Through travel we connect people and places, and connections are more important now than ever. These days we fly to 3 destinations in Germany: Berlin, Frankfurt and Munich.
Here you'll find the latest information about travels to Germany as well as the latest entry requirements, such as registrations forms for arriving passengers to fill in, quarantine rules, and other practical information.
Note: if you plan to fly from Germany to Iceland, read important information on our Visiting Iceland page.
As countries open up again, travel restrictions are fast-changing. Travelers should look into the current rules that apply to them for the destination they wish to visit (for example, requirements for a COVID test or possible quarantine, what documentation is required), and also for rules that apply to their return trip (for example, the need to quarantine after returning home).
Registration form for passengers from risk areas
Passengers entering Germany from a risk area, or those who have been to a risk area in the last 14 days are required to fill out a special form — Passenger Locator Card. As of August 19, 2020, Iceland is considered a risk area. We recommend to download the following Passenger Locator Card and print it out.
For answers, refer to the online information provided by the Federal Ministry of the Interior:
"According to the Federal Government’s model ordinance, only people entering the Federal Republic of Germany from a risk area are required to stay in quarantine for 14 days."
The names of countries considered risk areas are published on the website of the Robert Koch Institute. Due to the fast-changing nature of travel restrictions, we recommend confirming Iceland's status on this list before traveling.
More information (specifications regarding testing, quarantine, potential fines, etc.) on requirements for travelers from risk areas is available on the German Federal Ministry of Health website.
