We inform you that, as of Sunday 01.05.2022, all travellers arriving in Greece, regardless of their country of origin, are no longer required to display a valid certificate of vaccination or recovery from COVID-19, or evidence of a negative test result from SARS-CoV-2 infection (PCR or Rapid Antigen test).
PASSENGERS TRAVELLING FROM GREECE TO ITALY
Regarding the conditions that are valid as of 01.05.2022, for the entry into Italy from Greece in order to limit the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19 (Ordinance of the Italian Minister of Health - 28.04.2022).
For entry into Italy from the 01 May 2022, travellers must present to the carrier upon boarding and to whoever else has the authority to carry out controls, the EU digital COVID certificate, showing that they:
- Have completed the vaccination for COVID-19 at least fourteen (14) days before arrival to Italy, or
- Have recovered from COVID-19 and completed the prescribed period of isolation following SARS-CoV-2 disease. The certificate of recovery is valid up to one hundred and eighty (180) days after the first positive test, or
- Have taken a molecular COVID-19 test within seventy two hours (72) before entering Italy or a rapid antigen COVID-19 test within forthy eight hours (48) before entering Italy, with a negative result in SARS-CoV-2.
Alternatively to the EU digital COVID certificate, travellers to Italy can equally present green certificates, i.e. certificates issued in one of the member states of the European Union or in a third country, after completion of vaccination with an approved by EMA (European Medicines Agency) vaccine or after recovery from COVID-19 and completion of the quarantine period required for SARS-CoV-2 disease or after performing, within 48 or 72 hours before entering Italy, rapid antigen test or molecular test with negative result.
Certificates may be written in Italian, English, French or Spanish and may be submitted in either written or digital form.
In case of non-presentation of the EU digital COVID certificate or the green certificate, a preventive self-restriction is required (5-day quarantine) after informing the competent local Health Authority of entry into Italy and, after the end of the 5-day preventive self-restriction, it is necessary to take a molecular test (PCR) or antigen test.
Children under 6 years of age are exempt from the pre-departure molecular or antigen swab test.
Minors are exempt from quarantine (where provided) only if they are accompanied by an adult (parent or other escort) holding a green certificate (or the EU digital COVID certificate).
Provided that there are no symptoms of COVID-19, the presentation of an EU digital COVID certificate or a green certificate and the performance of molecular or antigenic test within 72 hours or 48 hours before arrival in Italy, do not apply to:
- whoever enters Italy for a period of less than 120 hours for proven reasons of work, health or urgency, with the obligation, at the end of the above period, to leave Italian territory immediately or, if this is not possible, to enter a period of monitoring or preventive self-restriction.
- whoever transits, by his own means, through the Italian territory for a period of up to 36 hours, with the obligation, at the end of the above period, to leave the Italian territory immediately or, if this is not possible, to enter a period of monitoring or preventive self-restriction.
