As part of the COVID-19 guidelines announced by the Greek Authorities for the prevention of the coronavirus transmission and spread, please note the following for your travels by ship:

  1. Pre-Boarding Health Questionnaire: must always be filled in by all adult passengers wishing to travel by ship in Greece and submitted at ticket control, when boarding, prior to the vessel’s departure. You can fill in the form on-line at or download the form from our website.
  2. Green Passport / Test-Certificate: anyone wishing to travel from mainland Greece to the islands must also present one of the following certificates (in electronic or printed form) before boarding the vessel:
    • Vaccination Certificate (14 days after the second dose) or
    • Negative result of Molecular Test (PCR) carried out up to 72 hours prior to travel, or
    • Negative result of Rapid Test conducted up to 24 hours before travel, or
    • Negative result of a Self-Test conducted up to 24 hours before travel, the result of which must be declared on the Pre-Boarding form, or
    • Documented proof of having recovered from Covid-19, at least 2 months since infection, and no more than 9 months, before the departure date

    The obligation to present a negative PCR Test, Rapid Test or Self-Test result, if there is no Vaccination Certificate, is compulsory for all passengers over the age of 5.

    The obligation to present a “green passport / test-certificate” does not apply when travelling from the islands to mainland Greece, or between Greek islands.

  3. Protective mask: the use of a protective face-mask is mandatory at all times (when boarding / disembarking, and during the entire trip).

We recommend that you arrive at the port of departure on time, to facilitate the check-in process before boarding.
Passengers should not travel if they have symptoms of COVID-19 infection (cough, fever, sore throat, shortness of breath and other respiratory symptoms) or have been in contact with a COVID-19 patient the last 14 days before the trip. In case passengers develop respiratory symptoms during the trip (high fever, cough or difficulty in breathing), they must report this immediately to the vessel’s crew.
