The Ordinance on Coronavirus Entry Regulations of 12 May 2021 combines the regulations of the original Ordinance on Coronavirus Entry Regulations; the Coronavirus Protection Ordinance and the Model Quarantine Regulations. It thus regulates the registration; quarantine; and testing requirements as well as the transport ban from areas of virus variant concern for Germany as a whole. Proof of vaccination or of recovery from Covid-19 can replace a negative test certificate and exempt you from quarantine on entry. In the Ordinance on Coronavirus Entry Regulations use has now been made of this possibility to regulate the entry quarantine provisions uniformly at the federal level. The obligation to quarantine will initially be in force until 28 July 2021.; 01/08/2021: Countries are grouped in 'high risk' and 'virus variant'. Travelers without proof of vaccination or recovery should be quarantined for 10 days; which can be shortened to 5 days with the provision of a negative test.; 11/06/2022: Travelers arriving in Germany are no longer obligated to provide proof that they have been vaccinated; recovered; or tested.

Risk areas are defined as "virus variant", "high incidence", or "risk" area. The website of the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) shows which country falls into which category. Travellers who have stayed in a risk area, high incidence area or area of variant of concern in the last 10 days must self-isolate for 10 days (14 days in case of area of variant of concern). For arrivals from high incidence areas, the quarantine period may be ended with a negative test carried out no earlier than 5 days after entry. For arrivals from areas of variant of concern, a reduction of the quarantine period is not possible.
