Passengers from risk areas

Are you entering Bavaria from a risk area?

Then you are obliged to fill out a digital immigration registration before starting your journey. Depending on which country you are coming from, a COVID-19 test and quarantine are mandatory.

  • Before you travel to Germany, register digitally at einreiseanmeldung.de.
  • Save the confirmation document (PDF) or print it out. Take it with your travel documents so that you can show it to the airline or official controls.
  • During registration, contact details, data on the whereabouts of the last ten days as well as data on the means of transport and the address for the next ten days are recorded.
  • The obligation to register does not apply to stays of less than 24 hours, for example if you land in Memmingen and then travel on to a destination outside of Bavaria.

Risk area, high incidence area or virus variant area?

Depending on which country you are coming from, different regulations may apply. There are three categories of risk areas:

  • Risk areas as they have been designated by the Robert Koch Institute since the beginning of the pandemic

  • Virus variant areas with certain variants of the coronavirus

High incidence and virus variant areas are countries with a high risk of infection. The classification of the countries can change qiuckly. To find out whether your destination is classified as a risk area or to which category it belongs, get information directly from the Robert Koch Institute.
