The procedures for entry into Greece described below have been extended until May, 14th 2021.

The form contains a series of questions about your trip, including the “cabin or seat number” and “ship name” fields where you can enter the words “TBA” (as this will not yet be known). Once the questionnaire is completed, you will receive an email containing a QR code, the possession of which will be checked by the Company during boarding.

For those who enter Greece, two additional preventive measures will be applied: the obligation to comply with a precautionary quarantine period of 7 days and a quick test on arrival, carried out on a sample basis.

From April 19th, the 7-day fiduciary isolation obligation, previously in force, is removed for passengers residing in EU countries, the Schengen area, the United Kingdom, the USA, the United Arab Emirates, Serbia and Israel provided that, at upon entering Greece, are in possession of a negative molecular test carried out within 72 hours of arrival, or – alternatively – a vaccination certificate (provided that at least 14 days have elapsed since the completion of the vaccination).

Children under the age of 5 are exempt.

For other passengers, until a later date, the obligation to comply with a period of fiduciary self-isolation of 7 days continues to be envisaged (or, in case of stay for shorter periods, for the entire period of stay).

On the other hand, the possibility remains in force for all arriving passengers to be subjected, on a sample basis, to a rapid test carried out upon arrival in Greece. The sample test, if selected, is mandatory: the Greek authorities reserve the right to refuse entry to the country to those who refuse to undergo the rapid test. In the event of a positive rapid test, a mandatory isolation period of 14 days is envisaged for travelers who tested positive and for their next contacts in special “quarantine hotels” (accommodation costs are covered by the Greek state), where new tests to verify the initial diagnosis.
