Coronavirus / COVID19

In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, Germany has decided to classify Luxembourg as a 'high-risk area' as of Sunday 9 January 2022 at 00.01.

Consequently, any traveller over 6 years old who enters Germany after having stayed in Luxembourg during the previous 10 days, must, whatever their means of transport, be able to present a valid health document, namely:

  • a certificate with a complete vaccination schedule, completed more than 14 days ago; or
  • proof of recovery (positive PCR test result older than 28 days and less than 6 months); or
  • a negative test certificate (PCR/antigen test less than 48 hours old).

Non-vaccinated persons and persons who have not recovered and who are entering Germany for less than 24 hours in the context of border traffic (cross-border workers and other types of stay of less than 24 hours) must be in possession of a negative test certificate which only needs to be renewed twice a week.

A Digital Registration on Entry ('Einreiseanmeldung') must be completed before entering Germany, with the exception of:

  • cross-border workers;
  • persons who travel within Germany for less than 24 hours;
  • persons in transit.

Persons not fully vaccinated or have not recovered are subject to a quarantine obligation which can be terminated at the earliest after 5 days following the presentation of a negative test. Travel to Germany for less than 24 hours is exempt from this quarantine obligation.

Detailed information on travel to Germany can be found on the website of the German Federal Ministry of Health.
