People from numerous European countries no longer have to be in domestic quarantine for two weeks when entering Berlin.
This was decided by the Senate on 19 May 2020, thus implementing a recommendation of the federal government like other states. According to Interior Senator Andreas Geisel (SPD), the new regulation applies to travellers from all EU countries as well as Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Switzerland and Great Britain.
Travel restrictions within the EU to be eased
The quarantine regulations have been in force since the beginning of April to slow down the spread of the corona pandemic. Exceptions were made, for example, for diplomats or foreigners without corona symptoms who are in Berlin for professional reasons. This applied to construction workers or nursing staff, for example. During the corona crisis, travel restrictions still apply within the EU. However, they are to be relaxed in the coming weeks, so that foreign tourists can come to Berlin again, for example.
