Hi

Another point you have to remember is one I have mentioned on another post

Entry rules in response to coronavirus (COVID-19)
See https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/greece/entry-requirements. Click on Entry Requirements

You should also be aware that if other passengers on your flight, bus, train or ferry later test positive, you may be subject to further quarantine/self isolation requirements. These will be mandatory and you should comply with the Greek authoritiesí requirements.


If you look at the Summary section it states Still current at  4 June 2021

The Greek  authorities can do spot checks  and  know where you are stopping via the PLF form

Keep safe

The UK gov has not moved any countries from Amber to Green. So what happens now, will all flights be cancelled for the rest of June, to Greece.
Portugal has been moved to Amber with the chaos of people trying get back, before the deadline.

I believe as it stands at the moment (could all change before August), you don't need a test before you go to Corfu, if you've had both your jabs more than 14 days prior to departure.
You also need to fill out a PLF before you go, stating where you're staying in Greece.

HI Kev

This week the EU are due to confirm their Vaccine Passport that will allow all EU citizens to travel free of any tests and quarantine throughout the EU.
The UK, with some other countries, are expected to be added to that list .
but
Individual EU countries are free to make their own rules. Greece and Spain have agreed  to let in UK citizens with proof of 2 vaccinations 14 days before arrival.

So if you have not done so,  you will need to  download the NHS England App ( not test and trace) where you will see a QR code showing proof of vaccination.

Dont forget the PLF

Hope that helps

Keep safe

Geoff

It takes few days for the NHS app to catch up with your records. My vaccinations took 5 days the first and 2 days for the second one to show. ;)
 
Life is good ;)
