Brits banned from Germany as UK made variant area of concern

Brits are not allowed to enter Germany after the Public Health Institute of the country identified Great Britain as a problem area for virus variants.

From midnight on Sunday, May 23rd, people traveling to Germany from Great Britain and Northern Ireland are only allowed to enter the country if they are German citizens or residents.

Spouses and children under the age of 18, German citizens or residents, can also participate as long as the household travels together.

People with an urgent humanitarian cause, such as an immediate family bereavement, can also enter. Anyone entering the country from the UK must be quarantined for two weeks upon arrival, even if they test negative for the coronavirus.

People who only switch from one flight to another are still allowed, but must be in the transit area of ​​the airport.

The move comes after Spain lifted travel restrictions on UK visitors. The country’s Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said Spain would be “delighted, extremely pleased” to welcome British tourists again.

Spain will lift its restrictions on travelers from the UK from Monday.

Germany and Spain are both on the government’s amber list, which means travelers must be quarantined at home for 10 days, taking one test before departure and two tests after arrival.
