New rules for travels to Germany
Dear guests, we inform you that, starting from Sunday 1 August, anyone who enters Germany regardless of the country of origin and the means of transport used, must have, before entry or boarding, documentation that proves to be vaccinated (German legislation considers "vaccinated" people who have completed the vaccination cycle for at least 14 days if the vaccine includes two doses), to be cured, or to have contracted the coronavirus infection for no less than 28 days and no more than six months earlier, having tested negative with a rapid antigen swab (performed in the 48 hours prior to entry into Germany) or molecular PCR (performed within the previous 72 hours). This obligation does not apply to children under 12 and very limited exceptions provided for by the law. The documentation on vaccination, recovery or the outcome of the swab can be written in Italian, German, English, French or Spanish. There is no obligation to register to enter Germany, but it is necessary to have a green certification, in paper or digital format, to show in case of a possible control. In addition to this obligation, there are other health obligations, which however apply only to those who, in the 10 days prior to entering Germany, have been in countries considered "at risk". Italy is not currently among the areas considered "at risk" by Germany: from 1 August, therefore, those who in the 10 days prior to arrival in Germany were only in Italy, must only prove that they have been vaccinated, cured or have a negative test. Transit through Austria without intermediate stops is allowed without restrictions. However, delays at the borders are possible. Passengers in transit are exempt from the obligation of electronic registration and submission of a negative test in Austria.
