A very large number of Romanians have opted in recent weeks to go to Greece, but the process is a bit more complicated than getting in the car and going down to the beach.

Starting today, July 1st, Tarom has started operating more flights to and from Greece. All flights are without any restrictions related to the reasons for the flight, according to the statement on Facebook. Thus, flights to/from Athens will be operated on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, and Thessaloniki on Thursdays and Sundays.

In the same post, Tarom officials drew attention to the mandatory procedures you must follow if you want to travel to Greece in the coming period. The most important step consists in filling out an online form that you can find at this address –

All you need to do to enter in Greece, or you're sent home: online forms, applications, QR

Completing the online document is mandatory and you cannot do it when you are at the border of the country or when you got off the plane. Instead, you have to do the gesture at least 48 hours before you leave, if you don't want to go back home.

In that form called PLF (Passenger Locator Form), you will fill in data about the region of the country you come from, the duration of your visit to Greece and the exact address of the destination point, hotel, guesthouse, a friend's house. After following this step, you should shortly receive a QR code that you can print or keep on your phone to be scanned by the authorities at the border.

Depending on the information found behind the code, it is not out of the question to be quarantined, tested for the coronavirus or sent to your vacation location without any problem. Temperature measurement and possible Covid-19 tests will be done randomly upon entering Greece.

Regarding air flights, in addition to the PLF, another form will be provided on board, which must be completed and handed in when requested.
