New travel rules in Germany: all travelers must show proof of vaccination, negative test or proof of recovery from COVID-19 infection!
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs reports that the German authorities have revised the conditions for entry into the Federal Republic of Germany in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to the information published by the German authorities, as of 1 August 2021, all persons at least 12 years of age must present, on entering the territory of the Federal Republic of Germany, either evidence of vaccination against COVID-19or proof of going through the disease or negative result of a COVID-19 test.
Documents may be submitted on paper or in electronic format and must be written in one of the languages German, English, French, Italian or Spanish.
Thus, proof of vaccination is accepted only if the vaccination schedule with a European Union approved vaccine is complete and at least 14 days have elapsed since the last dose of vaccine.
Proof of previous infection with the SARS-CoV-2 virus and, implicitly, of the cure is based on a laboratory test performed at least 28 days, but not more than 6 months before entering German territory.
The proof of testing for SARS-CoV-2 virus infection is provided by presenting the negative result of a PCR-type test performed no more than 72 hours before entry into German territory or of an antigen test performed no more than 48 hours before. The rules apply regardless of the method of access to German territory (air, land, naval).
Obligation to register entry into Germany
Obligation to register entry into Germany applies to all persons who in the last 10 days prior to entry into German territory have been in risk areas. To this end, passengers must register all the required data online, as well as upload any supporting documents for testing, vaccination or cure, and receive a confirmation in a .pdf document.
Confirmation must be available and can be presented / handed over at the request of the authorities or the transport company. The entire procedure can be performed, including in Romanian, through the portal: www.einreiseanmeldung.de.
The persons who cannot make the digital registration mentioned above will fill in a substitute form, the English version of which can be downloaded from the website: https://www.bundesgesundheitsministerium.de.
If the replacement form is not requested by any authority or transport company, then passengers are required to make the digital entry immediately after entering Germany or, alternatively, to send the form by post to the following address: Deutsche Post E-POST Solutions GmbH, 69990 Mannheim.
