When travelling to Germany, please follow the quarantine regulations of the German Federal States. Detailed information is available on website of the Federal Ministry of Health.

Short-term visas, so-called Schengen visas, can only be issued in very exceptional cases where the applicant can present evidence of essential travel, which would qualify as an exception to the imposed travel restrictions (e.g. urgent medical treatment or travel for urgent family reasons of the “nuclear family”, i.e. spouses and minor children, as well as fiancés of German citizens under specific conditions).
