The German Ministry of Health plans to cancel some “covid” decisions on entry into the country for tourists for the summer, including the 3G rule. However, experts note that the decision is disappointing: firstly, the cancellation was announced only until the end of August, i.e. there is a risk that restrictions will return again in the fall. Secondly, there are also restrictions for countries that are considered the “zone of the spread of the virus”, although so far there is not a single country on this list.
N.B. Earlier, Turprom wrote that “Germany has simplified visa entry rules for Russians: it has been announced who can take advantage of the concessions.”
German Health Minister Karl Lauterbach announced to local media that from June 1, Germany will lift several travel restrictions imposed due to COVID-19. he also noted literally the following: “Until the end of August, we will suspend the 3G rule for entry.” As a reminder, this rule requires incoming tourists to present a valid certificate of vaccination, recovery or testing to enter the country. Until the end of May, therefore, only those who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 are allowed to enter Germany, while the unvaccinated cannot enter the country unless they are traveling for essential reasons. As a result, it was decided to cancel this rule for the summer season, since Europe as a whole “cancels” the coronavirus, however, officials retained the possibility of restarting this regime.
» Travel restrictions will continue to apply, including a 14-day quarantine upon arrival, regardless of vaccination status. Currently, no country on the German list is considered a zone for the spread of the virus and new strains, but again, officials have retained this possibility.
“If such areas are identified, people entering the country must pass quarantine. Even with lower incidence rates in the summer, we must remain cautious in the event of a global pandemic,” said the head of the German Ministry of Health.
