Germany removes India from the list of high-risk areas
The German Government has lifted all travel restrictions for persons residing in India. Travel to Germany for all purposes is permitted again from India. However, proof of vaccination, proof of recovery from COVID-19, or negative test result is still required for entry.
All Indian travellers 12 years and older who are entering the Federal Republic of Germany must either show that they are fully vaccinated or fully recovered or have tested negative prior to departure.
Travellers who received all the required doses of a COVID-19 vaccine cited on the website of the Paul Ehrlich Institute are considered fully vaccinated. A period of at least 14 days must have elapsed since receiving the last vaccine dose.
Persons vaccinated with Covaxin or any other vaccine which is not recognised by the Paul Ehrlich Institute have to carry a negative PCR test report which is not older than 72 hours on entry in Germany.
Vaccinated travellers must additionally show no relevant symptoms. Travellers who can prove they were previously infected with COVID through a positive PCR test, taken at
least 28 days but no more than six months prior, and who show no relevant symptoms are considered to be fully recovered.
Travellers who are neither fully vaccinated nor fully recovered must continue to present a negative COVID test prior to departure. Both PCR tests and rapid antigen tests are accepted. www.traveltradejournal.com OCTOBER | 2021
