Entry from all over Europe is possible for fair participants
As of 7 July 2021, there are no longer any virus variant areas within Europe. The Robert Koch Institute has downgraded the previous virus variant areas United Kingdom, Portugal and Russia to high incidence areas. This means that trade fair participants from all over Europe can travel to trade fairs in Germany. Exhibitors and visitors travelling from risk and high incidence areas are exempt from the general quarantine obligation: they do not have to be quarantined if they stay for a maximum of five days, as they are business travellers with an urgent need to travel. If travelling from a risk area, quarantine is not required if a negative test certificate is submitted beforehand via Germany´s entry portal at
In addition, the quarantine obligation is not applicable for vaccinated and recovered persons when entering the country from risk and high incidence areas . However, not all vaccines used abroad are accepted. A list of vaccines and necessary number of vaccine doses leading to a vaccinated status is available here
India is also no longer a virus variant area. Brazil, South Africa and Uruguay, for example, are still virus variant areas from which de facto entry is currently not possible.
Due to the dynamic infection situation and thus also the legal situation, trade fair participants should always inform themselves about the current regulations before starting their journey. We update our website on entry requirements for trade fair participants from abroad on a regular basis.
