Covid-19: Regulations for travel to Germany

It is possible to enter Germany (with the exception of those who come or have been within the last 14 days in any of the countries on the Red List) for any reason if you have a complete vaccination against the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus with one of vaccines approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA). Children under 12 years of age  who have not been vaccinated can enter the country accompanied by at least one fully vaccinated parent and are not required to present a negative COVID-19 test.

Unvaccinated persons can enter Germany if they have a negative test for SARS-CoV-2 and their reason for travel is included in the  list of exceptions  of the Federal Ministry of the Interior. Since 21.11.2021, it is not necessary to quarantine after entering Germany.

Full vaccination must have been done with one of the vaccines mentioned on  the Paul Ehrlich Institute website . Depending on the type of vaccine, the only or last dose required must have been administered at least 14 days ago.

Vaccinated persons must present a complete vaccination certificate against the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus from the European Union or comparable in German, English, French, Italian or Spanish (on paper or in digital format). The certificate must always contain the following information:

  1. Personal data of the vaccinated person (at least name, surname (s) and date of birth or identity card or passport number)
  2. Date of vaccination, number of doses;
  3. Brand of the vaccine;
  4. Name of the disease against which it was vaccinated;
  5. Badges that allow the person or institution responsible for the vaccination or the issuance of the certificate to be identified, for example, an official symbol or the name of the issuer.
  6. It is not necessary to apostille the certificate or present it at the embassy.

People who have recovered from the disease only need to have received one dose. In order to verify their status of being fully vaccinated, people who have recovered from the disease must also present proof that they suffered from the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus infection before their vaccination. This proof of disease consists of a positive PCR test. The recovery voucher must be presented in German, English, French, Italian or Spanish (in paper or digital format) and does not require an apostille.

World situation. General considerations
Due to the advancement of vaccination worldwide, documentation and testing restrictions have been eliminated in many countries. In fact, in some countries, by presenting the complete vaccination certificate against Coronavirus, RT-PCR or antigen test results are no longer required, nor is a health affidavit form.

However, we insist once again, that in the situation of constant changes, it is always important to consult and finalize details with the airline and, if necessary, with the airport as well as, in the case of international flights, with the embassy or consulate near the final destination, and also with the countries involved for connecting flights, if any.
In this sense, it is useful to review the International Map of the current restrictions of each country.
