Germany Lifts Travel Ban From UK

Germany eases its restrictions for those travelling from the UK, Portugal, Russia, India and Nepal, instead of being class has “virus variant areas” will now be considered “high-incidence areas”, which means that fully vaccinated travellers and people with antibodies will not be required to quarantine upon arrival in Germany.

Travellers who have not received two vaccine doses will still be required to quarantine for 10-days, with the option to end self-isolation early with a negative test on the 5th day.

This comes after German chancellor Angela Merkel’s visit to the UK last week. Germany introduced the travel ban in late May due to the spread of the Delta and Delta Plus variants.

Germany is still on the UK’s ‘amber’ list, meaning that returning travellers will have to isolate for 10-days.
