A subordinate to the Federal Ministry of Health – RKI, came out with a statement saying that many countries in the EU and Schengen Area have had a decline in the Covid-19 cases throughout these weeks.
RKI further advises to put the following places to the low-risk places:
- Norway – provinces of Trøndelag and Troms og Finnmark
According to the RKI, EU countries and other regions or countries are divided into 4 lists; 1. Virus variant areas, 2. High incidence areas, 3. Risk areas and 4. Low-risk areas.
Countries which are part of the virus variant list such as Uruguay are banned to enter Germany. Spared from the ban are legal residents of Germany, German citizens, their spouses or partners and children as well. For those who take a connecting flight, they can’t leave the transit zone of the airport, along with some other cases which are spared from such measures.
Travelers from these places need to have the negative Covid-19 test results when they go to the German port of entry. Also, registration beforehand is required.
However, travelers from the high incidence places need to have one of the following for them to be allowed to enter Germany:
- A negative Covid-19 test result
- Proof of recovery from an infection
- Proof of a full Covid-19 vaccination
Apart from this, they are also required to quarantine for 10 days. Registration beforehand is also necessary.
