COVID-19 pandemic

Perrotis College is excited to welcome students from the US back to our campus, prioritizing  the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and greater community. 

To that aim, we are fully complying  with all instructions and protocols from relevant EU and Greek Ministries and organizations such as the National Public Health Organization  while adding extra school-specific precautions to safeguard the health of our campus.

1. Do I need to be fully vaccinated when studying abroad at Perrotis College?

Yes, all study abroad students are required to be fully vaccinated, including booster shots prior to their arrival to Greece. Documentation of their vaccine records are required. 

2. Do I need a Student Visa to study at Perrotis College if I am an American citizen?

No, you do not need to purchase a student visa. All of our programs are under the 90 day limit.

3. Prior to arriving in Greece, what steps do I need to take in addition to getting a student visa?

All US citizens must complete a ‘Passenger Locator Form’ (PLF), at least 48 hours before entering Greece. Once you complete the form, you will receive a QR code your will be required to show upon arrival.

You may find the PLF form here:

You are also advised to enroll in STEP before going abroad. The Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) is a free service to allow U.S. citizens and nationals traveling and living abroad to enroll their trip with the nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate.

4. Will I be quarantined once I arrive on campus?


5. Does Perrotis College provide health insurance?

Students typically receive health insurance from their home institution.   In the event that this is not possible or if a student would prefer supplemental coverage, we are able to arrange for private health insurance.   Before arriving in Greece, students should check with their current insurance provider regarding using their health insurance internationally, and that their insurance covers COVID-19 or pandemic-related treatment in general.

6. Is there support for students' well-being, both physical and psychological?

All students stay in the residence hall on campus. A staff member is on-call 24/7 for emergencies. Should a student seek medical attention, we will ensure they get the proper treatment. A campus doctor is available during working hours but can also be reached after hours if need be. Should a student seek professional mental health support, there is a school psychologist  that can provide supporting services.
