The Hellenic Civil Aviation Authority (HCAA) on Monday updated the temporary ban on entry into Greece from outside the European Union, removing Uruguay from a list of countries exempt from the restriction.
According to the revised aviation directive (NOTAM), only citizens of the following eight countries are allowed to enter Greece: Australia, Japan, New Zealand, Rwanda, South Korea, Thailand, United Arab Emirates and Singapore.
The aviation directive, which has been issued as part of the preventive measures taken to limit the further spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19), will be in force until January 7, 2021 (midnight).
The HCAA reminds that all passengers entering Greece on flights from any foreign country (including EU member states), until January 7, must self-isolate either at their home (for permanent residents) or at the place of temporary residence declared on the Passenger Locator Form (PLF), for three days.
The submission of the PLF by all passengers of international flights to Greece remains mandatory.
Moreover, travelers from abroad also have to submit a negative Covid-19 test result (PCR) performed up to 72 hours before arrival in Greece and also take a rapid Covid-19 test upon entry.
