Information on the Covid-19 test at German airports

At German airports, you can get tested for Covid-19 through quick tests. The so-called RT-PCR test (Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction Test) detects if the tested person has an acute infection with the Covid-19 virus.

New regulations for people entering Germany from a risk area

Since 8 November 2020, a 10-day quarantine obligation has been in place for arrivals from foreign corona risk areas. It is possible to be tested for Covid-19 five days after entry and to end the quarantine prematurely.

The new quarantine regulation states that certain groups of people can be exempted from the quarantine obligation under certain conditions (e.g. proven necessary business trips of up to five days) by a negative test result. Test centres are available for possible tests in Frankfurt, Munich and many other German airports.

To find out which regions are currently considered as official risk areas and where entry from these areas requires a 10-day quarantine, visit the websites of the Robert Koch Institute.
