The news comes as Germany has removed Thailand from its list of COVID-19 high-risk countries, effective from yesterday (Sunday), under which people arriving from Thailand can enter Germany without the need for quarantine, if they are fully inoculated with either BioNTech/Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca or Johnson&Johnson vaccines, according to the webpage of the Royal Thai Embassy in Berlin.
Despite the exemption from mandatory quarantine, the embassy said that Thai travellers to Germany must still carry a negative COVID-19 RT-PCR test result, produced within the 72 hours prior to arrival, or 48 hours in the case of a negative antigen test result.
