Germany permits tourists fully vaccinated against Covid-19 to enter the country. The vaccines must be approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA). This was reported by the press service of the German Embassy in Ukraine.
The traveler must have received the last vaccination dose that is necessary for full vaccination (in the case of a person who has recovered from coronavirus only one dose is necessary) at least 14 days before the date of travel, and the vaccine the person has received must be among those listed on the website of the Paul Ehrlich Institute.
“From June 25, 2021, entry from Ukraine to Germany for persons fully vaccinated against SARS-CoV-2 with vaccines approved by the European Medicines Agency will be possible again. Fully vaccinated persons will be able to re-enter Germany for visiting friends, acquaintances and relatives, as well as for tourist purposes. Visa-free entry for citizens of Ukraine with biometric passports will be possible again,” the statement reads.
Full vaccination must be completed no later than 14 days before the date of travel. The entry will be allowed to those who have been vaccinated with one of the vaccines recognized by EMA: BioNTech / Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson.
It is noted that a must-have document is a digital Covid-certificate of the European standard or an analogue of the vaccination confirmation in digital or paper form, issued in German, English, French, Italian or Spanish.
The EU Digital COVID Certificate or comparable proof of vaccination in German, English, French, Italian or Spanish must be presented upon entry. This certificate must include the following information:
- The personal data of the vaccinated person (at least first and last name and date of birth)
- The date/s of vaccination and number of vaccination doses
- The name of the vaccine
- The name of the disease against which the person was vaccinated
- The name and address of the person or institution responsible for vaccinating the person
- Confirmation in written or electronic form with the qualified electronic signature or qualified electronic seal of the person who carried out the vaccination; if for administrative reasons this is not possible, a suitable format such as a stamp or state symbols should be used to clearly identify the responsible person or institution.
In addition, children under the age of 12 who have not yet been vaccinated against coronavirus may enter Germany (if they have test certificate) accompanied by one or both fully vaccinated parents. Children under the age of six do not need confirmation of testing.
As it was reported on June 23, Hungary lifted some of the quarantine restrictions imposed during the coronavirus pandemic in September last year. Entry across the land border is now open to citizens from neighboring countries, except for Ukraine. It is still not possible to travel by plane to Hungary.
