Information for holders of a valid German visa

31.03.2021 - Article

Holders of a valid German visa are allowed to enter Germany only if the travel purpose meets the current exemptions from the travel ban or they are fully vaccinated (please see “What rules apply for fully vaccinated people?”).


Please note that the Visa Section is not authorized to check or grant exemptions or issue travel confirmations.
The decision upon entry is at the sole discretion of the respective border authority.

Further details - also in English - on the current exemptions from the travel ban and the necessary documentation can be found on the website of the Federal Ministry of the Interior, Building and Community.

The German Federal Police also handles individual inquiries if the information provided online is not sufficient.
