As of 19th December, Germany has banned non-essential travel from the UK. Only German citizens and residents may travel to the country from the UK.
The UK has been designated a virus variant area by the German government, which means that:
- Carriers such as airlines are restricted to transporting a narrow range of individuals from the UK to Germany, including British citizens who are resident in Germany, and German citizens. UK nationals resident in Germany must demonstrate proof of residence at entry to Germany.
- Tourists are not allowed to be transported to Germany. There are limited additional exemptions, which can be found here.
- Permitted travellers entering Germany from the UK are required to complete pre-departure digital registration, regardless of vaccination status.
- Permitted travellers from the UK to Germany aged 12 and over are required to have proof of a negative pre-flight test, regardless of vaccination status. This must be either a PCR or a rapid antigen test. The PCR test can be 72 hours old at entry into Germany and the rapid antigen test 24 hours at entry into Germany.
- On arrival in Germany, all permitted travellers from the UK who arrive after 23:01 on 19 December must quarantine at home for 14 days irrespective of their vaccination status.
