The situation in Berlin:
The Berlin city government has worked together with stakeholders to develop a joint approach to provide solutions for responsible events and ensure our participants can visit Berlin safely.
Berlin’s hotels, museums, attractions, restaurants and even the clubs (for vaccinated and recovered) are open. Please find here an overview about everything, that is already open in Berlin.
Travelling to Berlin
Every delegate, exhibitor, staff, press etc must download an official certificate, approved by the EU.
Refer to the Re-open EU website for all updates on the latest Covid-19 measures in the state of Berlin and for traveling to Germany from an EU Member State or Schengen Associated country.
You can find the current SARS-CoV-2 infection protection regulation on the state of Berlin website (only available in German).
Entering Germany from an EU Member State or Schengen Associated country:
- All travelers entering Germany have to provide a negative test result (type of test is dependent on your country of origin), proof of EU approved full vaccination or proof of recovery, independent from where they arrive.
- Travelers entering Germany, who have been in a risk area at any time within the last 10 days before entry, are obliged to register at www.einreiseanmeldung.de. If in exceptional cases, it is not possible to complete a digital entry registration, travelers must fill out registration on paper.
- Travelers who spent time in area of variants of concern must, as a rule, already carry with them a negative test result upon entry, independent from proof of vaccination and recovery. Without such proof, travel is not possible.
The measures mentioned above are subject to changes. These may occur as a result of changes to applicable rules and regulations, changed requirements from our venue providers and suppliers, as well as at our own discretion. We therefore kindly request you to frequently check our overview of measures for updates. Furthermore, we entrust on your kind cooperation in meeting these measures prior and during the event, such as by meeting the rules of entry, frequently sanitizing your hands, wearing a mask and keeping your distance. Though we are confident in having taken appropriate measures to minimise the risk of infections during the event and where necessary will update these measures, we cannot guarantee no infections will take place during the event and accept no liability in any form should such infection(s) take place despite the measures we have taken.
