Travel Restrictions

U.S. Travelers in Europe:

If you are planning to visit or travel through European countries, we urge you to check the websites of the relevant U.S. embassies or consulates for information on restrictions, foreign quarantine policies, and urgent health information provided by relevant authorities.  

Some European countries currently prohibit entry by tourists and other non-essential travelers. We recommend that you visit the websites of those countries' embassies in the United States for additional information including entry/exit restrictions and permissible categories of travel.

For information on the March 11, 2020 Presidential Proclamation on travel to the United States from and transiting through Europe, see Frequently Asked Questions here.

Entering Germany:

Many COVID-19 restrictions in Germany have been lifted for those wishing to enter the country.

For detailed and up to date information on entry into Germany, check the Federal Foreign Office's 

COVID-19: entry and quarantine regulations in Germany

Entering the U.S.:

As of 12 June 2022, the CDC no longer requires air passengers traveling to the United

States to show a negative COVID-19 viral test or documentation of recovery

from COVID-19 before boarding, regardless of citizenship or vaccination

status.  The CDC's order requiring proof of vaccination for non-citizen

nonimmigrants to travel to the United States is still in effect.


We would still recommend that travelers check U.S. entry requirements and

check for any travel-ready document requirements for their specific airline

(to include uploading vaccination cards).
