The federal government wants to extend the travel ban for travelers from areas where the mutated virus is particularly common until March 17. This stems from a bill from the Federal Ministry of Health reported by the Funke Media Group.
Currently, the ban on entry, which also applies to entry from the Czech Republic, Slovakia and the Austrian state of Tyrol, is valid until March 3. Airlines, bus and rail companies are not allowed to bring passengers to Germany from these regions. In principle, only Germans and foreigners living in Germany are allowed to enter. Among other things, there are exceptions for passengers working in systemically important industries.
