Germany now requires proof of COVID-19 vaccination for hotel and dining in. Will Singapore status be accepted?

Recommended Posts

SINGAPORE: Due to the rising numbers of COVID-19 cases, Germany has recently introduced rules, that require people who want to eat in a restaurant, stay in a hotel or do other indoor activities to show proof that they are fully vaccinated or have recovered from the virus.




Those who have not been vaccinated need a negative COVID-19 test, Deutsche Welle reported on its website.

The so-called 3G rule - which stands for vaccinated, recovered, tested - came into force nationwide this week on Monday (Aug 23).


It has been introduced as Germany experiences a fourth wave of infections. 


It also comes ahead of the launch next month of a vaccinated travel lane (VTL) between Singapore and Germany, which will allow people returning from the European country to avoid serving a period of quarantine if they have spent the previous 21 days in Germany and/or Singapore.


People will need to return to Singapore on designated flights and undertake a COVID-19 test before boarding the aircraft. They will also need to be tested three times after arriving back in Singapore.


Digital Proof


All travelers to Germany can use their digital or paper certificate from Singapore to furnish proof of their vaccination status, a spokesperson from the German embassy in Singapore told local media.


A photograph of the certificate is not acceptable, the spokesperson said, and the vaccine used must be one of those listed on the website of the Paul-Ehrlich Institute, which is an agency of Germany's health ministry.
