I noticed that among the requirements for entering the UK currently are a negative coronavirus test in English, French or Spanish. But not German.
I am not planning to travel myself at the moment or at all in the future (barring some personal tragedy). But I was wondering what would be the best place in Germany to get such a test done to be sure the results are printed out in English?
I know airports do them in English, but can you just rock up to an airport if your flight is not that day (I would not want to risk getting a test on the same day as I fly, in case it comes out unexpectedly positive).
I am not sure if GPs can provide test results in English?
Germany is going to take a loooong time to vaccinate its way through the age band population compared to UK.
Not only due to stock / supply / contract issues, but also simply by the fact that Germany has a much older population, and will be slowed down spending considerably more time on age bands 80+, 70+, 60+.
Some Germans in UK may choose to travel to Germany to secure a Pfizer vaccine, such is the mistrust over the Astra Zeneca one.
So... given both UK and EU nationals can carry on using their EHIC cards in eachothers' countries post-Brexit, should brits 40+ and 50+ (health impact is greater 40+, than for under 40s) in Germany travel to UK to get a vaccine earlier, while Germany spends most of this year on 80+, 70+, 60+?
Note: current travel restrictions in Germany and UK will probably relax by the summer.
