New Health Protocols for Traveling to Greece

No one has remained unaffected by the historically monumental event that was the covid-19 pandemic. We extend our sympathies to everyone that has suffered in his or her own way during these tumultuous times. As life is slowly starting to resume to normal rhythms, we must not throw caution to the wind, but take heed of the lessons we had to learn in the past few months moving forward.
The aftermath of an unprecedented global health crisis, finds the rules of travel vastly changed in a short amount of time. The governments of the countries least affected by this crisis have taken measures to ensure everyone’s safety as they are starting to welcome back travelers. Greece remains one of the safest destinations worldwide, having exceptionally handled a difficult situation and in the same spirit of responsibility has instituted a new public health protocol to retain the status quo.
We are here to help you navigate through the steps you need to take to travel to Greece in a safe and responsible manner. Starting July 1st 2020, the following guidelines have been issued by the Greek authorities:
Passenger Location Form (PLF)
The Passenger Locator Form (PLF) is a key element in the process. All travelers are obliged to complete their PLF at least 48 hours before entering the country, providing detailed information on their point of departure, the duration of previous stays in other countries, and the address of their stay while in Greece.
You can fill out the passenger location form here.
International Flights
The following protocol has been put in place for passengers traveling to any Greek airport via international flights:
Arrival of passengers at the arrival gate.
Transfer to the area where screening personnel are located and check the unique quick response (QR) code each passenger shows on their mobile phone screen or printed QR form.
Screening personnel direct passengers, depending on their QR code, either to the screening area or to the exit (baggage claim area or passport control). Until the screening results become available, passengers tested for the new coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 by a trained health team are obliged to self-isolate at the address of their final destination as declared on their passenger locator form (PLF). Upon completion of the screening, they are directed towards the exit.
All passengers must comply with all of the necessary preventive hygiene measures (use of masks and physical distancing).
Domestic Flights
For domestic flights, all passengers must comply with all of the necessary preventive hygiene measures (use of masks and physical distancing).
International Sea Travel
The following protocol has been put in place for passengers traveling to any Greek port from abroad:
Arrival of incoming passengers on foot at the main entry gate.
Incoming passengers arriving in vehicles are directed to the special entry gate.
All passengers are transferred to areas where screening personnel are located and check the unique quick response (QR) code each passenger shows on their mobile phone screen or printed QR form.
Depending on passengers’ QR code, screening personnel either direct them to the screening area or allow them to enter the country. Until the screening results become available, passengers who are tested for the new coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 by a trained health team are obliged to self-isolate at the address of their final destination as declared on their passenger locator form (PLF). Upon completion of the screening they are allowed to enter the country.
All passengers must comply with all of the necessary preventive measures (use of masks and physical distancing).
Domestic Sea Travel
As part of the guidelines announced by the Greek Authorities, all passengers must complete a “Pre boarding information” form and submit it to the vessel’s Chief Purser along with their ticket, when boarding, prior to the vessel’s departure. YWe will will send you the appropriate form prior to your departure. In addition, all passengers must comply with all of the necessary preventive hygiene measures (use of masks and physical distancing).
Land Transfers
In alignment with the Greek public health protocols, our fleet of land vehicles for domestic transfers has been equipped with all the necessary equipment to ensure our guests’ safety and comfort. Our personnel is equipped with protective masks and hand sanitizer is provided for passengers. Transfers are conducted at reduced capacity to observe social distancing during your trip.
Hotels
We have always utilized our decades of experience in the travel industry to select the finest hotels for our guests to stay in. In these times, this has become a matter of utmost importance. As a result, and with the safety of our guests at heart, we are only working with hotels from which we have been assured that health protocols are kept in their premises.
What happens with confirmed cases?
It’s always prudent to prepare for the worst, so in case an infection is confirmed, the Greek state will cover expenses related to hospitalization of visitors suffering from Covid-19 symptoms. This includes transfer to a hospital and medical costs as well as stay in a quarantine hotel if needed. In the event of a confirmed infection, close contacts of the case will be transferred to a separate quarantine accommodation at the expense of the Greek state. Remaining guests will continue their holidays.

My wife and I were impressed with the tour Eskapas arranged for us. I had never done a tour outside of Trafalgar or Cosmos, so didn’t know what to expect, but was very satisfied with the tour. Alex did an awesome job organizing our itinerary, taking care of everything like transfers etc so we could focus on the tour, and upgrading our room at the Marblius in Athens. Kostas was very friendly and knowledgeable and we learned a lot from our walking tour of the Acropolis. For the remainder of the tour outside of Athens around Greece, we were thoroughly impressed with our tour guide George and driver Socrates. Both were very friendly and dedicated to making our tour experience great. George had a great sense of humor and made the tour interesting through his anecdotes, Socrates was quiet, efficient and so helpful with the luggage, and we really appreciate them both organizing a Covid test for us while in the tour so we could be sure we were able to fly back home. All in all, we were very impressed with the tour Eskapas organized for us, and are so glad we were able to see so much of Greece and learn so much despite it being the off season and Covid times!

The tour covered most of the sights that I wanted to see and was very good except for the meals. The guides and the hotels were very good. We learnt so much about the country. The variety of photo stops and attractions was perfect…Good value for your money for sure… There was a lot of driving which was expected since we were seeing sites that were all across the country. The drivers were also good and respected the traffic rules. The tour need to improve included meals. Over all , I recommend it.

I would give it 4.5/5 stars. I signed-up for the 7-day absolutely greek (escorted) that consisted of 3 separate tours: half-day Athens city tour, 4-day olympia-delphi-meteora tour and half-day 3-island tour. PROS: 1. The tour company agents were always available and prompt in attending to my enquiries before and during my visit (specifically Alex and Thanasis). 2. The tour guides were knowledgeable and funny, especially George during the meteora tour. 3. The hotels were great and met many new friends with whom I now still stay in touch with. CONS: 1. The island tour was last-minute cancelled due to low participation—I do understand this is not entirely the tour company’s fault as the weather was not great that week and it’s the off-season. This happened just 12 hours before the cruise tour (it was the second-last day of my visit: I felt pretty disappointed) and would certainly appreciate it if I had been informed earlier. However, the tour agents were quick to respond and helped me make alternative arrangement— I was still able to visit an island on my own. 2. Didn’t have many lunch options for the meteora tour.

Overall great. We learnt so much about the country. Really happy the way the tour was Our guide Sukru with his unlimited much knowledge, there wasn’t any question he couldn’t answer. Our hotels were all good and we liked a lot the one in Pamukkale. In addition, I would also like to mention that our driver was an excellent driver who made sure that we got to our destination safely. He kept the bus clean and orderly at all times which made the bus rides very pleasant. Cons : Some days were long in the bus as Turkey is a big country. They stop every 2 hours. There is wifi in the bus. Good for kids. We wish to be informed about the cave hotel upgrade in Cappadocia. It would be great to experience it. Well as I said earlier, it is a well-organized and high quality tour + very good price . We recommend.

As a solo traveler, I rely on a trusted company that can get me safely from point A to B, especially when I’m unfamiliar with the area. At the same time, I expect them to provide excellent customer service (addressing questions/concerns, employing outgoing/knowledgeable guides, etc.). I feel safe to assume that they check all of these boxes off for me!”
