Information on entering Germany during Corona

EU-wide entry restrictions remain in force. For Germany, these restrictions are issued by the Federal Ministry of the Interior and Community (BMI). Please check with the BMI prior to your trip to find out what regulations apply specifically with regard to the country from which you plan to enter Germany.

In principle, entry is possible from:

  • EU member states
  • states associated with Schengen: Iceland, Norway, Switzerland and Liechtenstein
  • other countries from which entry is possible in light of the epidemiological situation assessment by the EU.

Entry from any other country for any purposse (including visits and tourism)  is only possible for fully vaccinated people. The vaccination must have taken place with one or different vaccines approved by the European Union with at least two doses. In countries outside the European Union equivalent vaccines may be used. A list of these vaccines is available here.

Travel bans from countries affected by coronavirus variants​​​​​​​

A travel ban is in place for countries with widespread occurrence of SARS-CoV-2 virus variants of concern (referred to as areas of variant of concern). Transport companies, e.g. air carriers and railway companies, may not transport any persons from these countries to Germany.

Digital entry registration

Travellers who have visited a high-risk area or area of variant of concern in the last ten days must register at before arriving in Germany and carry proof of registration with them upon entry.
