Germany removes 14 countries from the high-risk list and adds another 7
Starting from Sunday, September 19, travellers from Antigua and Barbuda, Armenia, Barbados, Belize, Guyana, Moldova, and Venezuela will face stricter entry restrictions when travelling to Germany, as the same have been placed in the list of high-risk areas.
According to the Robert Koch Institute, which is the German agency for disease prevention and control, these countries have been added to the high-risk list due to particularly high incidences for the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 Coronavirus in the past days, Schengen Visa Info reported.
Thus, starting from Sunday, travellers from these countries who are permitted to enter Germany, aside from being obliged to fill out the digital entry form at einreiseanmeldung.de and to carry the confirmation they have received with them upon entry, will also be subject to requirements as vaccination passport, testing and quarantine.
“Travelers who have previously stayed in a high-risk area must have a test, vaccination or recovery certificate with them and, in the event that a carrier is used, present the proof for the purpose of the transport,” the RKI notes.
It also explains that travellers who have stayed in a high-risk area should isolate upon arrival for a period of ten days. The period of quarantine, however, can be ended prematurely if proof of recovery, a vaccination certificate or a negative test certificate is submitted via einreiseanmeldung.de.
According to Schengen Visa Info, for those who provide proof of recovery or vaccination immediately upon arrival, the same won’t have to quarantine. However, those who chose testing against COVID-19 as a way to end quarantine prematurely cannot do so before the fifth day of isolation.
Updating the list of countries, based on the COVID-19 spread in their territory, the RKI has also noted that the following countries are no longer part of the list:
- Ireland – the West Region
- Portugal – the Algarve region
- South Africa
This means that arrivals from these areas are no longer to all the entry requirements listed above. The RKI also notes that no new virus variant areas have been reported. Thus, currently, there are no countries listed under this category.
