Germany is set to allow travelers from non-European Union countries who are fully vaccinated against Covid-19 to enter the country from June 25 which covers Turkish citizens who have received both shots of BioNTech jabs.
The required vaccines, meanwhile, will be those approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA), namely the BioNTech, Moderna, AstraZeneca and Johnson and Johnson vaccines.
“Trips and tourism thus become possible again for vaccinated people,” the Interior Ministry said Thursday, adding that individuals must have received the final required dose of their vaccine 14 days before travel.
However, the statement added that this will not cover travelers from countries affected by new variants. Entry from virus-variant areas continues to be excluded, it said.
Germany announced last week that it will lift the general travel warning from July 1 to regions that it had declared “risky” and where the number of cases seen in 100,000 people per week is below 200.— Daily Sabah
