Germany Set To Welcome Fully Vaccinated Non-EU Travellers

Germany is now (June 25) allowing the entry of fully vaccinated travellers from countries outside of the European Union. Fourteen days after they received their last required vaccine dose, those travellers may enter Germany for any valid purpose – e.g. as a tourist or to visit family and friends – provided that they meet the general requirements of residence law according to the German Embassy.

However, travellers will need to have been vaccinated with one of the vaccines listed on the website of the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut to benefit from the eased restrictions.

Currently, only vaccines approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) are recognized ( More vaccines that offer a similar level of protection will be added to the list as soon as the necessary evaluations are completed.

Entering Germany from virus variant areas of concern is still not permitted. The rules of the Ordinance on Coronavirus Entry Regulations (Coronavirus-Einreiseverordnung), including the ban on transport from areas of variants of concern, continue to apply in full.

By allowing entry of travellers who have been fully vaccinated at least 14 days before arrival, the Federal Government is implementing the amended Recommendation (EU) 2020/912 of the Council of the European Union.
