Tests for the coronavirus are available to travellers at German airports. This includes an RT-PCR test (Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction test) which determines whether an acute COVID-19 infection is present.

New regulations for travellers entering Germany from a high-risk area

Since 8 November 2020, travellers arriving in Germany from countries considered to be coronavirus high-risk areas have been required to self-isolate for 10 days. They have the option of paying for a COVID-19 test after five days and ending their self-isolation early if the test is negative.

Germany’s new model quarantine regulation stipulates that certain groups of people may be exempted from the obligation to self-isolate by a negative test result under certain conditions (e.g. demonstrably necessary business trips of up to five days). Since 1 December 2020 travellers arriving from high-risk areas have been required to pay for their coronavirus tests. Test centres are available at Frankfurt, Munich and many other German airports if you need a coronavirus test.

All persons entering Germany are required to complete the Digital Entry Application (DEA) or a substitute application prior to departure.

To find out which regions are currently considered to be official high-risk areas and entry from which requires a 10-day self-isolation period, please consult the websites of the German Government and the Robert Koch Institute.
