Howdy! It’s #WhatsNewWednesday and today we have the pleasure of announcing that Germany has re-opened to American Tourists!
Here is the official announcement according to Germany’s Foreign Office website:
The German Government has lifted all travel restrictions for persons residing in the United States, effective Sunday, June 20, 2021. Travel to Germany for all purposes will be permitted again. However, a proof of vaccination or proof of recovery from COVID-19 or negative test result is still required for entry via air travel.
And here are the Requirements For Entry Via Air Travel as of this writing:
All air travelers six years and older who are entering the Federal Republic of Germany must either show that they are fully vaccinated or fully recovered or have tested negative prior to departure.
Travelers who received all the required doses of a COVID-19 vaccine cited on the website of the Paul Ehrlich Institute are considered fully vaccinated. It must be at least 14 days since the last vaccine dose was administered. On entry, travelers must have proof of vaccination in written (e.g. CDC card) or digital form (a cellphone photo is not sufficient). Vaccinated travelers must additionally show no relevant symptoms.
Travelers who can prove they were previously infected with COVID through a positive PCR test, taken at least 28 days but no more than six months prior, and who show no relevant symptoms are considered to be fully recovered.
