  • Country-Specific Information:

    • The Department of State has issued a Global Level 4 Health Advisory advising U.S. citizens not to travel abroad due to the global impact of COVID-19.
    • The German CDC-equivalent, the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), has confirmed 187,184 cases of COVID-19 within Germany’s borders. We have observed a one-to-two-day lag in these numbers as they move from German states to the federal level.
    • There are 8,830 reported fatalities from COVID-19 within Germany.
  • Entry and Exit Requirements:

    • Germany, along with other EU member states, is limiting entry to EU citizens and residents. U.S. citizens who are not residents of the EU and do not fall into one of several narrow exceptions will be denied entry to Germany.  Travelers should be prepared for the possibility that additional travel restrictions will be implemented with little or no advance notice.  The most up-to-date information on German border and airport control measures can be found here: German MoI – FAQ
  • Quarantine Information:

    •  COVID-19 mitigation efforts are subject to local regulation. This can include quarantine measures in the case of a confirmed infection. The German health ministry advises that anyone who has been in contact with a person diagnosed with the COVID-19, or who have spent time in a risk area, should contact the health office responsible for their location, even if they have no symptoms. You can find the search
      function for locating the responsible health office here.
