As of yesterday, February 27, Germany no longer classifies Serbia as a high-risk country for coronavirus infection. The decision to permit Serbian citizens to enter the country was made by border control officers on the basis of the applicable regulations and their discretionary powers.
More detailed legally binding information is available in English and German on the websites of the German Ministry of the Interior and the German Ministry of Health.
Entry from Serbia into Germany with or without a visa is only possible with full vaccination, i.e. with a combination of the Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, Johnson and Johnson or Novavax vaccines. The Paul Ehrlich website also lists exceptions to this rule that applies to people who have had the coronavirus infection.
Serbian citizens who have been vaccinated with a Sinofarm or Sputnik vaccine are not allowed to enter Germany.
The vaccination certificate must be submitted to German authorities in the English, German, French, Italian or Spanish language, in paper or digital form, and must contain the full name, the date of birth, the date of vaccination, the number of vaccines received, the name of the vaccine producer, the name of the disease due to which the vaccine was received and the name and address of the institution/person who carried out the vaccination.
Persons flying into Germany are required to present the vaccination certificate to the carrier prior to departure. Children under the age of 12 may enter Germany, even if they have not been vaccinated, accompanied by at least one fully vaccinated parent along with a negative lateral flow or PCR test. On the other hand, children under the age of 6 do not need a vaccination certificate or test to enter Germany.
