#WhatsNewWednesday: Germany Allowing Non-Vaccinated Travelers In

Germany

Howdy! In today’s #WhatsNewWednesday post we have news out of Germany – who is now allowing unvaccinated Americans to enter the country – with guidelines of course.

Here are the details according to the Schengen Visa Info website:

  • American nationals who haven’t been vaccinated yet, as well as those who haven’t recently recovered from the Coronavirus, can travel to Germany under facilitated rules starting from the upcoming Sunday, November 14.
  • Among others, they will be able to skip quarantine and multiple testing for COVID-19
    .
  • For Americans, being removed from the high-risk list means that they can now travel to Germany without having to undergo quarantine upon arrival into the country. They will, however, need to get tested for COVID-19 if they have not been vaccinated against the virus, nor recovered from it recently.
  • “All immigrants – regardless of whether they have been in a high-risk area or virus variant area or not – are obliged to have proof of the absence of an infection with the SARS – CoV -2 coronavirus ( proof of vaccination, test, recovery) upon entry,” the German Ministry of Health explains in its ordinance of November 8, which lays out the new COVID-19 entry rules.
  • Only children under the age of 12 are exempt from this requirement.
  • For travelers over 12 who are not vaccinated, the test must be taken within the last 72 hours before they arrive in Germany, if it is a PCR test, whereas antigen tests should be taken within the prior 24 hours only.

Hawaiian Islands Overview

Did you know that Aloha doesn’t mean hello? Although it is often used as a greeting, it really is so much more than that. As Robin explained it’s actually a value system that’s woven into the fabric of the Hawaiian people with a deep meaning. The term Aloha actually means “the breath of life” in Hawaiian so it’s literally giving and receiving the breath of life. And you know you really can’t have a more intimate connection with someone than letting them know your essence and it’s something that is really intangible.
