New Entry Regulations for fully vaccinated people for any travel purpose:

05.07.2021 - Article


What rules apply for fully vaccinated people?

For fully vaccinated people, entry from third countries will generally be permitted again starting 25 June 2021. The traveller 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 .

The EU Digital COVID Certificate or comparable proof of vaccination in German, English, French, Italian or Spanish must be presented upon entry.

People who have been vaccinated in accordance with these requirements may enter Germany for any travel purpose.

Please note: This does not apply to entry from countries for which a condition of reciprocity applies (currently: China) or from countries categorised as areas of virus variants of concern; restrictions on entry or transport from areas of virus variants of concern also apply to fully vaccinated people.

Please note that the following rules apply for minors:

  • Minors (between 0-5) do neither need a vaccination certificate/ proof nor a PCR test.
  • Minors (between 6-11) traveling with a fully vaccinated parent will need a negative PCR test report/ certificate.
  • The rules for adults apply for Minors aged 12 years and above too (they have to be fully vaccinated with one of the approved and above mentioned vaccines).

Therefore if you do not require a visa or still holding a valid Schengen visa, please present your vaccination card (print version/soft copy) or within the Al-Hosn - or the DHA app at the airline counter at the Airport.

From 23rd of June 2021 our visa application centers –VFS- all over the UAE will open for visa-application process.

I M P O R T A N T  N O T E:

All other travel restrictions (beside the above mentioned regulation for fully vaccinated people ) - based on a recommendation of the Council of the European Union - for entering Germany from countries that do not belong to the European Union are still in place.
