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 Leipzig
"A neighborhood where lindens grow" would be a translation of the Slavic word "lipsk" after which was Leipzig named. If you want to discover the connection between lindens and Leipzig and to get to know the long tradition and culture of East Germany, then this is the ideal place for you.
Leipzig is home to the largest monument in Europe, built to commemorate the "Battle of the Nations", in which Napoleon was defeated and forced to retreat to France. The monument is 90 meters high, and from the top, there is a spectacular view.
In this city, you can visit one of the oldest cafes in Germany (Auerbach's cellar), which was described by the master of German literature in "Faust", and in which he gladly drank wine.
Tourist attractions that you must see in this city are: the museum of Johann Sebastian Bach and the church of St. Thomas (Thomaskirche) in which Bach was cantor, where his statue, built-in 1908, is located. The Old Town with many cafes and pubs located in narrow, cobbled streets are surrounded by medieval houses; one of the oldest universities in Europe founded in 1409; The Town Hall where the feudal Court of Appeal and the prison with the execution site on the market square are located; the largest railway station in Europe; one of the largest zoos in Germany…
This city has so many sights that it is difficult to list them, let alone describe them in detail. That is why it only remains for us to wish you a pleasant stay. Call us and we will take you to Leipzig.
Have a nice flight.
Yours, Montenegro Airlines
