Popular European holiday destination relaxes Covid rules for Brits

GERMANY is the latest country to announce it has relaxed its Covid restrictions.

The European holiday destination is easing its internal Covid rules, making it easier for residents and tourists to access services.

Previously, anyone who tried to enter a bar, restaurant, café, museum, shopping centre or cinema needed to show either proof of vaccination, proof of recovery, or a negative Covid test.

But, according to local media, that rule has been lifted, so people can freely enter venues and access services without needing to do any Covid-related admin.

Covid certificates are still required in healthcare facilities.

This will come as a boost to Brits who plan on visiting Germany over the Easter holidays.

However, Germany has not changed its strict Covid entry requirements which say only vaccinated people can enter for tourism purposes.

Unvaccinated Brits aged 12 and over may only enter Germany if they are a relative of a German citizen or have an urgent need to travel.

Vaccinated Brits can enter by showing proof of vaccination.

Children under five are exempt from any Covid rules, and children aged between six and 11 may enter if they are accompanied by a fully vaccinated parent.
