mail with documents containg all relevant information. Is it acceptable a negative result in digital form? via e-mail given by the medical institution and having all required information. Or is it just paper?
    Having it digital will solve the 72 hour issue as after takeing the test you can drive and by the time you reach the greek border you have the results in good time.
    Many thanks,
    Ionut

    good morning
    our return flight in Greece is scheduled for tuesday 21st July, Frankfurt – Athens

    following the instructions and having a proactive attitude i tried to fill in the form from today 16th July given that in instructions provided the only time limitation stated was the form to be filled at least 48hr in advance of flight…

    cutting the long story short…

    the https://travel.gov.gr site is not accesible from PC brower but only from mobile… spoke to Greek Consulate in Frankfurt and they told me that from their PCs can enter the site..(interesting customer orientation attitude!)

    i am trying to submit the form via my Iphone browser and the message receiving is the same “unfortunately there was an error submitting your form, try again…”

    is it a time limitation in terms of submission i.e. to be 48hr in advance of the flight but not >that 4 days???

    no one knows – Aegean call center simply doesnt exist any more… not to mention the accountability of greek consulate…

    any feedback will have been highly appreciated

    RE-POSTING as previously sent as a reply by mistake. We have just completed the PLF document for a friend in his late 60s who does not have a smartphone (he does have a mobile phone but the old type) or an email address. The protocol for arrivals in Greece says, at the top of the form, ’You will receive the PLF document with the QR code on the day of your scheduled arrival in Greece (at midnight)’. I assume they mean the early hours of the morning on the day of departure, so by 00.01 on the day of departure(19 July) not 24.00 (midnight) which as he is flying mid-afternoon would be AFTER arrival. Please can anyone confirm this? I assume this is just bad wording or bad translation but it is confusing and is causing anxiety. We will definitely have to print this for him as he will not be able to receive it on his phone. Has anyone else had this problem? Thanks for any reply!

    If i need to fly urgently in one day to Austria and back and i have no time to fill the form because it should be made 48 hrs before. What shall i do ?
    Passenger has Greece passport.

    other story its 20 hrs before flight and we dont have any code from the goverment. What shall we do?
    maybe you could provide to us any contacts to connect regarding this problem?

    Do you have an onsite testing setup in Athens for passengers, who are not able to make the 48 hours timelimit for the Passenger Locator Form ?

    Could be a booking within 24 hours prior to arrival or a technical issue with the website.

        A recent update has been released today for the form stating that submission is required 24 hours prior to departure instead of 48 hours, so all PLFs already completed and sent will no longer be processed and will have to be resumed from 24 hours prior to departure.

        • Helen Birtle Reply

          I think it means they are giving people more time to complete one.i.e last minute flyers. Instead of having to complete one upto 48 hrs before – its now possible to complete one as late as 24 hrs before travel. Seems very sensible of the Authorities!

  42. Ray Reply

    We are Crete fans and have been visiting the island for the past 5 years. If I understand the entries here correctly, then I have the following risk when traveling to Greece: If the Corona test result of a tourist is positive, every fellow passenger on the plane seated two rows in front of or behind this Tourist will be trapped and quarantined for 14 days in Greece in a Hotel provided by the government.
    I don’t want to pay 3,200 EUR for a trip to take this risk. It doesn’t make sense to me!
    I can understand that the Greeks want to protect themselves. It would have been better if they had asked every tourist for a current proof / negative test on entry. I wouldn’t mind. But I don’t want to take the risk of being quarantined through no fault of my own.

      this is from the FAQ section of the Greek government travel site……

    Hello,
    I hope you can help me.
    We fly to greece on July, 13th, for holiday.

    I filled out the PLF last Tuesday.

    While filling out the form I have to enter data like my passport number.
    A few “pages” later on that form I can enter data for my family. So I filled out the names and ages for my two kids an my wife.

    Now I’m concerned if that is enough or if my wife should fill out the PLF separately (becaus I didn’t have to enter her passport number, e.g.).

    Do you know if filling out the PLF once for me and my whole family who travels along with me is enough?

    Not that we arrive in Greece and have problems 🙁

    Thanks for your help.

    Am traveling to Greece on 18/720 and I did my application for PLF on 2/7/20.i did receive a mail for confirmation but not the barcode.should I write to them again two days before my travel or I did the application too early?anyone who can help with a good answer I will appreciate..!

  48. Maria Reply

    So, let’s provide some information that I would have liked to receive before my travel to Greece.

    I travelled from southern Sweden to Greece through Denmark. The QR code was received one day before my departure.

    Upon arrival in Athens, the QR code was not scanned electronically, a police looked at the code below the QR and said go straight. Go straight meant to do a COVID test. It took basically 5 min for the test to be done. They stick a cotton-ish tops in your mouth and swab. That’s it. No information on self isolation or anything. I needed to actively call the National COVID helpline in Greece to as I for that protocol. The official website where you submit your PLF application say that “self isolate until the results become available”. After arrival I received a text stating that “in case you did a COVID year you need to self isolate for one day”. The National helpline said that if the results are positive somebody will contact you within 24 hours. If they are negative, nobody will contact you”. So, basically I have a couple of hours left of my self isolation period and then, if I haven’t heard anything from them, I’m free to leave the house. However, I think that precise guidelines would be helpful on this since I actively needed to call the authorities here in Greece in order to receive information if I will be contacted with the results.

    If we knew it before, I had cancelled our trip to Chersonissos area. We arrived on 1st of July and everything went fine on arrival. After scanning our QR’s we were all directed to the baggage belt and proceeded to our rented house. Yesterday evening I received a phone call,that two passengers on the same flight have been tested positive and today a shuttle arrived for our mandatory relocation to a quarantine destination. We are now really p* because that means, that even if you are not a risk candidate with full health they can quarantine anybody at any time. Our host tried to help us because we rent the same house since over 10 years and during this time Mikos has become a real friend. He said, that he fullfills every condition from the greek government including a dedicated doctor, but he couldn’t assist us in any manner to avoid relocation. We are now trapped and I’d like to share our experience to other people. I understand the security concerns to protect the local people, but they should inform about all possible scenarios in advance. We thought everything is fine, if you can leave the airport directly but that’s sadly not true.

        I have heard that at about 30 passengers from my flight have been relocated.. Don’t know whether it’s true, but this might match if the two rows rule is correct. If that’s true, every positive tested passenger also puts the next two rows in front of him and also the two behind him in a really absurd situation.

          • Alex

            Maria, of course you have to worry about being tested again through the PLF procedure, because this means that you must spend your vacation in self isolation until the results are communicated (in hopefully 24 or 36 hours).
            In other words a private test in advance does not make any sense unless you think you might be positive.

        • Andre Reply

          Alex, look at the PLF page, there is a Q&A section. If you have a molecular test not older then 72 hours it could be accepted.

      • Anne Reply

        Sorry you can’t say that. Even with a negative test you still have the risk of quarantine because of other people being positive in same flight. This is exactly what happened to David.
        I am use to come in Crete every summer for 1 month. With these conditions, I will cancel my trip. It is unfair from greek government to say Greece is welcoming tourist with such conditions. I understand they want to protect greek people but they can manage differently ans take example from other countries

  52. Petres Reply

    If the screening selection is based on algorithms, the should inform about a screening BEFORE departure. So every tourist can decide on it’s own, if he wants to wait for the test result on arrival, or cancels the whole trip.because I guess that the algorithm sorts out risk groups, it would also be a benefit for the health protection of the wonderful Cretan people, because most of the risky screening clients will stay at home anyway, if they know in advance that they will be tested. If you can’t arrive relaxed, the vacation can’t be good as well. I have spent totally over 200 days in Crete, but I guess we will cancel our trip from 8.7 until 3.8. for this reason.

      We have just completed the PLF document for a friend in his late 60s who does not have a smartphone (he does have a mobile phone but the old type) or an email address. The protocol for arrivals in Greece says, at the top of the form, ’You will receive the PLF document with the QR code on the day of your scheduled arrival in Greece (at midnight)’. I assume they mean the early hours of the morning on the day of departure, so by 00.01 on the day of departure not 24.00 (midnight) which as he is flying mid-afternoon would be AFTER arrival. Please can anyone confirm this? I assume this is just bad wording or bad translation but it is confusing and is causing anxiety. We will definitely have to print this for him as he will not be able to receive it on his phone. Has anyone else had this problem?

    It is very likely that the server is overloaded.
    We are flying in 48 hours and I couldn’t fill out the form so far.
    Anybody in the same situation? Any Hints? what to do? otherwise
    I will fill out the information on a Paper and take them with me.

      Yep, we have several groups filled PLF – and yesterday they started receiving QR codes. And they often ending in “mail spam box”.
      We also found it is not related to WHEN you filled form, but to date, when you declared border crossing.
      Code is received usually 1-2 days prior to your declared border crossing. So, based on that I should receive mine tomorrow 2. July, or day after a s my crossing is 4. July.

    The whole passenger locator form (PLF) process is a joke and it has several gaps. It does not match all types of tourists and way of entrance e.g. campers etc. The system has problems and many friends complain that they did not receive the QR badge. It is a discrimination that the Hellenic government knows who is qualified for the test but not the person itself. What about families? how many days the test will place to show the results? Who wants to destroy his or her holidays living with stress. This is not borders borders opening. I already canceled my trip. I will travel somewhere else which is more tourism friendly.-

    Hello,

    I think the reality is far more complex than the PLF form. Instructions read “Until the screening results become available, passengers tested ……… are obliged to self-isolate at the address of their final destination as declared on their passenger locator form (PLF).”

    If I land in Athens and I stay one night, in order to take the boat the next day to an island (which in fact is my final destination) Or if I have a car rental, again having stayed in Athens one night, and the following or the same day I drive to the final destination? Or if I have a boat the same day? Or a sailing boat? What happens? Can I self-isolate in Mykonos after taking the boat to reach the final destination? 🙂

    Also the PLF allows to declare only two locations. Is island hoping allowed? Or backpacking around Greece?

    Also the PLF does not allow any correction.

    I really think it will be a mess.

    If you have any answers to the questions..

    Reading through some of the comments on this thread it really is quite clear that so mnay peoples attitudes have not changed and nothing has been learnt or taken onboard through this whole terrible situation.

    If you don’t like or agree with the proposals and procedures in place then simply stay at home and don’t travel until you feel safe to. It seems that people are still putting their holiday as number one priority over the safety, health and wellbeing of others, particulalrly in countries such as Greece where we have maintained some of the lowest figures globally.
    We want nothing more than to welcome tourists, but if you are not willing to abide by the rules and regulations then please do not come. Simple as that.

    With regard to the PLF form – worked fine for my partner with no issues at all.

    • Michael Schneider Reply

      RB, the most people here will come to Greece to spend there holiday, because the love your country and they need a little more happiness at this situation (sorry about my English). The Problem is, i planned my holiday at the end of last year and if i would cancel this vacation (will start on 7th of July to Kriti) i have to pay 3000€ for nothing. All that we want is a clear procedure to come to Greece. And not “we open the country to all visitors and than we got a beta procedure, that is not fixed”. If you have little children and every day you get a new information or NO information it is incredible for a family. So i read the messages here and nobody gets there QR Code. Nobody tells the visitors what will happen if you arrive at the holiday location without QR Code. I did the whole procedur twice until i get an confirmation Email. All we want is a clear information for my money that i will spent in your country. I have to go to work for my money and have only one holiday in a year.

    What about passengers arriving by sea on a cruise ship – let’s say from another country to Katakolo and the ship will stay there only 6-7 hrs.

    IF they are checked and obliged to self-isolate at the address of their final destination (cruise ship) until the screening results become available, obviously, they will not be able to disembark upon arrival and go on an excursions that depart in the morning.
    Bearing in mind above, will there be different procedure for passengers on cruise ships?

      We are also struggling to fill out the form and also on camping deck, anyway even if you have a cabin or seat, the numbers are only known when you get on the ferry and not beforehand. We debark at Corfu and it is not even possible to select it as a port of entry on the form. The ferry company tells us to wait until they fix the form and more or less told us that we should not worry if we cannot complete it this week because they heard from the port authorities that the database is not even working properly yet and no QR codes are given out. The same thing was told to our friends by their travel agency (they travel by plane and have a package holiday coming up next week). I frustrates me that such an ill-prepared buggy form & system was introduced at the last minute and causes so much stress to those who want to support the startup of Greek tourism.

We do not and would not welcome selfish inconsiderate travellers such as yourself. You clearly see yourself as being above any regulations to protect the safety of others and for your own benefit.

    The LPF form and all the other available information lacks the group of people who will arrive Greece by a pleasure boat. There are quite many sailors waiting for the sea borders to open at 1st of July as stated on 15th June by Greek Foreign Ministry. When the LPF form has no possibility to chose the option ”Entering the country by pleasure yacht” one can’t send any information prior 48 hours of arrival as requested. Also the ”Visit Greek App” seems not have published yet…

        when did you filled in the form?

  131. Irina Reply

    “at least 48 hours before entering the country” and lets say if I buy the ticket for tomorrow ? I can not flight? And if I come without this form, what will happen ?

    • Sylvie Reply

      One form per family or per adults ?? Not clear..anybody knows?

      • Hilary Reply

        I can only add 2 family members to PFL application and then it allows me to add non-family members. Is this right? I would assume all 4 family names would need to be listed on one PFL application.

    Unfortunately your link to the PLF is not working!

      It is working for me. Try again.

      Try a different browser. It doesn’t appear to work with Explorer but it works with Firefox.

      Bei mir öffnet sich die Seite “Passenger Locator Form” nicht bzw. ich komme nicht auf den Link. Wir reisen zwar erst im September (so o´hoffe ich) aber ich würde mir die richtige Seite gerne schon vorab ansehen. Hat jemand einen direkten Link ? Danke für die Hilfe.

    Is thisfor real? We would go to greece onthe 1st of july and can’t find anything about how serious this is. Maybe it’s just a way to steal data?

    • Robin Reply

      Hi Maren!
      The article written here sounds very accurate, and no it’s not an attempt to steal data. First of all, the form is simple and doesn’t require the download of a digital app that tracks your every move. Second, Greece is highly dedicated to the safety of it’s citizens, workers, and guests. So really, this is a simple request to know your location prior to confirmation of a negative swab test. Rest assured, these requirements are made with every citizen and tourist in mind.

      Seriously? The only data they will keep are numbers of visitors, for statistical purposes. However, this is for COVID-19 in the event a visitor is found to be infected for him/her to assist them in tracking individuals he/she interacted / came in contact with to get tested, in the important effort to prevent the further spread of this contagious virus within her borders and also in any other country they will travel to after visiting Greece.

    The above article states that, “Until the screening results become available”, passengers who arrive in Greece by air are “obliged to self-isolate at the address of their final destination”. Can anyone tell me how long it takes for screening results to become available and therefore, how long would passengers be expected to self-isolate?

      Hi Rosemary,

      Heads up, last I heard Greek officials stated the test takes 24 hrs or less for results. So basically, a 1 night stay by your airport of entry is required. Make sure to confirm before you travel. Have a great trip! 🙂

      • Rosemary Gillon Reply

        Thanks for the info Robin.

    • George Reply

      Only 24 hours after checking in to your final destination (home, hotel etc)

    In my opinion the procedure with the tests is discriminatory for the tourists. If you are randomly chosen for the test, you also have to stay in isolation until you get the results. You will also be put into a quarantine if the test is positive (not clear about the cost of stay).
    If you are not choosen randomly for the test, you can go wherever you want, and no one cares.

      Moeten kinderen zelf een LPF formulier invullen? Weet iemand dit?

      • Dieter Reply

        See the text on top of the PLF: “One form should be completed by an adult member of each family.”

    • RB Reply

      I think you’ll find nothing is “discrimintory for tourists” as you state. At the end of the day, if people are not happy with being randomly tested etc. then it really is very simple…DON’T TRAVEL if it’s such an inconveneince.
      Below is the official stance as of 15th June:

      15 June inaugurates the gradual return to normalcy. Compulsory testing and quarantine will be limited only to travelers, irrespective of nationality, arriving from airports of affected areas with high risk of transmission of the Covid-19 infection, as assessed by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). The list is constantly updated and travelers should check before traveling. All other travelers will enter restriction-free and may be subject to random tests upon arrival.

      What will change on 1 July 2020?

      All travelers will be subject to random tests upon arrival. Additional restrictions regarding certain countries will be announced at a later date.

    What if we have road trip throught greece and visit 4 regions (and 4 hotels) during 28 days of our visit?
    Only 1 place can be filled into this form…

    • Dieter Reply

      See the text on the PLF: “TEMPORARY ADDRESS: If you are a visitor, write only the first place where you will be staying.”

      • Xeen Reply

        Yep, thx. I found I can add 2nd adress into form, but not more. Got only autoresponse so far.

      • Monika Reply

        Dieter, on my form it does not mention this ‘first place’, it only says temporary address (which is apparently the address of your home/hotel, or in our case, our first camping). Clear instructions, let alone detailed instructions, are absent from the page to which this news article refers. The form asks for cabin numbers for the ferry, where cabin numbers are only given on checkin at the ferry (not 48 hrs beforehand) and the camping deck does not even have cabin/seat numbers at all. Moreover, Corfu is missing as a port of entry, even though it is where we will debark.
        If you add any family members, the form gives all of them the same age and it is impossible to change that. Yesterday there was an issue with the postcode from the camping, which appears to be solved now but the other issues still make it impossible to complete our form. Why issue this PLF form at the last minute with so many bugs and errors, while there were literally weeks and weeks to test it out and solve these problems beforehand?

    • Sylvie Reply

      It is not clear to me if we need to fill in one form per family adding the family members or one per adults?? I leave on 1.07 not much time..
