Key Points

  • COVID-19 related entrance measures extended until May 31, 2022


The government of Germany announced that it would extend current COVID-19-related entrance measures until May 31, 2022. Currently, these measures include presenting one of the following:

  • A valid COVID-19 vaccination certificate, OR
  • Proof of having recovered from COVID-19 in the past 28-90 days, OR
  • Proof of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of departure or rapid antigen test taken within 48 hours of departure

Travelers are not required to undergo quarantine when entering Germany, regardless of vaccination status. Travelers who have spent time in a high-risk area in the past ten days must also carry a German government-issued “digital registration on entry paper” to demonstrate that they have been approved to enter Germany.

What are the Changes?

The government of Germany will extend COVID-19 related entrance measures until May 31, 2022. Travelers will still be permitted to enter Germany but must adhere to all COVID-19-related entrance requirements.
