Mandatory rapid arrival test for all passengers from UAE and United Kingdom is required from today 22 February to Monday 8 March 2021 at 6:00 am with a new supplementary NOTAM issued by the Civil Aviation Authority.
CAA: New NOTAM extension for flights within Greece – Only essential travel until February 15
The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) informs the passenger public about the amendment of the aviation directive which provides for a ban on entry to Greece of third-country nationals, except the countries of the European Union and the Schengen Agreement.
With an additional NOTAM, which will be valid from today until Monday, March 8, 2021 at 6:00 in the morning, a mandatory rapid arrival test is provided for all passengers from the United Arab Emirates as well as from the United Kingdom.
In particular, NOTAM provides for a ban on entry into the country of third-country nationals other than the countries of the European Union and the Schengen Agreement. Citizens of the following 10 countries are excluded from the directive: United Kingdom, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, Rwanda, South Korea, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, Russian Federation and Israel.
The supplementary air directive in relation to the pre-existing one added that for all passengers from the United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom a mandatory rapid arrival test is provided.
It is reminded that passengers entering the Greek territory with flights from abroad for the period up to 8/3/2021 are subject to mandatory precautionary restriction at home or at the place of temporary residence declared on the PLF form, for seven (7) days. In order to be quarantined, those arriving from the UK will have to undergo a new diagnostic test when the 7-day period, which is negative, is completed to remove the mandatory precautionary restriction.
Also, the obligation of all travelers to have a negative molecular (PCR) test of 72 hours and to fill in the PLF form in order to enter the Greek territory continues.
For all air directions dated until Monday, March 8, 2021, the exceptions as they exist from the pre-existing NOTAM apply.
