Risk area, high incidence area or virus variant area?

Depending on which country you are coming from, different regulations may apply. There are three categories of risk areas:

  • Risk areas as they have been designated by the Robert Koch Institute since the beginning of the pandemic
  • High incidence areas have a particularly high incidence value
  • Virus variant areas with certain variants of the coronavirus 

High incidence and virus variant areas are countries with a high risk of infection. The classification of the countries can change qiuckly. To find out whether your destination is classified as a risk area or to which category it belongs, get information directly from the Robert Koch Institute.
