  1. I am an English/Deutsch dual national living in Germany and am planning a short trip (4 days) to England with my wife, a German national, next week. We are both 3x covid-vaccinated and will both travel using German passports to avoid getting split up at the airport. We are flying with Lufthansa who have just sent me a confusing email, full of no longer valid links to RKI pages etc. and the following (without any links):   If you click on the link below that notice which reads "Verifizierten Schnelltest kaufen" you are sent to a page for booking a test at the airport, not for selftest-kits.   So what do we actually need to re-enter Germany after four days away? I have been told that the self-tests from the chemist are accepted. Lufthansa have been most unhelpful in answering our questions.
  2. Ok, I'm back I Germany. I needed to neither show proof of vaccination nor a test to enter England. When I checked in online for my Lufthansa flight back to Munich I had to upload the QR code from my vacc. certificate, luckily I took a paper copy with me which made it easy to upload it from the phone I was using to check-in. 
  3. Thanks everyone for your replies. I will pack a couple of German Schnelltests just to be sure and I will let you know how I get on.   The Lufthansa email is really out of date and confusing, they need to update it or stop sending it automatically. And it would be nice if they answered their customer service hotline now and again.
  4. I recieve Austrian, German and UK state pensions. My UK pension is almost a full pension as I have paid 32 years contributions, however most of those contributions were Class II voluntary contributions. I pay the usual 7,3% health insurance and 3,3% care insurance to my Krankenkasse from both my UK and Austrian pensions and it is automatically deducted from my German pension. Now someone on a UK forum has suggested that my UK pension entitles me to free health insurance from the AOK. Does anyone know anything about this?
