Instructions for entering Germany
Based on the current measures related to entry into the FR of Germany from risk areas, any person entering Germany who stayed in the risk area (including Montenegro) for 14 days before entering is obliged to go directly to his/hers place of residence upon entering German territory; self-isolates in the place of residence until receiving the results of (negative) test on COVID-19, i.e. after submitting a negative test for corona virus to local health authorities, contact the competent health office in the place of residence by e-mail or phone. We note that passengers are required to fill out two so-called passenger locator cards (PLCs). One card remains with the passenger and the other is forwarded to the local health authorities, to monitor compliance with self-isolation measures.
When entering the FR of Germany from the risk area, testing for COVID-19 is mandatory. If a person coming from a risk area can prove that they are not infected with COVID-19 (negative test not older than 48 hours issued by a recognized biological-molecular laboratory), quarantine is not mandatory in most federal provinces. Robert Koch Institut (RKI) have included Montenegro on the positive list of countries whose molecular-biological tests (PSR) on Corona Virus (SARS-CoV-2) are considered valid. However, certain provinces require an additional test after a few days. Alternatively, and which still applies to passengers from Montenegro, testing is necessary and possible to perform upon entry into FR Germany at border crossings, including airports, or at the place of residence.
The test is, for now, free for travelers from high-risk areas until 72 hours after entering German territory. If the testing is not done within the specified period, the testing must be done within 14 days of entry, but the payment of the test is at the expense of the passenger. For travelers coming from non-risk areas, the tests will be free until September 14th, 2020.
Test results must be preserved / retained for at least 14 days after entry into Germany, regardless of whether the test was performed before or after entry, and submitted to the local health authority, upon request. Persons who are not tested within 14 days of entering the risk area, i.e. are not tested in accordance with the obligation, risk paying high fines, in accordance with local regulations (up to 25,000 euros). Being a passenger in international traffic, who is informed of its obligations, we expect you to conscientiously comply with the stated obligation (without being served with any order or decision).
Persons transiting through German territory are not subject to the measure of self-isolation, but they do not have the right of retention and are obliged to leave FR Germany immediately. It is understood that these individuals do not have symptoms of COVID-19.
According to the announcements, starting from October 2020, persons arriving from risk areas will be able to stop their self-isolation at the earliest on the fifth day from the date of entry, with a negative test for COVID-19.
We remind you that entering and staying of Montenegro citizens in FR Germany is still not possible, unless having an important reason.
Important reasons for entry from third world countries are:
- German citizens, EU citizens and the nationals of third world countries with existing residence permit in Germany;
- Health workers and health researchers, as well as nursing staff;
- Foreign qualified and highly qualified workers whose employment is necessary from economic perspective and whose work cannot be postponed or done abroad;
- Staff employed in transport of goods as well as other transport staff;
- Seasonal workers in agriculture;
- Foreign students whose studies cannot be fully organized from abroad;
- Foreign family members who come for a family reunion, as well as visits due to urgent family reasons;
- Persons who need international protection or protection for other humanitarian reasons;
- Diplomats, international organizations employees, military staff and humanitarian workers during the performance of their duties;
- "German emigrants";
- Transit passengers;
We note that traveling as a tourist is not considered as an important reason.
The passenger's previous place of residence is crucial in determining the possibility of entry, not their nationality.

We are taking you to Hanover
Even though you may not see Germany as a real tourist destination, we suggest that you do your best to get to this country at least once. In Germany, tourists prefer and most often go to Munich, Leipzig and/or Berlin, and yet we decided on a city in the federal state of Lower Saxony, and here's why:
Even though now Hanover looks like a new and modern city, it has a very long and interesting history. The most famous landmark of the city is the New City Hall, a building that is stunning not only on the outside but also on the inside. The dramatic history of the city becomes clearer when you look at the miniature models of this city from 1689, 1939, 1945, as well as the model of today's appearance. In order to compare the models with the current look of the city, we suggest that you enjoy the view from the top of the dome and notice the changes from your own perspective. And you will reach the top of the dome by a curved, parabolic elevator, the only one of its kind in Europe. The ride is likely to evoke an unusual feeling due to the angle at which you move along the dome.
Behind the New Town Hall is a large artificial lake Maschee, with the surface of 78 hectares. Skating is allowed on the lake in winter when the ice is thicker than 13 cm. You can reach the lake through the Eilenriede forest, which covers about 640 hectares and is larger in area than London's Hyde Park. You can choose between water sports, boat rides on the lake, or rides on the river Zambezi, which winds through the forest. Interestingly, the river leads through the part of the zoo where African animals are, so if you decide to take a boat ride, you will see the animals from a very unusual point of view.
A real gem of Hanover that you should not overlook is the baroque garden Herrenhauser Garten. You will also enjoy a walk amidst lavishly shaped floral arrangements, numerous fountains and sculptures just like the ladies and gentlemen of past centuries, as the garden has preserved its authenticity to this day. In addition to exotic plants from around the world, the garden houses the world's largest collection of orchids, an aquarium with over six thousand aquatic plants, but also representatives of the animal world. An interesting part of the garden for us is the artificial river made in 1676. It consists of three rooms and was originally used for refreshment in the warm summer months. The cave was renovated between 2001 and 2003. World-renowned artist Niki de Saint Phalle has turned it into a place of mystery, using broken mirrors and different angles. Modern art that "lies" within the baroque environment will surely delight your senses.
Interestingly, wherever you are in Hanover just a 10-minute walk separates you from a park, as this is perhaps the greenest city in Germany with the forest in the city and with about 500 km of bike trails.
When it comes to the Old Town of Hanover it is best to describe it as the core of old, colorful houses mixed with red-brick buildings which are covered with ivy. You will be taken back into the "old days" by the cobbled streets and wooden houses that were taken from all over the city after the Second World War and transferred here to the Old Town of Hanover. Nearby is the church of Aegidienkirche, a building that has remained unreconstructed to remind us of the tragedy of war in the midst of the abundance of beauty.
Interesting history of the Royal families
The daughter of King Nikola I Perovic Njegos, Ana, was married to German Prince Franz Battenberg, and they lived in Darmstadt. The youngest son of the king Nikola, Petar, was studying for 4 years in a boarding school in Heidelberg, but he passed a state exam in Stuttgart. The German Embassy was made in Cetinje in 1906. And what these two countries connect for 120 years is the Princess Milica, who "brought" golf to the Balkans. She is the patron of the golf club founded in Cetinje in 1906, and she had the honor of taking the first shot. In fact, the story is about the German Princess Utah von Mecklenburg-Strelitz, who in 1899 in Cetinje married the heir to the throne Danilo, the son of King Nikola I Petrovic Njegos, accepted the Orthodox religion and was named Milica.
We could write to you more about the many monuments of this city of fairs, the city of museums, theaters, galleries… We leave you to get an impression on your own because there are impressions that must be experienced. We are here to take you to Hanover.
Have a nice flight.
Yours, Montenegro Airlines
