Germany adds more places to its high-risk regions list

Germany's high-risk regions list updated

Germany’s RKI has identified some new high-risk regions in the context of COVID-19 infection, which has been added to the country’s list of high-risk areas. These new additions to the list are part of Germany’s efforts to make Germany migration safe and pandemic-free. These new regions include:

  • All of Namibia
  • All of Estonia
  • The Norwegian province of Innlandet
  • Ireland’s South-East region

Now, travelers coming to Germany from these regions, as when on a Germany visit visa, will have to go through the mandatory quarantine procedure upon arrival. If these travelers have stayed in a high-risk area within the last 10 days of their arrival in Germany, they will have to follow the quarantine rules prescribed by the respective German province.

If the traveler has tested negative for COVID-19 after 5 days of such quarantine isolation, they can cut short their quarantine period. Every traveler is under the obligation to register digitally through the DEA before arriving in Germany.

The list of high-risk countries is updated weekly by RKI. This will be based on the analysis done jointly and decisions made by the Federal Ministry of Health, the Federal Ministry of the Interior, Building and Home Affairs, and the Foreign Office.
