Information on Covid-19 testing at German airports

At many German airports, it is possible to be tested for Covid-19. This is usually an RT-PCR test (Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction Test), which detects whether there is an acute infection with the Covid-19 virus.

New regulations for persons entering Germany from a risk area

Entry into and return from foreign Corona risk areas to the Federal Republic of Germany is subject to various regulations. These regulations refer to regions that are classified as risk areas by the Robert Koch Institute and include, among other things, registration and testing obligations as well as a quarantine obligation. The entry regulations are always adapted by the authorities to meet current requirements.

Since 1 December 2020, the test is subject to a fee for those entering from risk areas. Test centres are available in Frankfurt, Munich and many other German airports for possible tests.
