PLF Greece

Greek Passenger Locator Form (PLF) was introduced on the 14th of May, 2021 by the Government of the Hellenic Republic as part of the new travel restrictions. The form helps in contact tracing the incoming visitors in case the Greek authorities would need to get in touch with them regarding a possible Covid-19 infection. This ensures the safety of both Greek citizens and foreign travelers visiting. Greece Passenger Locator Form must be completed by every traveler no later than 24 hours of their planned arrival in Greece.

Travelers must follow the 24-hour period using Greek time; that is why it's best to fill the form even 72 hours before departure, as long as you know the flight number and other necessary details about your visit to Greece. The Greek PLF form is available online and requires travelers to provide basic personal, contact, and travel-related information, as well as details on their travel companions. Filling the form results in travelers receiving a unique QR code necessary for entering Greece. One Greek PLF can be submitted per family.
