Current entry regulations with regard to Covid-19

  1. If you plan to travel to Germany from a high risk or virus variant area, you must register at https://www.einreiseanmeldung.de/ one day before your journey at the latest.
  2. In addition, you will have to present a vaccination certificate, proof of recovery, proof of a negative PCR test (no older than 72 h) or of a negative antigen test (no older than 48 h). If you travel from a virus variant area, you need proof of a negative PCR test (no older than 72 h) or of a negative antigen test (no older than 48 h) – the vaccination certificate or proof of recovery does not suffice in this case.
  3. If you travel from a high-risk area, you are obligated to self-isolate for 10 days, which can be shortened by presenting appropriate proof from day 1 or by testing negative for Covid-19 after 5 days. If you travel from a virus variant, you must self-isolate for 14 days without exceptions.

Before you travel, please contact the International Office (international.office@fh-bielefeld.de) and inform us about your plans.
