What do I have to consider when entering Germany?

With the new entry regulation, which has been in force since August 1, uniform regulations on registration, quarantine and testing/proof requirements have been established.

Proof of a negative COVID-19 test result, complete COVID-19 vaccination, or recovery from a COVID-19 infection is required upon entry into Germany - regardless of where from or by which means of transportation. A negative COVID-19 test result is always mandatory for a prior stay in a virus variant area.

In case of a previous stay in a high-risk or virus-variant area within 10 days prior to entry into Germany, registration at www.einreiseanmeldung.de is always required.

Also, in case of a previous stay in a high-risk area, a quarantine of 10 days must always be observed, which can be shortened under certain conditions. After a previous stay in a virus variant area, the quarantine is 14 days and cannot be shortened.

Further information can be found here and on the website of the Federal Ministry of Health.

As a matter of principle, please inform yourself in good time before you travel about the regulations that apply to leaving the country from which you intend to travel to Germany, as the development of the Covid-19 pandemic continues to be very dynamic.
