Anyone wishing to enter Germany must meet specific health screening requirements that vary depending on the risk level attributed to the country from which they are traveling. A pre-departure testing requirement applies to all inbound passengers, whether they are onboard direct flight from risk areas or via transfers, and to all carriers, not just direct flights. Non-compliance with health screening requirements is a regulatory offense and can result in fines for both passengers and airlines. Here are the details.

Health Screening

Passengers entering from a risk area:

  • Must carry proof of a negative antigen or PCR test result performed no more than 48 hours before entry
  • Complete the Digital Registration on Entry (DEA) form (www.einreiseanmeldung.de) – Carriers must check this is done before boarding on all flights from risk areas
  • Submit DEA to Federal Police at passport control (for non-Schengen passengers)
  • Crew are exempt from having to submit DEA
  • Transfer passengers (via Germany) don’t have to complete the DEA
