How to correctly fill in the entry form in Greece PLF

The infernal queues that form at the Kulata-Promachonas border crossing are due to the fact that tourists did not fill in a mandatory form online. Those who plan to travel to Greece in the next period are important to know how to properly fill in the entry form in Greece – Passanger Location Form (PLF).

It is sad, but very few who travel to Greece during this period know what they have to do to enter Greek territory. This is one of the reasons why queues form at border points – most of them fill in forms at customs that they should have filled in online at least 24 hours before leaving for the trip. A significant number complain that these forms are complicated, or that they need to be completed in English, and they do not know English.

That is why we thought of coming to the aid of those who have difficulty with English and we tell them, step by step and picture by picture, what to fill in on each page of the PLF questionnaire to be filled in on the page travel.gov.gr. When traveling in Greece you need to take into account the lesser known traffic rules of this country.

How to correctly fill in the entry form in Greece PLF

First step it is, of course, accessing the page indicated above and creating a user account. The step ends with confirming the code received by email and logging into the application on the site. From this moment, you can start filling in the online form that makes the Greek authorities happy, so that we can reach our holiday destination. Attention, during the completion of the questionnaire you do not have to press the “back” button of the browser, otherwise you will have to resume the whole process from the beginning. If you have forgotten something and want to return to the information previously entered, you will need to use the “Back” button at the top left of the form page.

Here you must tick all 3 boxes, proving that you have read the terms and conditions and that the data you will send are completed in good faith and reflect reality. Then press the “Continue” button. The next screen is to select the way you will get to Greece: by land, air, sea. As many Romanian tourists prefer personal cars, we opted to fill in the form from this perspective. I checked “ground” and continued:

The next screen allows the selection of the means of transport, the choice being “car”, the personal car.

What else do you need to know about PLF, the entry document into Greece

  • All travelers must complete the PLF, which contains detailed information about the point of departure and the address where tourists will stay in Greece. If they go to several places, it is necessary to specify at least the address for the first 24 hours.
  • One PLF is completed for each family
  • Travelers will receive a confirmation email after completing the PLF.
  • They will receive the PLF with their unique QR code in the first minutes of the day they have scheduled their arrival in Greece and will be notified by email (the QR code is provided via a link in the confirmation email)
  • Travelers can leave the road the day before arrival in Greece only on the basis of a confirmation email, taking into account that they will receive the QR code during the flight or road to Greece. Thus, those who leave the day before can board the plane based on the confirmation email.
  • The PLF can also be found on the “Visit Greece” application, and the Greek authorities “strongly recommend” that all visitors download (free) the “Visit Greece” application before arrival.
