Covid-19 News: Currently, the situation looks like everything, also to the extend planned, can take place. Please make sure to update yourself about the regulations when travelling to Greece. For example, check the website of the Austrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs or the WKO.
Entry to Greece
All passengers need to fill out the so-called Passenger Locator Form (PLF) which you can find here (only one form per family needed): https://travel.gov.gr/#/
Please follow the instructions on that page on how to submit your PLF. Upon submitting, you will receive an email confirmation. This is NOT your PLF: Shortly after 11pm (Austrian time) on the day before you fly, you will receive another email, which will include a QR code. (Latest update is that we heard that the PLF will be send already 24h after you registered. So you get it latest on the night before you enter the Greece or very likely earlier.)
This is your PLF, you will need it to board the flight and you will need it at the airport. On that same page, you can find the most current regulations related to COVID.
At the moment, Greece is on Austria’s green list and Austria is on Greece’s green list. This means that, if you are vaccinated, you need no test to enter Greece, or to re-enter Austria. ‘Vaccinated’ means 14 days after the second dose. Proof of vaccination: the best thing to do is to have your green pass with you (on the phone or printed), but the yellow ‘Impfpass’ is also accepted.
If you are not vaccinated, you will need a PCR test (at most 72 hours before arrivals) to enter Greece via plane. If you come by ferry, at least the Austrian government says that a PCR or Antigen Test are enough if you are not vaccinated. But please check out the latest regulations yourself.
Entry to the wedding location
There are no restrictions whatsoever, because the entire event is outdoors. No vaccination certificate or testing needed.
For the rest of your stay
You can visit all commercial stores without proof of vaccination. You can also eat at a restaurant without proof of vaccination or any test, but only outdoors. If you wanted to eat indoors (which you don’t, in July), you would need to be vaccinated. You also need to be vaccinated to enter nightclubs.
UPDATE - Current situation
As in most countries there has been an increase in cases during the last few weeks, mostly driven by the younger population. However, this increase has been slowing down and we expect no further measures by the government for Athens. You may have seen in the news that there is a mild lockdown in Mykonos, and this might also happen to other very touristic islands, but those islands are an entirely different story than the Attica region, where the wedding takes place.
We are monitoring the situation on a daily basis and if there is any new development we will post it here immediately.
