Introduction of a 3-level classification of risk areas when entering Germany

The new Coronavirus Entry Regulation aims to minimise the entry of SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus infections from areas with an increased or particularly high risk of SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus infection.

The risk areas are divided into the following levels:

  • Level 1: High-risk areas
  • Level 2: High-risk areas with incidence >200
  • Level 3: Risk areas with certain virus mutations

Risk area level 1: After a stay in a risk area, before entering the country, travellers must - as before - fill out a digital entry declaration. After staying in a risk area, entrants must have proof of testing at the latest 48 hours after their entry and present it to the competent authority upon request. Proof is a medical certificate or a test result regarding the absence of infection with the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus.

Risk area level 2 and 3: For persons entering from certain risk areas with a particularly high risk, increased requirements are imposed correlating to the qualified risk situation: This concerns persons who have stayed in a risk area for which a particularly high risk of infection with the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus has been identified, because in this risk area there is either a particularly high incidence for the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus (high-incidence area = level 2) or certain variants of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus have occurred there in a widespread manner (virus variant area = level 3). After a stay in such a risk area, it is obligatory to carry the above-mentioned proof with you upon entry and to present it to the competent authority within the meaning of the Infection Protection Act upon request.

Areas with a particularly high risk are areas in which there is a particular risk of entry due to the spread of mutations of the virus or particularly high incidences. These are published on the website of the Robert Koch Institute.

Status: 14 January 2021, 10:00 a.m.

From 11 January 2021: Introduction of compulsory testing throughout Germany for entry from risk areas

From 11 January, there will be a testing obligation for entry into Germany from risk areas. The testing obligation upon entry can be fulfilled by testing within 48 hours before arrival or by testing immediately after entry.

The Germany-wide testing obligation applies in addition to the existing ten-day quarantine obligation. This can be terminated prematurely as soon as a negative test result is available from a coronary test taken on the fifth day of quarantine at the earliest.

Status: 6 January 2021, 2:00 p.m.

Cuba: from 10 January 2021 Travelers must present a negative PCR test upon entry

With the decision of 20.12.2020 the Cuban government has decided that from 10 January 2021 all international travelers must present a negative PCR test upon entry and therefore also at check-in in Germany. The test must not be older than 72 hours on arrival and must have been issued by a certified laboratory. If you cannot show a negative test result at check-in, you may be excluded from your transport to Cuba.

Tenerife: Entry for tourists still possible

According to concordant information from the Foreign Office and the regional government of Tenerife, tourists are exempt from the entry bans. For the entry of tourists to Tenerife, there is therefore the exemption that they can find accommodation in "tourist accommodation establishments" if they present a negative Coronatest there. In order to enter the Canary Islands, a PCR test is still required in accordance with the regulation that applies to the whole of Spain.

Entry regulations for the Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic remains classified as a risk area. The borders of the Dominican Republic are open to the entry of foreigners.

From 29 November 2020, all travelers must fill out a standardized electronic form ('e-ticket') for entry and departure purposes. It replaces all previous forms for entry, customs and health purposes. Additional information is provided by the Dominican Migration Authority.

Random COVID-19 rapid tests are carried out at airports on entry. Travellers are obliged to participate in this - unless they can present a negative test result, which must not be older than 5 days before entry. If the test result is positive, a COVID-19 PCR test will be carried out; if it is also positive, the traveller must be placed in quarantine. For this purpose, the Ministry of Health has set up isolation wards where travellers receive the necessary care.

Restrictions in the country
The state of emergency will remain in force until 1 December 2020, with a nationwide curfew from 21.00 to 5.00 Monday to Friday and from 19.00 to 5.00 on Saturdays and Sundays. The scheme has been extended until 1 December 2020 and will then be reviewed.
Hotels are open, but are subject to special distance and hygiene rules and may only accommodate a certain number of guests.

Hygiene rules

  • Wearing a mouth and nose protector and keeping your distance in public is mandatory. When entering public places such as airports, shopping centres, restaurants etc., temperature measurements are taken regularly.

The quarantine lasts at least three days for persons without symptoms and 14 days for persons with symptoms. The costs of treatment, quarantine and tests can be transferred from the resort to the guest in accordance with the applicable regulations.
  • The Maldivian government recommends travellers to use the local tracing app TraceEkee.

Restrictions in the country
There is currently a public health emergency declared by the government. The stay of travellers is generally limited to the booked resort. For planned stays in several resorts, a so-called split stay can be applied for at the Maldivian Ministry of Tourism.

Adjustment concerning the entry into Cuba

We would like to inform you about an adjustment concerning the entry into Cuba, which the local authorities have issued:

  • For departures after December 1, 2020, new regulations require us to pay the costs of the PCR tests required upon entry. The costs for the tests amount to 25 EUR or 30 US dollars and are to be paid at the check-in or gate on your departure from Frankfurt. Payment is possible in cash or by credit card.
  • You are still required by local regulations to carry a credit card with you upon arrival. Should you wish to use cash on site, we recommend that you carry a sufficient amount of cash in euros or US dollars, as you may not be able to with-draw cash from local ATMs due to Cuba's current monetary policy.

New entry regulations for the Canary Islands from 23 November 2020

Travelers must fill out a form on the Spain Travel Health portal for health checks, which generates a QR code. This code will be checked at departure. Registration can be done at the earliest 48 hours before intended entry.

The result must be available electronically or in paper form in English or Spanish and must contain the following information: Name of the traveler, passport or identity card number (this number must be identical to the passport/identity card number used in the electronic entry form), date of test acceptance, contact details of the laboratory, name of the laboratory technician, negative test result.

  • From 1 December 2020, a fee of 30 US dollars will be charged to all travellers for the PCR tests, which will be added directly to the price of the flight ticket.
