Fully vaccinated travelers from the United States, Canada and Australia are no longer required to present a negative COVID-19 test to enter Greece, the Greek Civil Aviation Authority announced on Monday.
The authority said in a press release that travelers from the three countries would be allowed to enter under the same requirement as EU citizens with the COVID-19 Certificate.
American, Canadian and Australian travelers can now enter Greece by showing one of the following documents:
(1) Vaccination certificate valid nine months after the primary course of vaccination with unlimited validity for those who have received a booster dose
(2) Certificate of illness (valid for 180 days)
(3) Negative PCR test performed within 72 hours of departure or rapid antigen test within 24 hours of arrival.
Other countries exempted from the negative test requirement include:
EU/Schengen Area, San Marino, Albania, Andorra, Armenia, Vatican, Northern Macedonia, Georgia, Switzerland, El Salvador, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, Iceland, Israel, Liechtenstein, Lebanon, Morocco, Montenegro, Moldova, Monaco, Norway, New Zealand, Ukraine, Uruguay, Panama, Cape Verde, Serbia, Singapore, Thailand, Togo, Turkey, Tunisia, Faroe Islands and Taiwan.
Regardless of vaccination status, all incoming travelers must complete the Passenger Locator Form (PLF) to enter Greece.
