Negative Covid-19 test result required for entry into Germany
As of 30 March 2021 (date of planned entry into Germany) stricter regulations will apply for entry into the Federal Republic of Germany. All passengers from the age of 6 must present a negative Covid-19 test result (PCR, antigen, RT-LAMP or TMA) at the time of departure. The general requirement to test and provide proof upon departure thus also applies to entry from non-risk and risk areas. The proof of the negative Covid-19 test must not be older than 48 hours at the time of entry and is checked by the airline before departure. Carriage is not possible without negative proof of testing.
Please note: Contrary to what was originally communicated, the obligation to provide proof of testing also applies to transit passengers who are entering Germany for transit purposes only – even if they do not leave the transit area in Frankfurt or Munich.
Note on the stipulated requirements for the Covid-19 test result for entering Germany:
- The test result has to be available as a printout or in electronic form
- The certificate needs to be personalised (including name, address, date of birth of the person tested)
- It has to be available in the German, English or French language
- The proof must include the test method and the test result
- The test result needs to be validated by a physician or a recognised laboratory
Please note that the mandatory quarantine continues to apply for all travelers entering Germany from a risk, high risk and virus variant area. In addition, travelers are required to complete the Digital Entry Application (DEA) or a substitute application prior to departure. There are only a few exceptions to these rules.
