Greece extends restrictions: FCDO issues new warning to Brits – what do you need to know?


What are the travel rules for vaccinated Britons hoping to visit Greece?

As travel rules are set to remain the same, all arrivals from the UK, regardless of their vaccination status, must present a negative COVID-19 test.

The FCDO states: “Until Monday, February 7, 2022, the following requirements for entry to Greece apply regardless of your vaccination status.

“You will need one of the following to enter Greece: proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test, undertaken within the 72-hour period before arrival into Greece, or proof of a negative COVID-19 rapid antigen test from an authorised laboratory, undertaken within the 24-hour period before your arrival into Greece.”

These requirements are compulsory for all travellers aged five years and above.

Any tests used must be “certified by the competent national certification authority of the country in which you received the test”, and test result certificates can only be printed in Greek, English, French, German, Italian, Spanish or Russian.

The certificate must include the name of the person, as stated on the passport.
