00:00 – 1st Clue Europe to Open To US Travellers: Germany Downgrades US Coronavirus Travel Risk Status
01:22 – Germany COVID- 19 Update: Downgrades U.S. risk status
The United States is no longer classed as a “high incidence area” by Germany and has returned to being a “risk area”.
The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) changed the risk classification of the United States on 07 March 2021. The U.S. was previously classed as a “high incidence area” by the RKI.
These are regions where the incidence is over 200 Covid-19 cases per 100,000 residents with a period of seven days.
However, now it’s a “risk area” which is used by German authorities to describe a region with an increased risk of infection, usually above 50 coronavirus cases per 100,000 people in seven days.
It means the travel requirements for people coming from the US to Germany have changed.
02:32 – Travel from the US to Germany
If you are a German resident from the US, or fall into one of the exception categories, you still face strict testing and quarantine measures.
All travellers must have a negative Covid-19 test result at the latest 48 hours after they enter Germany. It must be presented to authorities if they request it.
Testing is still mandatory even if travellers are vaccinated or have recovered from a coronavirus infection.
People returning from “risk zones” are required to self-isolate for 10 days after they arrive.
03:52 – Germany Entry Ban
In the Robert Koch Institute’s latest travel classification list, Sweden, Hungary and Jordan are now classed as “high incidence areas” which means stricter testing and quarantine rules apply if they want to enter Germany.
Travellers from Austria’s Tyrol region, the UK, Brazil, Portugal and Ireland, and Czech Republic are banned from entering the territory except for those exempted from the ban.
Travellers from African countries such as Botswana, Eswatini, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, South Africa, Zambia, and Zimbabwe are also banned from entering Germany.
04:52 – Future of International Travel
When and where people will be able to travel again in the spring and summer will depend on whether the number of new infections can be reduced.
The restrictions on travel in Germany are limited for the time being until 28 March 2021.
