Neighbouring countries:
Germany vlajka-DE_-_104-68.jpg
Germany reintroduced internal border controls on 16 March 2020, which are now being gradually relaxed. In the vicinity of the German-Czech border (30 km from the state borders), police checks continue to be performed. Entry is allowed only in exceptional cases: legal residents, cross-border workers, transport of goods, family reasons, medical treatment, etc. Cross-border workers must submit a certificate when entering the country. Different practices may apply to quarantine measures (in this case, it is necessary to verify the information on the websites of the individual federal states).
