Travel to a high-risk corona area is still only permitted for compelling reasons. Anyone entering Germany from a risk area must first be quarantined for ten days as a matter of principle. As of January 11th, anyone entering the country must also be tested for the novel coronavirus. The test must be taken either 48 hours before entry or immediately after entry. There are exceptions, which can be found the country’s website. These include the so-called 24-hour rule: anyone who has been abroad for less than 24 hours and was not there for tourist purposes or shopping does not have to go into quarantine and does not have to take a test. Anyone who has already contracted the coronavirus and has recovered does not have to be quarantined in the future and does not need to take the test. However, the previous infection must have been confirmed by PCR test and this test must have been performed at least 21 days ago and no more than six months ago. Those previously infected must also no longer have symptoms upon entry. This was announced by the Ministry of Social Affairs and Integration in a press release on Jan. 10.
