Greece:- Still having trouble with your PLF forms?…. Examples are given to help you through each step.

The form is intended for the authorities to decide whether you should be tested for Covid-19 and so that the authorities can find you when you are in Greece , in case the test turns out to be positive. If someone else on the plane is tested positive, you may also have to be tested. The form is a way for Greece to activate infection tracking. You can learn more about what you need to comply with in this article.

You must complete your PLF no later than 24 hours before landing. It must be completed by ALL TRAVELLERS. FAMILIES/HOUSE HOLD MEMBERS ONLY ONE FORM. Then you will receive a QR code, which you must have with you when you get to the limit. If you haven’t had time to receive your QR code when it’s time to depart, bring the confirmation email you received when you submitted the form,otherwise you may be denied boarding the plane! Your QR code may well be emailed to you while you are in the air. We also have questions and answers with in this article you may want to read:- Questions and Answers for PLF forms

Travel information

Choose how you enter the country (Land Route, Flight, Cruise Ship or Ferry), click “Continue“.

Flight information

Enter the name of your airline, the flight number, the date of the flight and where you land. If you fly on domestically, you should fill in that information as well.

Personal data

Fill it all out your own personal details of your home address. If you’ve been in another country for the last 14 days, enter it here, or if not just click “Continue“.

Your addresses in Greece

Now you’re going to tell us where you are staying whilst in Greece. You must have accommodation booked for the first two weeks when filling out the form. If you are going to live in several places, you can click through and fill in all the addresses.

Now because you are staying on an island it may be confusing when it comes to adding STREET, as most tourist resorts do not have street names. Here you would put the resort name… for example Kalamaki, Argassi, Alykes, Lagana, Ambelokipi. City of course would be Zakynthos. The post code would be 29100… This is the general postcode of Zakynthos. Hotel, you would put the name of the hotel you are staying at.

Eg:-

Greece

Zakynthos

29100

SEA HOTEL

Kalamaki

Accompanying children

If you are travelling with children under the age of 18, click on “Add family member and fill in.

Same here. The vast majority can click “Submit” here and submit the form.

Confirmation

You will receive a confirmation in your email. You can also fill out the form for someone else.

Your QR code

This is the result of your efforts. If the first page of the number sequence is a one, you should be tested at the airport.

If you are required to take a test on arrival:

  • After testing you should practise social distancing and self-monitor for symptoms that could indicate COVID-19. The Greek authorities will contact you if you test positive and advise you on whether you need to self isolate or quarantine. Test results are expected to become available within 24 hours
  • if your test result is positive, the Greek authorities are likely to ask you to self-isolate for 14 days. Depending on the nature of your accommodation (e.g. whether you’re staying in a hotel, or in a private property like a house or villa), you may be required to move to government-provided accommodation. If you’re asked to move, the costs of transfer and your new accommodation will be paid by the Greek authorities

If you are not required to take a test on arrival, you will not be required to self-isolate.

You must comply with all instructions given by the Greek authorities. Failure to do so may result in you being refused permission to enter Greece and/or legal enforcement.

You should also be aware that if other passengers on your flight subsequently test positive, you may be subject to further quarantine/self isolation requirements. These will be mandatory and you should comply with the Greek authorities’ requirements.
