From November 9, 2020, all persons who want to enter Greece by air must present a negative PCR test, which must not be older than 48 hours. Otherwise, entry can be refused. The "online pre-registration" must still be made and the form with QR code must be carried digitally or on paper.

What is also new is that this must also be completed by travelers flying from Greece - i.e. leaving the country. This will also come into force on November 9, 2020. Failure to comply with the aforementioned regulations can result in a fine of up to 500 euros. The government stresses that despite the new lockdown, which is due to come into effect on Saturday, November 7th, 2020, the airports should remain open. Currently, however Thessaloniki temporarily closed.

Due to the fact that Austrians, Germans and Swiss now also have to show a negative PCR test when entering Greece, it is to be expected that the airlines will reduce the offer again. From Vienna, this should primarily affect the Athens route. With a quick response - for example from Ryanair and Wizzair - is therefore to be expected.
