  1. Exchanging UK license

      This looks to be the case - http://www.verkehrsportal.de/fev/anl_08.php   " 10.  Das Datum der Erteilung der Fahrerlaubnis der jeweiligen Fahrerlaubnisklasse. Das Erteilungsdatum einzelner oder mehrerer Fahrerlaubnisklassen kann auch im Feld 14 unter Angabe der Nummer 10 eingetragen sein. In diesen Fällen wird in der Spalte 10 mittels *) darauf verwiesen."    
  2. Exchanging UK license

    That sounds a bit strange. I exchanged my UK licence for a DE one 2 years ago and on the front (4a) it has the date that I exchanged the licence (and it's valid from) but on the back next to the categories that I allowed to drive, it has the date I passed my test in the UK (1988).
  3. Traveling to UK from Germany - quarantine rules

    At the moment Germany is on the UK Amber list, which means that it is only people who have been vaccinated in the UK Vaccination Program that don't need to quarantine: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/red-amber-and-green-list-rules-for-entering-england#amber-list-rules-if-you-are-not-fully-uk-vaccinated   "Amber list rules if you are not fully UK vaccinated These rules apply if you are not fully vaccinated under the UK vaccination programme. Before travel to England Before you travel to England you must: take a COVID-19 test – children aged 10 and under do not need to take this test book and pay for day 2 and day 8 COVID-19 tests – to be taken after arrival in England complete a passenger locator form On arrival in England On arrival in England you must: quarantine at home or in the place you are staying for 10 days take a COVID-19 test on or before day 2 and on or after day 8 Read about quarantine and taking COVID-19 tests. Children aged 4 and under do not need to take the day 2 or day 8 test. You may be able to end quarantine early if you pay for a private COVID-19 test through the Test to Release scheme."
  4. Solidly terminating a contract

    If you google 'musterbrief kündigen' you can normally find information about how exactly to end a contract and a template you can use to either send to the provider or there can normally a way to do this online if you want to as well. https://www.kuendigung.org is one that I have used in the past to cancel contracts and for mobile phone contracts part of the site is https://www.kuendigung.org/kuendigung-handyvertrag-vorlage/      
  5. why is Chinese vaccines not approved for EU travel?

    I'm not too sure about J&J being worse against Delta - https://www.jnj.com/positive-new-data-for-johnson-johnson-single-shot-covid-19-vaccine-on-activity-against-delta-variant-and-long-lasting-durability-of-response     At 66% efficiency against covid, it's lower than the other approved vaccines but against covid but I think it's got quite high protection against severe covid.
  6. Dating Scene of Germany: Emotionally Unavailable

      And maybe this is the problem. If people don't see things the way you do then it's not advice they are giving but they are just attacking you personally.   People on here are trying to give you advice but because you don't see things the way they do, you aren't taking it as advice but purely as criticism or a personal attack. You have come on here for advice presumably because you want help to change your situation and find someone to be in a relationship with but if you don't accept that you might need to change yourself in order to change your situation then there's not a lot people can do to help you and you will continue to be in the same situation.   Accepting criticism is never easy and no-one likes it but you have a choice and it's not as if only one or two people on here are criticizing you and everyone else thinks you are doing the right thing and should continue the way you are. You can either at least think about the advice people have given you here or you may have to accept that you will be in the same situation in 2 years time and still searching for someone to be in a relationship with.

    So @Pesar I'm assuming by posting in this topic a year after your last post and 2 years after your original topic on this subject, you are still aren't in a relationship? If so, don't you think it might be about time to start listening to some of the advice people on here have tried to give you? If not, you may find yourself in the same position in 2 years time.
  8. @Tap   That's not an ideal situation and fingers crossed it improves quickly. With the time between the first and second vaccinations I'm assuming this is BionTech rather than AZ? I don't think there have been any reported cases of thrombosis with the mRna vaccines but that doesn't mean it can't happen.   Asking you to decide for yourself really isn't acceptable from a Dr. He should at least be able to give you the pros and cons or refer you to someone who can.   Remember you don't have to have the 2nd BionTech injection 6 weeks after the first. In the UK they were giving the 2nd injection up to 12 weeks after the first for all vaccines and not just AZ so you can always postpone the 2nd appointment for a few weeks and you will still have similar protection against corona.
  9. I don't have a preference and will happily have any of the vaccines, which have been approved. I've managed to get an appointment with my GP for AZ tomorrow even though I am Group 4 (50 years old) as a lot of people aren't too keen to have it either due to the negative press or the fact it's recommended to wait for 12 weeks between the jabs. The GP has mentioned that they still go by the priority list so with my GP at least, no-else in Group 3 wanted AZ.   For others that are eagerly waiting for a vaccination, keep checking your GP's website as mine updated their website this morning to say they had received some additional doses of AZ so people could email them if they were willing to be vaccinated with AZ.
  10.   So, it you think there is going to be a EU digital Impfpass what's the point with not using your current paper impfpass and wanting a new one just for the covid vaccinations? As fraufruit says, what does it matter if other people can see which vaccinations you have had?
  11. I doubt if we are going to need to show businesses our Impfpass in order to prove we are vaccinated against corona. The data protection laws in Germany probably won't allow this due to the fact that other vaccinations are also shown in the booklet. It will be an App with a QR code or a printed sheet with a QR code so I wouldn't worry about non-medical people seeing other vaccinations you have had.
  12. Is anybody cutting their own hair?

    There's a 'Für Haarige Angelegenheiten' here in Cologne
  13. Opinion: what do we expect after this covid-crisis???

      And what? Is there something wrong with one person saying they agree with another person's opinion?
  14. Not if they have legal insurance, which hopefully they have,
  15. Berlin Corona Vaccinations

      Unless you are a named companion of someone in a higher priority group or you have a existing medical condition that puts you in a higher group, you will be in Group 4, which is the last group to be vaccinated. As to when you will be notified and vaccinated no-one really knows. They are targeting everyone to be offered a jab by 21st September but whether this happens or not will depend on whether the vaccine companies deliver the amount of vaccines they are expected to and how many people can be vaccinated each day.   I'm in a similar position in Group 4 and if I get both vaccinations by the end of this year, I will consider it a bonus. I am not too sure where we are up to at the moment and whether everyone in Group 1 has been vaccinated yet.   The priority groups are available at https://www.bundesregierung.de/breg-de/themen/corona-informationen-impfung/corona-impfverordnung-1829940
