Germany removes Romania from the list of countries at high risk of COVID-19
Germany will update the list of countries that are severely affected by COVID-19. Following the update, five countries will be removed from the high-risk list starting Sunday, December 12th.
The new list update was published by the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), the body responsible for disease prevention and control in Germany. According to the announcement, the following countries will no longer be on the high-risk list:
Based on the current rules of entry into Germany, the decision means that from 12 December, vaccinated and recovered travelers arriving in Germany from one of the above-mentioned countries will be required to comply with less stringent entry rules.
Travelers from Armenia, Iran, Mongolia, the Philippines and Romania who have been completely vaccinated or recovered from COVID-19 disease will no longer have to register before traveling to Germany. In addition, travelers from these countries will also be exempted from the quarantine requirement.
On the other hand, strict entry rules will continue to apply to unvaccinated travelers arriving in Germany from one of the countries to be removed from the high-risk list. They may enter Germany only for absolutely essential purposes, provided that they comply with the entry rules, such as testing and quarantine requirements.
