In connection with mutated strains of the coronavirus in the Austrian Tyrol and in the border regions in the Czech Republic, Germany has announced strict controls. The customs control at the borders has been strengthened. The federal police are also tightening checks on air passengers arriving from Austria and the Czech Republic, the largest German airport in Frankfurt said.
A spokesman for the federal police explained that the officials checked whether those entering via Frankfurt from these two European countries were German citizens, EU citizens or third-country nationals with a valid residence permit in Germany. In addition, the presence of a negative test for coronavirus and pre-made digital registration for entry are checked.
