Advice for airlines

Please note: As part of Germany's new Infection Protection Act, the 3G rule is now in effect for public passenger transportation. This means that all passengers traveling on a domestic German flight must have a negative Covid-19 test, a vaccination certificate or proof of recovery ready.

Which regulations apply in another country? Depending on the passengers route, nationality and vaccination status, different regulations apply for travel under current Covid-19 conditions. Take advantage of our practical tool to get up-to-date information on travel conditions and required documents. Simply select the trip details and other parameters to get a personalized summary.

Further information on the comprehensively differentiated travel and security advisories or travel warnings for individual countries can be found at the  Federal Foreign Office and the Robert Koch Institute.

In general,  all passengers  (whether returning from a risk area or non-risk area) who wish to enter Germany by air, need to be tested  and show proof of a negative Covid-19 test before departure (vaccinated and recovered persons are only affected by this testing requirement if they have been in a virus variant area within the last ten days, in all other cases proof of vaccination or proof of recovery is sufficient). The airline is not allowed to carry passengers without a negative Covid-19 test. Children under 6 years years are exempted from the testing requirement. Further information can be found  here.

Transport companies are obliged to inform travelers about the valid entry regulations and testing obligations of the Federal Republic of Germany.

At the moment, no countries have been designated as  risk areas,    so no further regulations currently apply.

Passengers who are simply changing flights at an airport in the Federal Republic of Germany  must also comply with the obligations to provide proof of vaccination, recovery or testing specified in the Ordinance on Coronavirus Entry Regulations (Coronavirus-Einreiseverordnung).

  

For Crews the following regulations apply:

  • Entry registration:  Crews entering Germany and who have stayed in a high risk area or area of VOC during the last 10 days before entry are exempted from entry registration  (This does not apply to crews who have stayed longer than 72 hours in a VOC within the last 10 days and will stay longer than 72 hours in Germany).
  • Testing:  Crews are exempted from mandatory   testing (Exception when returning from an area of VOC: If a crew member was not able to carry an actual proof of negative covid testing, the crew member must do a PCR test immediately after arrival. It must be repeated after 10 days in case the crew member is still in Germany).
  • Quarantine:  Crews  entering Germany and who have stayed in an international high risk area or an area of VOC during the last 10 days before entry are exempted from mandatory quarantine  (This does not apply to crews who have stayed longer than 72 hours in an VOC within the last 10 days and will stay longer than 72 hours in Germany).

Our medical center is offering supplementary medical checkups and tests in "special appointments". You can get a nose and throat swab test for Sars-CoV-2 just in case or get checked for antibodies (there is a charge for both of these services).
To give our medical staff a chance to prepare and appropriately protect themselves, you must make and receive advance confirmation of an appointment via the Internet.  As self-paying or without a written declaration for assumption of costs, it is required to pay directly, e.g. with credit card.
