There are many rules for entering Germany - but in numerous cases the regulations are disregarded, as figures from the Federal Police show.

The big travel boom for Mallorca has ensured that the entry rules for Germany have been tightened even further.

Now all air travelers, regardless of which country they come from, have to present a negative corona test - even before they leave.

Stricter entry rules have been in

effect

since the beginning of the

differentiation between risk areas, high incidence areas and virus variant areas

.

However, figures from the Federal Police show that the Corona Protection Ordinance has been violated thousands of times.

Without a corona test: Hundreds of people travel to Germany from high-risk areas

Anyone entering Germany from a high incidence area - i.e. an area with a corona incidence of over 200 - and a virus variant area must

present a negative corona test regardless of the means of transport

.

Nevertheless, several hundred people from high-risk countries have been brought to the Federal Republic by airlines - even though they

could not provide any evidence of a non-existent corona disease

.

In addition, according to a report by

tagesschau.de

, the federal police

repeatedly find fake tests on travelers.

"Fake test evidence is anything but a trivial offense and must be resolutely prosecuted by the law enforcement authorities," said FDP domestic politician Benjamin Strasser.

From January 24th to March 29th alone, the federal police were able to determine a total of

44,891 deficiencies in the testing and verification requirements

.

Although stricter entry controls have been in place at airports since the end of January and airlines have been banned from transporting travelers from virus variant or high-risk areas, 3,753 of the violations took place at airports.

Between the end of January and the end of February, 668 people traveled by plane from high-incidence areas without a test, while 237 people came from virus variant areas without a test.

However, the entry rules require a negative corona test that is not older than 48 hours.

Corona Protection Ordinance: Airlines from Germany also violate test controls

The Federal Police reimbursed in any case, a

misdemeanor display

the competent local airport health authorities, said President Dieter Romann according

at the end of February at the Home Affairs Committee of the Bundestag: "They are obviously overloaded, operate the penalty proceedings either impossible or delayed, with the result that For a large commercial enterprise or several it is more economical to transport the people without tests. ”The airlines that have violated the test controls come from the USA, Great Britain, Portugal, the Arabian Peninsula, but also from Germany.

In addition to the non-existent corona tests, the officers of the federal police also very often

find deficits in the digital entry

registration.

In 110,280 cases, these were either not carried out at all or were not filled in completely or incorrectly.

The entry registration must be presented by anyone who has been in a risk, high risk or virus variant area within the last ten days prior to entry.
