In the course of the Corona crisis, the entire Schengen zone as well as the individual European countries imposed entry restrictions. The external border of the Schengen area has been closed, and most European countries have more or less rigorously closed their borders to “unnecessary” traffic.

In many countries travellers have to go into two-week quarantine. Some countries, especially in Eastern Europe, generally do not allow citizens who do not have a permanent residence permit in the country concerned to enter the country.

Below is a selection of the entry requirements in some European countries:

Germany: In our neighbouring country, entry “without good reason” is not allowed. Whether there is a “good reason” is decided at the border by the officers of the Federal Police. Checks are carried out at all borders. Rrail and air traffic is still maintained.

France : Entry into France is possible for valid reasons, and those entering must carry a form stating their purpose of entry. As there are also restrictions on movement within the country, an additional form confirming the purpose of travel must be carried for travel through France.

Great Britain : Great Britain did not introduce border closures or quarantine regulations for travellers. However, the government is currently considering the introduction of a 14-day quarantine, which is already common practice in almost all other European countries.

Italy: Entry into Italy, which is one of the countries most severely affected by the pandemic, is only possible for “good reason”. After entry, a 14-day home quarantine is mandatory. Air and shipping traffic has been restricted and international rail traffic has been stopped.

Romania: As the country of origin of numerous 24-hour nurses who regularly commute to Austria, Romania has recently been a frequent topic in the domestic media. Visitors from Austria that are considered to be in the “red zone” have to spend 14 days in a quarantine facility; visitors from other countries may do the quarantine at home.

Russia: The country has generally suspended the entry of foreigners; this measure was extended again indefinitely at the beginning of May. Land borders have also been closed and international air traffic has virtually ceased. Persons arriving in Russia must be placed in home quarantine for 14 days.

Switzerland: Only Swiss and Liechtenstein citizens, persons resident in Switzerland and cross-border commuters are allowed to enter the country. Exceptions are only permitted in cases of “extreme necessity” (such as a death in the family).

Serbia: There is a general ban on entry into Serbia, with the exception of goods traffic. This also applies to its own citizens. Strict curfews in the evening and night hours are also in force.

Hungary: Only Hungarian citizens and EEA citizens with a Hungarian residence permit are permitted to enter the country. A general 14-day quarantine obligation applies to all persons entering the country; exceptions apply to commuters and transit traffic.
