Unvaccinated passengers returning to Germany from these countries will be subject to a minimum 5-day quarantine.
Germany’s Robert Koch Institute also included Kenya, Montenegro, Vietnam, French Guiana and French Polynesia to high risk areas with yesterday’s update. Some regions of Portugal were excluded from the list.
