Germany has extended the facilitated entry procedure until January 31, 2023

The German authorities have released press release explaining the procedure for entering the country. All tourists can still travel to Germany without any coronavirus restrictions.

Thus, until January 31, 2023, anyone can enter Germany without presenting a vaccination certificate, a certificate of recovery or a negative test.

“Entry to Germany will remain facilitated until January 31: anyone entering Germany does not need to prove that they have been vaccinated against the coronavirus, recovered from it or have been tested,” — The government said in a statement.

However, officials stress that existing strict registration, confirmation and quarantine rules remain in place for foreigners from areas infected with the virus. But this is a theory.

In practice, entry without certificates and other certificates is really allowed for everyone, since currently in the “red” there is not a single dangerous country on the list of Germany. 

As a reminder, from October 1, new nationwide measures to combat and protect against COVID-19 come into effect in Germany.

The Bundestag approved the proposal of the Ministry of Health of September 8. The new set of requirements aims to prepare and protect Germany from the spread of the coronavirus during the cold winter months.

In accordance with the new rules, from Saturday, October 1, the entire population over the age of 14 will be required to wear an FFP2 mask on long-distance trains .

Children between the ages of six and 13 are also required to wear masks on trains, but they can get by with a regular surgical mask.

Covid-19 regulations are tightening in nursing homes and hospitals. Starting October 1st, all nursing home and hospital staff, as well as visitors, must wear FFP2 masks. In addition, visitors will be allowed inside only if they have a negative rapid test, and staff will be required to take tests three times a week. 

In the past seven days, a total of 316,201 new cases of COVID-19 infection have been recorded in Germany .
