Germany drops negative COVID-19 test for UK travelers

From January 4, Germany will drop its demand for travellers from Britain to quarantine and provide a negative COVID-19 test – requirements that were imposed earlier in December during a surge of the Omicron coronavirus variant.

In a tweet, the German embassy in London said COVID-19 restriction requirements would be dropped from midnight CET on January 4.

Grant Shapps, Britain’s transport minister responded in a tweet saying the news was a “welcome development”.

Germany had classified the United Kingdom as an area of variants of concern.

Britain is experiencing an Omicron wave, with a record 183,037 daily cases.

Germany also saw a steep increase in infection levels from October through November, although infection levels tapered off in December.
