Tourists risk being refused entry into Greece after tracking code delays

British holidaymakers travelling to Greece face anxious waits and hefty fines after apparent issues with the country’s track and trace system meant some users were not receiving the necessary QR code to pass coronavirus controls.

Travellers are required to fill in a “passenger locator form” (PLF) 24 hours before arrival in Greece so they can receive a code to show authorities on arrival, either printed or on a smartphone.

But tourists have reported confusion as the code does not arrive until midnight “on the day of their scheduled arrival”, in Greek time.

I've heard it 'helps' if you fill it in more than 24 hours before, like 48 hours as originally required. I've also heard this doesn't help. Hey ho!

Not a big fan but caught the tail end of Tenable on TV. And the question was, "Name the last ten English monarchs".

Contestant says: Elizabeth III


Ah-ha, it was a repeat, here it is on youtube:
