Safety and Hygiene Concept
Please be aware that changes may occur with regard to the development of the pandemic. According to our current safety and hygiene concept, the following rules apply:
Participation on site
Vaccinated and recovered persons only
Participation on site is only possible for fully vaccinated and recovered persons. In addition to the respective proof of vaccination or recovery, proof of a negative antigen test for COVID-19 performed on the same day by a certified testing center must be provided.
All guests have to show their proof of complete vaccination or recovery and additional proof of a negative COVID-19 antigen test in an electronic form at the check-in. Self-tests are not accepted.
According to the Federal Ministry of Health applies:
- Basic immunization (2 vaccinations) is valid until September 30, 2022.
- Booster applies indefinitely.
- Officially recovered is valid for 3 months
- But for cross-border travel, the EU has limited the validity period of basic immunization to 270 days. Nevertheless, the decision of the EU to limit the validity does not eliminate the freedom of movement as fundamental freedom of the European Union. Vacation travelers are therefore not prevented from entering Germany.
What is the validity period of vaccination certificates within Germany?
The vaccination certificates issued after two vaccinations are valid until September 30, 2022 as proof of a complete vaccination. As of October 1, 2022, a booster vaccination (i.e., a 3rd vaccination) is generally required to be considered “fully vaccinated.”
Has the EU limited the validity period of vaccination certificates?
Yes, through EU Regulation 2021/2288 of December 21, 2021, where the EU Commission, through a so-called delegated act, has set a recognition period of 270 days for the EU digital vaccination certificate after the completion of basic immunization. However, this duration only applies to cross-border travel.
In addition, we strongly recommend all participants to download the corona warn app before attending the event.
