Dear Sir/Madam,

We are all faced with the great challenge of slowing down the spread of the coronavirus. Please adhere to hygiene directives such as washing your hands thoroughly, sneezing into tissues and disposing of them immediately or sneezing into the crook of your arm instead of into the palms of your hands. And please also follow the recommendations from scientists and researchers to reduce social contact to the necessary minimum. If you suspect you have been infected or feel ill, please stay at home and follow the information provided by your health authorities.
This will protect high-risk groups and relieve the burden on the healthcare system.

As of 1 March: People entering Germany will receive text messages with coronavirus notices

  • From 1 March 2021, people entering Germany will receive an SMS from the Federal Government as soon as their mobile phone connects to a German mobile network.
  • This will inform them about the entry and infection protection regulations applicable in the Federal Republic of Germany and point out applicable infection protection measures.

You can find information in English from the German Federal Ministry of Health and from the Robert Koch Institute here.

You can also call us or fill out a contact form.

Thank you very much for your cooperation.
