According to their information, the short-term changed entry regulation should be decided in the cabinet this Friday. This can be done by so-called circular resolution, without the cabinet meeting. The ordinance is expected to come into effect at 12:00 a.m. Monday, she said.

Because of the rapidly increasing corona numbers in the People’s Republic, travelers from China should then have to present at least one negative antigen rapid test that is no more than 48 hours old before departing for Germany. According to the information, this should be controlled by the airlines. In addition, the authorities are planning spot checks on landing. Like other countries, Germany also wants to examine the wastewater from aircraft from China for possible new coronavirus variants.
