Greece will accept Russians until at least February 8, 2021, since the country’s authorities have extended the entry permit, TASS reports.
From November 21, 2020, Aeroflot resumed flights to Athens. It is specified that regular flights from Russia to Greece are still banned due to the coronavirus pandemic, so at the moment only two flights per week are allowed. According to the latest preliminary data, residents of Russia will be able to visit Greece until February 8, 2021, with a limit of 500 people per week. Russians can enter the country through the airports of Athens, Thessaloniki, and Heraklion.
To be allowed to enter the country, tourists must have a negative PCR test for infection no earlier than 72 hours before departure and a hotel voucher. The certificate with the test results must be in English, indicating the citizen’s passport number. Upon arrival, re-testing is selectively carried out (children under ten years old will not need to take the test). In addition, the day before arrival, travellers are asked to fill a PLF (Passenger Locator Form) at the travelling website.
