The Federal Foreign Office points out that in view of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, there are still risks associated with international travel, especially for people without full vaccination protection as well as vulnerable groups. Regulations on entry or international transport connections can change quickly with the pandemic situation.

Travel to the border area with Somalia (approx. 100 km distance from the border), including Lamu Province, is strongly advised against. Non-essential travel to Lamu Island and Manda Island, as well as to the immediate vicinity of the city of Wajir, is also advised against.

Since June 2022, the so-called '3G rule' has been suspended for entry into Germany, i.e. entrants no longer have to prove that they have either been vaccinated, recovered, or tested. The regulation has been extended until 31 January 2023. As regards air travel, masks must generally be worn on all flights if mask-wearing is compulsory in either the country of departure or the country of destination. The implementation is enforced by the operating airline and may therefore vary. Travellers are advised to carry at least one mask with them at all times. For information on mask mandates, please see the respective category.
