Berlin: Germany’s Public Health Institute on Monday announced to lift the travel ban and ease travel restrictions on travellers from India and other four countries that were hit by the Delta Variant of Covid-19.
Ambassador to India Walter J Lindner tweeted, “From tomorrow, Germany is removing the entry ban and easing travel rules for five countries where Delta variant is widespread, including India.”
The Robert Koch Institute said, “India, Nepal, Russia, Portugal and the UK had been downgraded to high incidence areas, meaning their citizens can now travel to Germany and quarantine on arrival for 10 days.”
The quarantine period can be shortened to five days if they test negative for covid-19 added to the institute.
Further, the institute stated, “If you have spent time in a high incidence area prior to entering the relevant test may not be conducted earlier than five days after entry.”
Earlier, travellers from the four countries were banned from entering Germany unless they were residents, in which case they had to quarantine for 14 days on arrival.
