Germany continues worldwide travel warning

The German federal government is maintaining the worldwide travel warning issued since March 17, 2020, even beyond August 31, 2020. This does not apply to some countries in the Schengen area, the United Kingdom, Andorra, San Marino, Monaco and the Vatican. Certain regions of Turkey are also not affected.

Germany's Foreign Minister Heiko Maas has now ordered the measure to remain in place until at least September 15, 2020. In addition, the Federal Foreign Office has been issuing travel warnings for states and regions that belong to the EU Schengen area for several weeks.

The approach is heavily criticized by the travel industry. For example, the advocacy group for German aviation writes that blanket warnings for entire third countries should be abandoned and a risk-based travel warning should be issued for affected regions in the respective countries. The professional representation of the travel agencies sees it similarly.
