The German authorities have revised the conditions for entry into the Federal Republic of Germany in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, so that, starting on Sunday, all persons at least 12 years old must present, at the entrance on the territory of this country, the proof of vaccination against COVID-19, of passing through the disease or the negative result of a test, announces the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MAE).
According to the information published by the German authorities, the documents can be presented on paper or in electronic format and must be written in one of the German, English, French, Italian or Spanish languages, states an MAE press release sent on Sunday to AGERPRES.
Evidence of vaccination is accepted only if the vaccination schedule with a vaccine approved in the European Union is complete and at least 14 days have passed since the last dose of vaccine, and evidence of previous infection with SARS-CoV-2 virus and, implicitly, of getting cured is based on a laboratory test performed at least 28 days, but not more than 6 months, before entering the German territory, the same source mentions.
Also, the proof of testing for SARS-CoV-2 virus infection is made by presenting the negative result of a PCR type test performed a maximum of 72 hours before entering the German territory, or of an antigen test performed a maximum of 48 hours before.
The rules apply regardless of the method of access to German territory (air, land, sea).
