Germany suspends restrictions on entering the country in June

  • by

The German government has announced that they will be relaxing the restrictions that have been in place since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. Foreigners will therefore find it easier to enter the country. From June 1st, travelers will no longer need to provide proof of vaccination, a negative test result or show that they have recently recovered from the illness.

Up to this May, the German authorities had been asking anyone over the age of twelve, who wished to enter the country, to produce one of these documents. For now, the new recommendation will last from June to the end of August. The government wants to make it easier for people to travel over the European summer.

In other words, although the number of Covid-19 cases in Germany is falling sharply, the restrictions may well return in September. If this is the case, then Germany is expected to allow all vaccinations approved by the World Health Organization (WHO) and not just those by the European Union (EU). This would include Coronavac, which has been used in Brazil.

While the protocols for each country are still shifting, it is important that travelers are always prepared and have up to date and certified documents, in case they need to produce them. Sworn translation is essential if you wish to be certain that all foreign border authorities will accept a document.
