Corona Update, December 20th 2021: Great Britain will be a virus variant again!

FrFrom today on (20.12.2021), due to the spread of the South African Corona variant Omikron, which is considered particularly contagious, Great Britain has been classified by the federal government as the first European country as a virus variant area. Previously, only countries such as South Africa, Namibia and Zimbabwe were affected. It is expected to apply until 3 January 2022, but an extension is quite possible.

The classification applies to the whole of Great Britain, including the Isle of Man and all Channel Islands and British overseas territories. Entry from these areas is subjected to a ban on travel by train, bus, ship and air from the UK. Only German citizens or persons living in Germany will be allowed to enter Germany from Great Britain. A two-week quarantine obligation applies to those entering the country, which cannot be shortened by negative corona tests, proven vaccination protection or recovery. Detailed information is available here:

It is to be expected that it could also affect other countries shortly. Travel plans for the next few months should be reviewed and possibly adjusted.

PROGEDO is happy to support you during the pandemic. For example, we offer special quarantine packages for people entering the country. Find out more her:
