Isolation period for arrivals from UK extended to 10 days
ATHENS. All travellers arriving in Greece from the UK must self-isolate for 10 days (instead of 7 as previously announced) as of 6am on Tuesday, December 22.
The Hellenic Civil Aviation Authority (HCAA) has updated the aviation directive (NOTAM) for arrivals to Greece from the United Kingdom. The directive will remain in force until 7 January 7 at midnight and includes the following 3 measures:
- Upon arrival in Greece, travellers from the UK must immediately take a rapid Covid-19 test.
- They then 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 10 days (instead of 7 as previously announced), unless they are to remain in Greece for a shorter period, in which case the temporary restriction is valid for that period of time (until their departure).
- After the tenth day of quarantine, UK passengers will be obliged to take a new PCR test. If the test is negative the quarantine ends.
The submission of a PLF by all passengers on international flights to Greece remains mandatory and travellers also have to submit a negative Covid-19 test result (PCR) performed up to 72 hours before arrival in Greece
