Greece on Friday announced new restrictions for all unvaccinated travellers arriving in the country from India, Russia, UAE, 10 other countries.

The new ban requires everyone arriving from Egypt, Albania, Argentina, Brazil, Georgia, Cuba, the United Arab Emirates, India, China, Libya, Morocco, Russia and Turkey to be vaccinated, regardless of their nationality to get checked upon arrival.

Greek Aviation Authority (GAA) has also warned in a press release that the entry ban for incoming international flights will be extended until August 27 as an effort to contain the spread of the coronavirus.

To Enter Greece, Travellers Must Present the Following:

1. A vaccination certificate holder has been vaccinated against coronavirus at least 14 days prior to travel. The document must be presented in either Greek, English, French, German, Italian, Spanish or Russian and issued by a public authority.

2. A negative PCR test result taken at 72 hours after departure or 48 hours for rapid testing.

3. A recovery certificate was issued 30 days ago, indicating that the holder was infected with the coronavirus and is immune to it for 180 days after the document is issued.

4. Travellers arriving from abroad may also carry, in digital or printed form, a European Digital Certificate of Covid-19 (EU Digital covid-19 Vaccination Passport), containing information on the holder's vaccination, recovery or test status. Vaccination and testing requirements apply to all travelers over the age of 12.

If the traveller's rapid test comes back positive, he/she will have to be backed up with a PCR test immediately. If both the tests find the passenger positive, the ten-day quarantine requirement will apply.

The isolation requirement applies for seven days for international travelers who are vaccinated but test positive on arrival.

In both cases (for a temporary restriction of seven or ten days), in order to end the quarantine, the passengers will have to provide a PCR test on the last day.
