Greece imposes negative covid-19 test result for arrivals from Czech Republic

Advertisment

From Monday, September 28, passengers from the Czech Republic will need to present a negative Covid-19 test result on arrival to Greece.

The test cannot be older than 72 hours prior to their arrival in Greece.

The Hellenic Civil Aviation Authority said that the aviation directive (NOTAM) will remain in effect until Wednesday, September 30.

All passengers arriving in Greece must fill in a Passenger Locator Form (PLF) at least a day before arrival, providing information that will include their departure airport, the address where they will be staying and the expected duration of their stay in Greece, among others. The information on the form is a key element of the country’s planning for protection against the pandemic and preventing the spread of the virus.

The Hellenic Civil Aviation Authority stressed that before accepting passengers for boarding, airlines must check:

  • the PLF submission confirmation at least the day before the flight, which is a mandatory travel document
  • the correspondence with the QR code and the PLF

Airlines that do not comply with this control obligation will be responsible for the repatriation of passengers at the expense of the company.
