German Embassy Manama


With effect from Sunday, 09.01.2022, 0.00h CET, the Federal Government has reintroduced the entry restrictions for persons resident in Bahrain. This measure serves to prevent the further spread of COVID-19 infection. Therefore, entry from Bahrain into Germany from the said date with or without a visa can only take place for good reason or with full vaccination. Further information on entering Germany from Bahrain can be found in the FAQs of the Federal Ministry of the Interior in German and English (German: https://www.bmi.bund.de/SharedDocs/faqs/DE/themen/bevoelkerungsschutz/coronavirus/coronavirus-faqs.html#doc13738352bodyText3; English: https://www.bmi.bund.de/SharedDocs/faqs/EN/topics/civil-protection/coronavirus/coronavirus-faqs.html#doc13797140bodyText3).

In each individual case, the decision on entry into Germany is only taken at the border with Germany by the competent German border authorities. The German diplomatic missions abroad have no influence on this entry decision.

In many places in Germany, restrictions on public life are currently in force, partially depending on the local epidemiological situation. These restrictions are subject to change anytime. German Federal Government and German Federal States (Bundesländer) have restricted, and may further restrict, access to accomodation (in particular hotels), hospitality businesses (restaurants, bars, clubs etc.) as well as leisure, culture and sports events to individuals in possession of a valid certificate of vaccination or recovery from COVID-19 (“2G rule”) or an additional test certificate (“2G plus”), as the case may be. As a general rule, Germany only recognizes vaccines approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) or licence products thereof. Furthermore, in some cases, only EU Digital COVID Certificates or equivalent certificates are accepted. As a consequence, holders of foreign certificates (physical or digital) are in many cases not granted access to certain venues and events. Therefore, prior to your intended travel to Germany, please inform yourself about whether your trip, and activities planned in its course, can actually be conducted. Respective information is available at the websites of the German Federal State (Bundesland) you are travelling to. The German diplomatic and consular missions abroad cannot take any responsibility or provide any guidance in this regard.
