    What are the conditions of entry into Germany for people who have survived COVID? I will be in transit through Germany. I fly from Estonia to Croatia on 17. April 2021. (Saturday)
    There is no clear information available on entering Germany anywhere except that I have to have a negative PCR test.
    Other countries have announced the possibility of entry with a doctor’s certificate or a positive test that was a minimum of 11 days.

    Can you explain to me if I can travel if I have a doctor’s certificate?

    Kind regards,

    Igor Bjelicic

    For travel from Phnom Penh to Hamburg on 06.20.2021 is the PCR Test Result within 72 hrs before departure accepted by the SIG Ground staff or is there a change? The German Embassy in Phnom Penh informed me no more 48 hrs now 72 is permitted. Please confirm this is accepted by your ground staff here in PP.

    I am travelling to Finalnd from Spain stopping in Germany (Frankfurt). Is the anti-gen -test valid or do I need PCR test? I am just in an airport, not travelling in Germany.

    I have been trying to get in contact with Swedish Lufthansa for 14 days, noone ever answers the phone it is ridiculous. What is the point of it? I live in Sweden so I guess I should call Lufthansa customer service in Sweden, but it is a joke. Reading about covid tests on Lufthansa page is unclear. In one sentence it says that those who are vaccinated don’t need to have a covid test, and in another one it says that they still do. I am just going to be in transfer in Frankfurt (I am travelling from Umeå, Sweden to Zagreb, Croatia), do I need to take a covid test or not? Even if I am vaccinated. Please, a simple yes or no will do.
