Who Is Obliged to Self-Isolate for 14 Days?

Quarantine upon arrival from a risk area remains one of the main tools the German authorities keep using to prevent the possible spread of the infection in the country, by those arriving from abroad.

Rules of Quarantine

Those who are obliged to quarantine must follow the directions of the authorities, and comply with the rules, as in Germany violating the rules of self-isolation is punishable with a fine or imprisonment.

Upon arrival in Germany, travellers must go straight to their destination and isolate themselves for 14 days.

Who Is Exempt From Quarantine?

Even those coming from high-risk areas may be exempted from the obligation of self-quarantine:
* They are transiting through Germany, to their destination country
(provided they must leave Germany immediately)
* They provide negative test results/take one test upon arrival
(Present a valid proof of negative test result taken within a maximum of
48 hours before entry)

Those who do not have a test can choose to take it upon entry at the place of crossing the border or at their place of residence in Germany.

The Ministry of Health has suggested to the government to make testing for travellers from high-risk areas mandatory, and thus a corresponding regulation is to come within the week

“According to the decision of the health ministers, travellers from non-risk areas should be offered voluntary tests within 72 hours, but not directly at the airport. Regardless of the place of departure, the tests will be free of charge.”

Travellers will also need to fill out an exit ticket.
