Greece to Abolish Passenger Location Form as of March 15

ATHENS – In line with the recommendations of the health ministry’s scientists’ committee, visitors to Greece from abroad will no longer have to submit a Passenger Locator Form (PLF) as of March 15, 2022. This facilitates the entry of passengers from abroad if they have a vaccination certificate.

“We are ready to welcome our visitors with safety for another year,” Tourism Minister Vassilis Kikilias said on Thursday.

The committee also recommended an increase in tourist coach capacity from 85 percent to 100 percent from March 5, provided that all the other safety precautions – natural ventilation, use of masks – are observed.
