The government of Germany recently declared that several COVID-19 travel bans will be lifted beginning June 1, making it simpler for vacationers to come into the country. Karl Lauterbach, Germany’s Health Minister, provided the update. The country’s 3G rule, which requires proof of negative test results, recovery, or vaccination, will be abolished.
The country’s 3G rule, which requires proof of negative test results, recovery, or vaccination, will be abolished. “Until the end of August,” the minister informed a local newspaper, “we will halt the 3G rule on entry.”
By doing so, Germany has become one of the last European Union (EU) countries to relax the COVID-19 travel restrictions for international visitors. Several Coronavirus limitations appear to have been lifted in Germany during the month of April.
There have been stringent regulations in place for those coming from “virus variant” or “high-risk” nations. However, according to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) for infectious diseases, no country is actually assigned as a virus variant area.
“Whenever such areas are defined,” the minister continued, “people entering the country must go into isolation.” Even with lower summer incidences, we must be careful in the incident of a worldwide pandemic.”
Even the total count of Omicron cases in the country has decreased significantly. The German government stated last week that it would spend EUR 830 million on the purchase of new COVID-19 shots that will protect citizens against various strains of the virus. According to the minister, they must be ready for any eventuality.
