New rules for ferryboat travel to the Greek islands came into force on Monday, July 5, in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Passengers are now required to present one of the following: COVID vaccination certificate; evidence of recent recovery from the disease; negative PCR test done up to 72 hours prior to the voyage; negative rapid test done up to 42 hours prior to the voyage.
The rules apply to all travelers aged 12+. Persons between 12-17 years of age have the right to ferry with a negative result from a self-test performed during the last 24 hours.
Passengers aged 12+ are also advised to take their own tests prior to returning to the continent.
