An announcement has arrived from the Federal German Ministry of Foreign Affairs that Germany will lift a travel warning for non-essential trips to 21 European nations. The UK is one of them.
The border restriction was imposed in March 2020, as a measure against COVID-19 pandemic.
On June 3, 2020, Germany’s Foreign Minister, Heiko Maas took this decision collaborating with other German authorities. As per his decision, the travel warning for Schengen-associated states, the United Kingdom, and for the member states of the European Union, should be lifted from June 15. This will be replaced by individual travel advice.
The warning about non-essential tours abroad remains in effect until further notice. This identifies worldwide entry restrictions, restrictions in international air and travel traffic, quarantine measures, and restrictions in public life.
The Ministry also stated that any change in the entry and quarantine rules can be sometimes made without advance notice.
Entry into Germany still needs an essential reason, which will be a procedure that will be maintained in principle. Hence Germany migration will still be allowed under a strict observational procedure. Nevertheless, there will be additional travel facilities for family or personal reasons.
Germany has abolished border controls with Luxembourg on May 16, 2020. But the border control with Austria, France, and Switzerland will be maintained till June 15, 2020. The same will be applied to airside borders with Spain and Italy. So, the use of a German visit visa for travelers from these countries will be possible only from mid-June.
Germany will continue its border controls with Denmark for now.
