Germany Extends the Border Controls Because of the Coronavirus to May 4

Germany extends the border controls introduced a month ago because of the coronavirus to May 4.


Border checks with Austria, France, Luxembourg, Denmark and Switzerland will be carried out for at least another twenty days, the German Ministry of the Interior said.

The borders with the Netherlands and Belgium remain without controls, although supervision has been tightened.

People who are not German and who do not live in the country must have a “good reason” to enter the country.

This concerns, for example, EU citizens who have to go home through the country or truck drivers who transport essential goods.

Besides, Germans who return from a stay abroad for more than a day are obliged to stay at home in self-isolation.
