Prior to travel

The Federal Foreign Office points out that in view of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, there are still risks associated with international travel, especially for people without full vaccination protection as well as vulnerable groups. Regulations on entry or international transport connections can change quickly with the pandemic situation.

The so-called 3G rule for entry into Germany has been suspended until the end of September 2022. Since 1 June, people entering Germany no longer have to prove that they have been vaccinated, have recovered or have been tested. As regards air travel, masks must generally be worn on all flights if mask-wearing is compulsory in either the country of departure or the country of destination. The implementation is enforced by the operating airline and may therefore vary. Travellers are advised to carry at least one mask with them at all times. For information on mask mandates, please see the respective category.
