Currently, Germany travel restrictions include travel to Cologne. Germany has restricted the entry of travelers who are arriving from outside the European Economic Area, except for nationals of Germany, residents with a residence permit, and D-Visa holders, and certain exceptions (detailed below). As of June 25, travelers arriving from Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czechia, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland or the United Kingdom may enter Germany. Germany has also lifted restrictions on entry for travelers coming from the following countries: Australia, Canada, Georgia, New Zealand, Thailand and Uruguay. Travelers must have spent at least 2 weeks in the above-listed countries prior to their flight to Germany. Restrictions will also be lifted for entry from South Korea, China and Japan if this can be agreed on a reciprocal basis. The list will be reviewed every two weeks. Entry from any third country is possible for travelers who can demonstrate an important reason for their travel. The list of important reasons covers German and EU citizens and any third-country nationals with a right of residency in Germany. It also includes healthcare and social care personnel and health researchers, skilled workers whose economic activity is necessary and cannot be postponed or performed from abroad, freight and transport staff, seasonal workers, students who cannot continue their studies from abroad, travelers making visits for urgent family reasons, diplomats and staff at international organisations, and persons transiting Germany. Travelers entering Germany after staying in a designated risk area abroad during the previous 14 days must undergo mandatory testing for Covid-19. The German government regularly updates its list of designated risk areas. See the "English archive" at the bottom of the Robert Koch Institute page for the latest updated list. Travelers who need to be tested have the choice to either present a valid test taken within 48 hours prior to arrival, take a test on arrival at the airport, or take a test after returning to their place of residence in Germany, by reporting to the local health office. The test is free of charge if taken within 72 hours of arrival. Travelers with a negative test may be exempted from the 14-day self-isolation requirement, but some German states require a second negative test before granting an exemption from quarantine. Quarantine requirements in Germany differ depending on the German state. All travelers arriving from high-risk areas (over 50 cases per 100,000 inhabitants) are required to stay in quarantine for 14 days on arrival in Germany. More information can be found here. If you are planning to travel to Cologne at this time, it is recommended that you stay up to date on current restrictions and follow proper safety measures while in public.
