Germany will lift its travel warning, in force for more than a year, on July 1 for most countries except those which still record a high level of Covid-19 infections or a high incidence of variants, a announced this Friday the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. “We can lift the general warning to travelers for risk areas whose incidence (of the virus, note) over seven days is less than 200. This measure will apply from July 1 and throughout the world”, announced a statement from the head of diplomacy Heiko Maas.
This symbolic measure will facilitate the resumption of travel and tourist activity for the summer season. “In many places the infection numbers are dropping and more and more citizens are being vaccinated. After long months of confinement, we can rejoice in regaining a certain normality, and this also applies to travel, ”added the Minister while continuing to call for caution and respect for sanitary rules.
The warning, accompanied by restrictions, however remains in place for countries with still high levels of infections or a high incidence of variants, such as the United Kingdom or India. Lifting this warning does not exempt from the obligation to present a negative test for Covid-19, a vaccination certificate or any other obligation in force for travel from Germany.
