Germany has removed India and 13 other countries from its list of high-risk regions now that the COVID-19 crisis appears to be under control. Bangladesh, Brazil, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Cyprus, Ireland, Portugal - the Algarve region, Nepal, South Africa, Malawi, Lesotho, and Eswatini are among the other countries. 

According to reports, the countries were chosen based on the COVID-19 prevalence in their respective areas. The Robert Koch Institute (RKI), a German disease prevention and control organisation, compiled the report.

“Travellers who have previously been in a high-risk location must carry a test, vaccination, or recovery certificate with them and, if a carrier is utilised, give the documentation for the purpose of the transportation,” according to the RKI. 

What impact does this have on India? 

Indian travellers will no longer be required to quarantine upon arrival; previously, this was required for ten days. All that is required of travellers is confirmation of recovery, either in the form of a vaccination certificate or a PCR negative test certificate.

Countries that have been added to the high-risk category:

Germany has compiled a new list of nations in the high-risk zone, which will take effect on September 19. Visitors from Armenia, Moldova, Barbados, Guyana, Belize, Antigua and Barbuda, and Venezuela will face entrance restrictions under the revised list.
