Coronavirus (COVID-19)

As of July 10th 2020, the UK Government has approved that travel to Greece is allowed without the need to quarantine upon return, thanks to an 'air-bridge' agreement. Greece has been listed as a 'green/amber' destination and is therefore considered safe enough to visit without requiring 14 days of self-isolation upon reentering the UK. Tourists choosing to book stopover flights may not be permitted to return without quarantining if the country they stop off in is not also listed as green/amber by the UK Government. Please note that this information is constantly being reviewed and may be subject to change.

In order for you to be able to travel safely, the Greek government has stepped up its health control measures when entering the country. All travellers are required to complete the "health protocol" form, https://travel.gov.gr/#/ at least 48 hours before their arrival. A QR code will be generated and must be presented upon departure. Travellers arriving by air from Bulgaria, Romania, Sweden, Belgium, Spain, the Netherlands and the Czech Republic must have produced a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of arrival.

Please note that as of 4 am on September 3rd 2020, all travellers arriving in Scotland from Greece will have to quarantine for 14 days. Anyone arriving in Wales from the island of Zante will also be required to quarantine for a period of 14 days.

From 4 am on September 9th 2020, all travellers returning from Mykonos to the UK will be required to quarantine for 14 days.
