COVID-19 entry requirement for Greece: all passengers must complete a Passenger Locator Form (PLF) before traveling.

Greece has introduced a health declaration form for the COVID-19 pandemic. This Passenger Locator Form (PLF) is mandatory for all international travelers to enter the country.

The PLF for Greece is designed to help reduce the spread of coronavirus and protect public health in the Hellenic Republic.

This page outlines how to complete the Passenger Locator Form for Greece and who needs to have one.

What Is the PLF for Greece?

The Greece Passenger Locator Form is a travel health certificate introduced during the COVID-19 pandemic. It is now an entry requirement for passengers traveling to the Hellenic Republic.

It is mandatory to complete the Greece PLF online. This is done by entering the required information about the passenger, their health and COVID status, and their travel details.

The PLF is a health declaration form for Greece. The traveler must declare that they are safe to travel and provide contact information. This will allow authorities to reach them in case they have been in contact with someone infected with COVID-19. They will then be instructed to take the appropriate steps, such as quarantining and testing.

In these ways, the PLF is a measure to counter the spread of the virus.

Who Needs to Complete the Passenger Locator Form for Greece?

All travelers heading to Greece must be included on a Passenger Locator Form. This includes:

  • Foreign visitors and tourists
  • Greek nationals
  • Residents of Greece

Individuals living in separate households must each complete their own PLF.

Households traveling together (e.g. families) can include all passengers living together on the same form. Greek authorities ask families to fill in one PLF between them. All family members must be included on this form.

Do children need a Passenger Locator Form for Greece?

Yes, children must be included on a PLF to travel to Greece.

In most cases, children will be traveling with a family member or adult in the same household. In this situation, they should be included on the adult’s Passenger Locator Form. Their parent or guardian may enter their details on their behalf.

If the child is traveling alone or with other passengers who do not reside in the same household, they must have their own PLF. Again, this may be filled in by a parent or guardian.

They must be prepared to present proof of this with a vaccination certificate, test result, or the EU Digital COVID Certificate (EU DCC).

Traveling to Greece with the Passenger Locator Form

After completing and submitting the Greek PLF, the passenger will be able to download a PDF of the final travel declaration. This will have a QR code that will be scanned before departure and upon arrival.

The individual can then either print the PLF or store a digital copy on their mobile device. This will enable them to travel to Greece.

It is important to remember that in order to enter the country, travelers must also have proof that they are safe to travel (vaccination certificate, negative test result, etc.).

It may also be necessary to have a visa or travel authorization, as well as a valid passport. This passport must be the same as the one registered in the PLF.
