Where to take a Covid test in Greece (includes addresses, maps and contact info)
As of May 1st 2022, Greece has relaxed most of the Covid-related restrictions that were in place for many months. You can read more information here.
In short, visitors no longer need to show a vaccination / recovery certificate or test to enter indoor or outdoor venues. Masks remain mandatory in indoor venues, including museums, ferries, planes, buses, the Athens metro etc.
However, your country of origin might be asking for a negative PCR or Rapid antigen test when you are returning home. Or you may want to take a Covid test for another reason.
Here is where to take a Covid test in Greece.
Where can I get a Covid-19 test in Greece?
You can get a Rapid Antigen and PCR test at certain airports in Greece. Check the airport websites for more information.
In addition, you can take a Rapid Antigen test in most pharmacies in Greece. Ask your hotel or local pharmacy for more information.
In addition, Covid-19 tests can be taken at private medical labs around Greece. You may need to book an appointment, though not all labs require it.
I suggest you schedule your appointment as soon as you know when you need your test for, as availability might be limited in some areas. Also, note that some labs may not be open on Sundays and perhaps Saturdays.
The results of your Rapid test will normally be emailed you in 1-2 hours, while for PCR tests it may take up to a day. The name on your test certificate must match your name as written on your passport.
Maximum prices for these tests are fixed, at 10 euro for a Rapid Antigen test and 47 euro for a PCR test. If you are flying with Aegean / Olympic Air, there may be a small discount for tests taken at the airport.
Here is a list of labs around Greece where you can take a Covid-19 test. I have included phone numbers, websites, and the location on Google Maps to make it easier!

If I’m right, the NHS Covid Pass is a vaccination certificate? Yes, this is totally fine. I am not sure if the QR code can be scanned, given it’s a non-EU vaccination certificate, but they will just read it when needed. I would suggest carrying a paper copy with you, as it might make it easier to read. You can find some more information in this article. Enjoy your holiday!

I’m afraid I don’t know. I am hoping that some pharmacies would do them, so it would be best to ask around when you are in Greece.
Thank you. In the meantime, I found out that Genelabs does it. Just in case anyone else needs this info.
