Germany drops ‘3G’ entry protocols, making travel even more accessible for summer 2022

TORONTO — Just in time for summer travel season, the German government has dropped its ‘3G’ rule, which stated that tourists had to either show proof of vaccination, recovery from COVID-19 or provide a negative test when entering Germany.

With the suspension of the travel restrictions, Germany is now much more accessible, and the GNTO says the destination is looking forward to welcoming visitors this summer, including Canadians.

Canadian travellers no longer need to provide proof of vaccination, recovery or a negative test.

From Canada, visitors can now enter Germany without carrying any kind of proof of their COVID status.

The GNTO says this update to the protocols is so far set to stay in place until Aug. 31, 2022.

Germany had also dropped its mask mandates earlier this year. The only federal rule still remaining in place requires people to wear masks on public transportation.

Earlier this spring the GNTO announced the relaunch of its German.Local.Culture. campaign, highlighting Germany’s many treasures, from its charming old towns and vibrant urban cities, to its thriving wine and beer scene, unique architecture and lush green spaces.
