Travel restrictions due to the corona pandemic

The German Federal Government has introduced entry restrictions for residents of the United States to further prevent the spread of COVID-19. Entry from the United States to Germany with or without a visa can only take place if the intended entry is absolutely necessary.

The circumstances under which entry is considered to be absolutely necessary can be found here.

Decisions on entry are made on a case-by-case basis and are at discretion of the German Federal Police. The German Missions in the United States have no authority in making decisions on entry to Germany.
