Italy - Greece ferry travel: Mandatory measures

Following the COVID-19 guidelines announced by the Greek Authorities, the ferry company Minoan Lines (Grimaldi Group Company) issued a series of mandatory measures for passengers who travel to Greece by ferry. Here are the necessary steps for ferry travel in the Adriatic Lines: 

  1. All passengers who arrive at a Greek port as of Monday 06/07/2020 are required to complete a Passenger Locator Form (PLF) through the platform https://travel.gov.gr
  2. It is of high importance to note that the submission of the electronic form will have to be completed in the period 48 hours up to 72 hours before the arrival.
  3. In case of non-compliance with the above obligation, the disembarkation of the passengers by the Greek Port Authorities will not be allowed.

Please also keep in mind that in order to avoid overcrowding at the check-in area, we recommend the earliest possible arrival of passengers in the port of departure. It is recommended to be at the port more than 2 hours before the ferry departure.
