aus virus different region
Admission with only a negative PCR test
From the point of view of the Omicron version, the federal government is once again tightening the rules for virus divergence regions: those who want to enter Germany from Great Britain or South Africa must show a negative PCR test in the future. This already applies to children from the age of six.
Due to the spread of the highly contagious Omicron type of coronavirus, the federal government has tightened entry rules from virus-separated areas. Anyone entering Germany from such an area would need a negative PCR test in the future. The government made the announcement after the cabinet decision. With changes to the coronavirus entry regulation, the obligation to provide evidence and test will soon apply to everyone aged six and over.
Health ministers from federal states have previously spoken out in favor of changes to try and slow Omicron’s spread for as long as possible so that even more people can be vaccinated. The virus type zones are currently various countries in southern Africa, including South Africa and Namibia, as well as Great Britain since Monday.
As per the ordinance, strict protective precautions will help ensure that the infection is detected before entry. The PCR test obligation also applies to passengers who stop only while passing through Germany.
If you travel independently the PCR test should not be older than 48 hours after entry. If you arrive by plane, ferry, bus company or train, the test must not be older than 48 hours from the start of the journey. Since there is now the possibility of vaccination against COVID-19 for children from the age of five, the age limit for the obligation to provide evidence will be reduced to six years from the current twelve years.
