In Germany, the federal and state governments have agreed to scale back the far-reaching Corona measures in controlled steps. Most of the stricter protective measures were ended on 20 March. However, basic protection measures such as obligatory masks indoors will continue to apply. In addition, the Federal Government no longer qualifies countries as risk areas. As a result, the quarantine and registration obligations when entering from abroad have become obsolete.
When entering Germany, however, a negative test result, proof of vaccination or proof of recovery must still be available. Proof of the test may be made at the earliest 48 hours before arrival in Germany (antigen test) or 48 hours before departure at the first boarding point (PCR, RT-LAMP or TMA test) before entry. Proof of a negative test must be available in German, English, French, Italian or Spanish in paper or digital form. (Source: www.auma.de)
According to a list of the Association of the German Trade Fair Industry AUMA, recognized vaccines so far are: Johnson & Johnson, Moderna, Oxford/AstraZeneca, Pfizer/BioNTech and Novavax. Two doses of the vaccine are required here. However, the vaccines Sinovac and Sputnik are not recognized. The proof of vaccination and testing can be provided in digital or paper form in German, English, Spanish, Italian or French.
