Germany Lifts COVID Entry Rules for All Travellers
Travellers from all countries, regardless of whether they are nationals of the EU or third countries, can now enter Germany restriction-free as the latter has already dropped all of its COVID-19 entry rules.
“As of Saturday, June 11, 2022, all COVID-19 entry restrictions to Germany will be provisionally lifted. From this date, entries to Germany will again be permitted for all travel purposes (including tourism and visiting trips),” the statement of the Federal Foreign Office reads.
This means that travellers from all over the world can now enter Germany without being required to present a valid vaccination, recovery, or test certificate upon their arrival, regardless of the reason for their trip.
Nonetheless, the authorities have noted that there is a major exception. Even though the country decided to lift its entry rules for all travellers, it has been emphasised that those travelling from the People’s Republic of China still need to provide an essential reason for their entry to Germany due to the lack of a reciprocity agreement between the two countries.
Apart from Germany, travellers can also enter several other EU/EEA countries restriction-free. The list of the countries that have dropped all of their entry rules includes Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czechia, Croatia, Cyprus, Denmark, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, Sweden, and Switzerland.
