General testing obligation for all air travellers from abroad

From 30.03.2021 onwards, all persons entering the Federal Republic of Germany by air must present a negative test result to the carrier before departure (regardless of whether the country is a risk area or not). PCR and antigen tests are accepted. Self-tests are not accepted.
Tests can be done at approved centres abroad. The result must be available before departure in order to present it to the airline. The swab for the test must have been taken no more than 48 hours before entry. If it is not possible for travellers to obtain proof of the test, airlines should also be able to offer tests.
In future, carriage by airline will only be permitted with negative proof of testing. If the Corona test is positive, the traveller has to go into quarantine at his or her own responsibility according to local regulations - and usually has to bear the costs. Regulations on protection against infection depend on the regulations in the holiday country.
