Can I travel through time

Traveling in the corona crisis: Where travel is currently possible

The more people get their first or even their second vaccination, the greater the desire to travel again. However, the Federal Foreign Office continues to warn against unnecessary tourist trips abroad. Since last autumn there have been different travel and safety information as well as travel warnings for individual countries.

However, the European countries have very different rules when it comes to German travelers - because some classify Germany as a risk area, while others do not. Most countries use the European traffic light system based on the incidence figures, so Germany is currently classified as orange. Croatia, for example, only allows travelers from countries listed in green. A negative test result is required for entry into practically every European country, but individual countries exempt those who have recovered or are fully vaccinated from this obligation.

There are also a few things to consider on the return journey. Germany classifies individual countries as virus variant, high incidence or risk areas. However, the obligation to a ten-day quarantine will no longer apply to anyone who is recognized as fully vaccinated or who has contracted Covid-19 within the last six months and is considered to have recovered. Children under six years of age and people who can show a negative corona test on return are also excluded. "According to the current state of scientific knowledge, vaccinated and recovered persons are treated equally. A so-called recovery or vaccination certificate is recognized as equivalent to the test certificate (exception: previous stay in a virus variant area)," says the ordinance of the Federal Ministry of Health.

In this map we keep the dates and rules that apply to individual countries up to date. Due to the dynamic situation, however, we cannot guarantee that the latest status will always be displayed. Regarding transit and onward travel, the rules differ in individual cases from those mentioned on the card. You can find detailed information on the individual countries on the Federal Foreign Office's country overview.
