Do I need any additional documentation to travel to Germany?

Furthermore, if you are travelling to Germany from the UK then you must register online in advance of travelling. This registration replaces the paper landing cards previously required.

The price of a Covid-19 test is £149 if you are travelling to Germany. This covers the PCR test and a fit to fly certificate.

Are Medicspot Covid tests approved by Germany?

What documentation will I get following my Covid test in order to meet Germany’s travel requirements?

If your Covid-19 test is negative, Medicspot will provide you with your negative test result as well as a fit to fly certificate. These will be provided within the 48 hour window.

Will I still need to quarantine on arrival in Germany if I have tested negative for Covid-19?

Yes. As the German government has designated the UK as a risk area, all travellers are required to travel immediately to their accommodation upon arrival and quarantine there for 10 days. It is possible to leave quarantine after 5 days with a negative test result.
