Germany is removing the entry ban and easing travel rules for five countries where the Delta variant is widespread, including the UK, Portugal and India.
Portugal, Britain and Northern Ireland, Russia, India and Nepal will be removed from the ‘virus variant’ list from Wednesday.
It means that the entry ban currently in place will be lifted. Meanwhile, people who are fully vaccinated or have recovered from Covid-19 coming from ‘high incidence’ areas do not have to quarantine. They can also show their proof of vaccination/recovery before boarding a flight to Germany instead of a negative Covid test.
People coming from ‘high incidence’ areas who aren’t vaccinated have to provide a negative Covid test before departure to Germany, and quarantine for 10 days on arrival with the option to end it after five days with a negative Covid test.
