In addition, the government strongly recommends the wearing of masks (preferably FFP2) in indoor areas accessible to the public, the observance of the minimum distance and the compliance with the hygiene rules in general.
6. When entering Germany, you are generally required to provide a negative test result to proof the non-existence of infection with the Corona virus, which must not be older than 48 hours. Exceptions exist for persons who have been fully vaccinated with an EU-approved vaccine, for convalescents who have a certified convalescent certificate and for children under 12 years of age. For more information, please see the following link:
7. If you develop Corona-typical symptoms such as cough, fever, cold, disturbance of the sense of smell and/or taste during your stay in Germany, you are obliged to test yourself for the existence of the Corona virus at least with a rapid antigen test, which you can have carried out in any pharmacy, in a test center or by a doctor.
8. If you contract an infection with the Corona virus during your stay in Germany, you must immediately isolate yourself and, if not already available, arrange a PCR test appointment, which you can have carried out in any pharmacy, in a test center or by a doctor.
