The Flight Directive for Russia Extended Until October 12

ATHENS — The aviation directive for permanent residents of Russia is extended until Monday, October 12, 2020 at midnight. According to the NOTAM issued by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), those passengers, permanent residents of Russia, travelling to Greece by air connection from the Russian Federation will enter Greece only with a negative test Covid-19, which will be performed by the method of PCR, (taking oral and pharyngeal or nasopharyngeal smear), up to 72 hours before their arrival.

Moreover, the maximum entry limit of 500 people per week from Russia remains in force and only at the airports of Athens, Thessaloniki and Heraklion.

Passengers are required to show the Greek inspection authorities a negative molecular test result (PCR) for Covid-19 from a certified diagnostic centre in English which will include their name and passport number or identity card.

Airlines must check whether passengers have a certificate with a negative test before the flight, as its absence obliges the airline not to embark the passenger.

At the same time, the obligation to complete the Passenger Locator Form (PLF) at the electronic address https://travel.gov.gr/ before arrival in Greece remains in force.

In any case, the permanent residents of Russia who come to Greece will undergo a sampling laboratory medical examination for covid-19. Until the results of the laboratory test are issued, passengers will remain to their place of temporary residence. All passengers must also bring a hotel booking receipt or other appropriate documents, which indicate their place of temporary residence. Greek repatriation programmes are excluded from notam.
