What are the Covid 19 rules when traveling to Germany?
Connected to the EU Digital COVID Certificate (EUDCC), which allows restriction-free travel across all EU and EEA countries following proof of vaccination and a negative COVID test.
Germany is operating a ‘green pass’ for entry into public spaces.
Travellers entering the country need to fill out a digital registration form before they travel and must have proof of full vaccination or a negative COVID test.
Unvaccinated travellers from high-risk countries will have to self-isolate for up to ten days on arrival in Germany. This can be shortened by submitting a negative test on or after the fifth day of quarantine. Arrivals from these countries will also have to register on Germany’s Digital Entry Portal.
UK tourists who are fully vaccinated are allowed into Germany without showing a negative COVID-19 test or quarantining for 14 days on arrival. The UK will also be classified as a high-risk area, according to a statement on the German embassy’s website.
Arrivals from other areas of variant of concern are subject to different rules.
German regions have some authority to set their own restrictions leading to new restrictions being put in place since mid-November. It is best to research where you are going to find out what restrictions are in place at the time, as they can change at short notice.
Simply follow the instructions on the test kit provided. All test require the use of a swab.
To ensure safe travel, some airlines require proof that travelers are fit to fly. This means you need to have proof of a negative Covid test prior to your flight. Our tests are delivered to your home so you can take your test and receive a Fit to Fly Certificate in time for your trip.
We use Royal Mail 'Tracked 24' - in the majority of cases, tests sent via a priority postbox, before the last collection time, will arrive at the laboratory the next day (excluding Sundays and bank holidays).
In a small number of cases deliveries by Royal Mail can be delayed, this would delay your result. You may leave your house to post your test.
All of our laboratories state that results will be available within 24 hours of test sample receipt although often it is quicker than that.
You will receive an email from the laboratory.
You can easily create your own unique test reference number.
Always use our unique identifier CTLSS and the your date of birth in 6 number format ( as the example bellow) then simply add 1 to the end of your date of birth if you purchased a single test.
If you ordered two tests and one is for another person please add 2 to the end of your date of birth. This creates the identifier for the second test.
The first example below is for date of birth 26th August 1954 and one test.
The second example is for the same date of birth but for 2 tests.
The reference number contain 7 numbers.
Example 1 -CTLSS2608541
Example 2 -CTLSS2608542
