Greece to end requirement for PLF for travellers
ATHENS. From 15 March travellers entering Greece from all countries will no longer have to fill in a Passenger Locator Form (PLF).
The decision follows the recommendation of the Health Ministry’s committee of experts.
The abolition of the PLF simplifies entry procedures for travellers, shifting the emphasis to the control of vaccination certificates.
"Greece is once again at the forefront with a set of revised protocols for tourism enterprises," said Tourism Minister Vassilis Kikilias. "For another year, we are ready to welcome our visitors in safety."
Tourism Minister's statement
“Following the recommendation of the Health Ministry’s committee of experts, the completion of the Passenger Locator Form (PLF) by visitors from all countries for entry into Greece is being abolished as of March 15, 2022. This simplifies entry procedures for travellers, shifting the emphasis to the control of vaccination certificates.”
Tourist coach capacity increased to 100%
The committee also recommended increasing tourist coach capacity from 85% to 100% from March 5, with natural ventilation and use of a mask.
In the new health protocols, hotels with more than 50 rooms are still obliged to cooperate with a medical doctor or health centre.
Under the revised health protocols:
– Accommodation owners must provide disposable gloves to staff in housekeeping and kitchens.
– Customers will no longer be required to use gloves at hotel buffets.
– The use of disinfectant liquid is mandatory.
– Disposable tablecloths and steam cleaning surfaces are no longer required. This will only be required when there has been a confirmed case in the room.
