EU travel restrictions: No General entry exceptions for couples

The Federal Ministry of the interior rejects a loosening of the corona-related EU-entry restrictions for non-officially securitised couples. This does not correspond to the agreements on the European level, the Ministry said on Friday in Berlin. "We will see, there is no room for Interpretation," said a spokesman.

the EU Commissioner for Ylva Johansson had called the day before EU countries, and travel companies to grasp the concept of "partnership", as far as possible. The Partner or "Sweetheart", a EU-citizens or EU-residents have a long-lasting and proven relationship, should be excluded from the restrictions on admission, wrote Johansson under the Hashtags #love isessential to (love is indispensable), and #loveisnottourism (love is not tourism).

To contain the Coronavirus pandemic had the middle of March, all EU States agreed with the exception of Ireland, as well as the Non-EU countries Switzerland, Norway, Liechtenstein and Iceland to ban non-essential travel into the EU first. Since the beginning of July of this entry, the stop is loosened slowly and, initially, for 14 countries, in Germany, initially for only eleven countries. The number of Covid-19-new infections in the last 14 days is especially crucial. But also for the other countries from which citizens will not be allowed to enter the country again, exceptions are provided for EU citizens and their families.

The relaxations include family reunification to German or EU-citizens living in Germany. This applies to spouses and registered partners and spouses and minor children. "This also corresponds to the proposal from the Commission," said a spokesman. For other relations of the special protection of the basic law does not apply, the question of how Visa and border authorities in a relationship should check the place. The EU Commission had given to this group of people, no recommendations. "If Commissioner Johansson calls in this respect, else, not you again, the attitude of the Commission as a College," the spokesman said.
