Athens/Sputnik: Greece is extending entry permission for up to 500 Russian citizens per week, provided that they test negative for COVID-19 and have all the necessary documents, the decision was published by the Government Gazette on Sunday.

The entry permission is being extended until Jan 7, 2021.

The entry conditions remain the same: up to 500 Russian citizens per week are allowed to arrive in Greece via airports in Athens, Thessaloniki and Heraklion.

The passengers must demonstrate negative coronavirus test results, received no earlier than 72 hours prior to arrival.

A test can also be taken at the airport, in that case, passengers are required to self-isolate until they get their test results.

Russian nationals arriving in Greece must also fill out a Passenger Locator Form (PLF), providing all the contact information for their stay in Greece.

Greece started to allow entry for up to 500 Russian citizens per week on Sept 7. Since then, the entry permit has been extended several times.

A coronavirus quarantine will be in force in Greece until Jan 7. The restrictions, introduced amid a surge in infection rates, include a curfew and strict mask-wearing rules.
