The Ministry of Tourism is implementing a well-designed policy against Covid-19 , for all the people who wish to visit the beautiful country of Greece.
All the measures regarding Greece’s visitors are presented in https://travel.gov.gr/#/
In there, everybody can find and fill the PLF in (Passengers Location Form) before their arrival to the country.
