ATHENS, June 12. /TASS/. The Greek authorities have extended until June 21 the permission for the non-quota arrival of Russian citizens if they have either a certificate of vaccination against coronavirus, or a negative PCR test result, or a certificate of COVID-19 antibodies, according to an inter-ministerial decision.
The new decision was adopted following earlier decisions when the entry quota of 4,000 Russians per week was canceled. The mandatory seven-day quarantine requirement on arrival has also been lifted for new travelers.
The arriving tourists must complete the electronic Passenger Locator Form (PLF) on the government website, providing their contact details in Greece, the day before arriving in the country. Transport companies must check its presence before boarding the passenger, in case of violation they will be obliged to return the passenger back home at their own expense.
Upon arrival in Greece, passengers may be randomly asked to take a coronavirus test. The result must be received at the place of entry into the country. In case of a positive test result, the passenger will have to quarantine for 10 days.
From June 10, the number of flights on the Moscow - Athens route has been increased to eight per week. Aeroflot and Aegean Airlines operate four flights each. At the same time, there are no charter flights to Greek resorts from Russia yet.
