Germany allows entry into the country from June 25 for persons fully vaccinated against coronavirus (COVID-19) with vaccines approved by the European Medicines Agency.
“Starting from June 25, 2021, entry from Ukraine to Germany for people fully vaccinated against SARS-CoV-2 with vaccines approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) will be possible again. Fully vaccinated persons will be able to re-enter Germany for the purpose of visiting friends, acquaintances and relatives, as well as for tourism purposes. Visa-free travel for Ukrainian citizens with biometric passports will be possible again,” the German Embassy in Ukraine said in a statement. It is noted that those persons who have received vaccinations with one of the vaccines indicated on the Paul-Ehrlich-Institute website will have the right to enter Germany, if at least 14 days have passed since the day of inoculation with the last required dose or vaccine that requires one dose.
“Currently, this only applies to vaccines recognized by the European Medicines Agency. The list of vaccines is also planned to be expanded and supplemented with other vaccines with similar protective standards as soon as the necessary tests are completed,” the embassy said.
It is noted that it is necessary to provide a European digital COVID certificate or an analogue of vaccination confirmation in digital or paper form, issued in German, English, French, Italian or Spanish.
“For people who have recovered from the disease, the vaccine can consist of only one dose of the vaccine. In order to confirm the full vaccination, people who have recovered must also be proved that they were sick with the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus before vaccination. Confirmation of the fact of the disease must be a positive result of PCR test,” the embassy said.
In addition, persons under the age of 12 and who have not yet received COVID-19 vaccine may, if they have documented proof of the test (PCR or antigen test), enter Germany accompanied by one or both fully vaccinated parents. Persons who have not yet turned six years old do not need confirmation of testing.
