iVisa | Updated on Apr 29, 2021

If you’re taking advantage of Greece reopening its borders to travel in the next few months and enter the country by land, you should know about the protocols that the Hellenic Republic has in order to keep narrowing the spread of the novel coronavirus within its community.

The arrival of people will be at the checkpoint where passport and customs control will be carried out. Then, you’ll transfer yourself to the area where screenings are taking place and will be requested to show the QR code of your Health Declaration so you’re authorized in the country.

Once you do this, you may be taken to a screening area where you’ll be tested for COVID-19, next, you’ll be directed to the baggage claim area or the exit.

Your results will be available in 24 hours and in the meantime, you should practice social distancing and self-monitor for possible coronavirus symptoms. If you feel any, you must contact the National Public Health Organization (EODY) Operations Centre. If your results are positive, the Greek authorities will contact you and proceed with the health protocol that’s been established. If not, you can continue with your travel holidays, following the general public health safety measures.

Keep in mind that if you’re visiting Greece for non-essential reasons through the Promachonas border station, you must showcase a negative molecular test result (PCR) for COVID-19 performed up to 72 hours before your entry to the country upon your arrival.
