This is determined by the code number. If it starts at 13, it is almost certain that the authorities will do a new PCR at the border. However, if it starts with 23, they are more likely to just check the available documents and let the tourists go.That is why our people submit dozens of applications for travel until they receive a QR starting with the covenant 23.
According to the current rules, all Bulgarians who enter Greece for insignificant reasons – health, work, family, and go on vacation, must provide a certificate for a negative PCR test, which was done 72 hours before the trip. In addition, tourists fill in the so-called. PLF electronic localization form. It is after him that software generates the QR code in question.
However, it turns out that many Bulgarians fill in the form several times. This is what acquaintances on the social network say. “The Greeks were impressed that the number of declared declarations has increased, and the actual number of passers-by is lower.
Last night they caught a Bulgarian who issued more than 20 declarations until he received one with code 23. Changes in the system are expected so that by scanning the code with the reader, it will become visible if the passenger has more than one declaration issued “, writes a woman in one of the travel groups.
Meanwhile, a new requirement comes into force today – those entering Greece by air will have to have a PCR test certificate, as well as a QR code. Both at the border and at the airport, tourists will be checked.
Greek authorities specify that they provide for a 2-day grace period. On Tuesdays and Wednesdays, passengers who did not have time to be tested will be screened on arrival. As of Thursday, however, no exceptions will be allowed and every tourist will be required to present a document in English containing the three names and passport or ID card numbers.
The test itself must be done in an accredited laboratory. Greek authorities will keep a close eye on counterfeiting, as counterfeit tests have already been caught at the Kulata border checkpoint.
The media in our southern neighbor reported weeks ago that false negative results were being sold at the border.
