Current information on Covid-19 in Germany:
The number of new infections reported daily are currently going down and many sectors are open again without any restrictions. Nevertheless, the number of new infections reported daily is still at a high level. However, the general COVID-situation in Germany is stable and more and more protective measures were abolished. It is recommended that you take personal responsibility to protect yourself to avoid infection with the Sars-CoV-2 virus (e.g. wearing protective masks in supermarkets, social distancing, etc.). The obligation to wear an FFP2 mask remains in place in local public transport (public transport / e.g. in buses or trains), in public buildings and in healthcare facilities (hospitals, medical practice etc.). There may be regional differences in protective measures, especially regarding the obligation to wear a mask, so it is recommended to always carry an FFP2 mask with you. The FFP2 masks can be bought in drugstores, pharmacies and sometimes also in supermarkets.
In principle, people who have received 3 vaccinations (“boostered”) with a vaccine approved by the EU (BioN-Tech, Moderna, Johnson&Johnson, Novavax, AstraZeneca) are considered to be fully vaccinated. The last vaccination must be at least 3 months apart from the previous vaccination. Please note that the status "fully vaccinated" applies 14 days after the third vaccination.
If you have only received the booster vaccination with a vaccine approved in the EU (and e.g. the first two vaccinations with Sinovac), we strongly recommend that you do a PCR test (not older than 48 hours upon departure) before you travel. In this way, any complications that may arise when entering Germany can be avoided.
We also recommend that you have a digital vaccination certificate issued (download "Corona certificate for travel” at SANAD) and save it in the CoVPass app (Android/iOs) which is valid throughout the EU. This makes it easier to prove your vaccination status in Germany.
