GREECE: COVID-19. Update on 15/02/2021:
The lockdown, introduced throughout the country from 7 November, has been extended until 1 March 2021 with the possibility of further extension.
Throughout the country, the use of a mask is mandatory in all outdoor and indoor spaces. In order to circulate, you must send an SMS to the free number 13033 (which works only for Greek numbers) or have a self-declaration with you (for more details please check the website of the embassy of your country in Greece).
Depending on the rate of contagion in the individual regions, variable prevention measures are applied: a
interactive map
(in Greek) that distinguishes the level of risk of the various areas and lists the relative measures. In particular, from 11 February until 28 February 2021, specific measures are envisaged for the Attica Region (Athens included), listed on the website of the Italian Embassy in Athens.
All travelers from abroad (regardless of their country of origin or citizenship) are required to submit a negative molecular test for Covid-19 carried out in the 72 hours prior to arrival in Greece. In order to access the country, it is also essential to fill in - at the latest the day before arrival in Greece - an online form on
this site
(not accessible with internet explorer), the Passenger Locator Form (PLF), with which travelers they must provide information on the place of origin, the length of previous stays in other countries and the address of their stay in Greece.
For those who will enter Greece until 22 February (but the provision is subject to extension), there is an obligation to respect a period of fiduciary self-isolation of seven days (or, in case of stay for shorter periods, for the whole period of stay); in addition, a quick test will be carried out on arrival at the airport.
It should be noted that the page is managed by the Greek authorities. For questions related to the operation of the site and / or doubts about entering the country related to the compilation of the PLF, you can contact the assistance number indicated by the Greek authorities: 00302155605151.

For the entire duration of the lockdown, the ability to travel within the country is limited. It is possible to move between different regional units only in case of emergency (return to the place of main residence, family reunification, professional reasons and health reasons), to be proven with official supporting documents.
Please note that in the event of a positive result ascertained by the Greek authorities, a mandatory quarantine period of 14 days is envisaged. A mandatory quarantine period is also envisaged for "close contacts" of positive subjects. It is necessary to strictly follow the instructions of the local authorities, which will provide information on the procedure to follow.
In the event of symptoms attributable to Covid-19, it is necessary to immediately refer to a doctor or to the Hellenic National Health Authority (EODY)
