Russian citizens must provide a negative PCR laboratory test 72 hours or an express test 48 hours before entry

TBILISI, June 28 – Sputnik. Tourists who have arrived in Greece from Russia from June 30 will undergo a mandatory express test for coronavirus free of charge, Dimitris Haritidis, managing director of Tez Tour Greece, told RIA Novosti.

In case of a positive rapid test result, Russian tourists will be given a PCR test.

All Russians entering Greece are required to undergo an express test or PCR test for coronavirus at the border, until the results are received, they will be in the control zone at the entrance. This decision was made to reduce the risk of the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19.

Citizens of Russia, regardless of whether they have a vaccination certificate or a certificate of a past illness, must provide a negative PCR laboratory test 72 hours or an express test 48 hours before entry. At the border, upon arrival in Greece, they must go through another check.

“Everyone who arrives receives a test for free. As explained at the Heraklion airport, arrivals pass an express test. The result comes in 10-15 minutes, and passengers can immediately go further. If someone is positive, then only they pass smear for PCR and sent to the observatory. If not confirmed, then they continue to leave. If a positive result is confirmed, remain in quarantine, “- said Haritidis. “The whole process will be delayed by 10-15, maybe 20 minutes,” he added.
