This means from Sunday, June 6th you will be able to enter Germany without having to do a test. Currently, you have to present proof of vaccination, negative test, or previous infection to avoid mandatory quarantine.
However, there will be a 10-day transition period before tourism is allowed to resume fully, meaning you will still
need proof of vaccination, negative test, or previous infection to use hotels and restaurants (until June 15).
Flying to Germany will still require a negative test. Without a negative certificate, they will simply not be allowed on board. In addition, air passengers will still have to register their visit – either online in advance or by filling out a questionnaire upon arrival.
France meanwhile is also liberalizing its entry requirements from Wednesday, June 9.
Fully vaccinated EU tourists will be allowed to enter without a PCR test.
Vaccinated travelers from the US and UK will be allowed to enter France with a PCR test – i.e. they will no longer need a “compelling reason” to enter the country.
Czech Railways (only in Czech) resumed the operation of some trains between the Czech Republic and Germany.
The Federal Police has created a form which you can use to ask them if you can enter Germany.
