aeroplane posted a topic in Life in BerlinHi all, It seems that every Bundesland, or even every city seem to follow the rules for Corona restrictions differently. Can anyone please tell me what is the rule about staying at a Hotel in Berlin during Easter. There seem to be a general limitation as to what circumstances are allowed for hotel stay, generally I understood only business travel is allowed but there perhaps are other exemptions?. I believe during Xmas it was allowed if one was visiting nearest family for example. I stayed myself in hotel here in Frankfurt in February when my inconsiderable neighbor was renovating his flat and despite a clear note in renting contract was replacing flooring and i did not wanted to get exposed to asbestos particles ( contract say there is asbestos encapsulated in the floor, why it is prohibited to touch it). At that time I just booked a hotel near my home here in Frankfurt and none even asked a question why I am staying there. So now we want to visit our daughter who lives in Berlin, we will all get tested ect but it our only chance to see each other since the beginning of pandemic so we are all willing to take a risk.
My long-term significant other (5+ years) is a citizen of an EU country (not Germany), but is currently visiting some of her family in the US for the past few months. I would like for her to come visit me in Germany in the spring, but I'm having trouble understanding the current restrictions. I found a section on this page: https://www.bmi.bund.de/SharedDocs/faqs/EN/topics/civil-protection/coronavirus/travel-restrictions-border-control/travel-restriction-border-control-list.html;jsessionid=6E4FE4E82D6950A39D89E67F5BEC27D3.1_cid287 Which describes that if we provide proof of our long-term relationship, and I provide an invitation for her to visit, etc., she can enter. However, it also says " Unmarried partners from third countries that are not on the “positive” list” may enter Germany for short-term visits ." I would assume this means no one can enter for a partner visit from the US. However, I've heard of other people in similar situations and their significant other was able to enter (from other countries, but high-risk countries nonetheless). Is there a government agency I should perhaps reach out to for more information? I know of course any travel is somewhat risky, but we would prefer not to wait until the late summer or fall to see each other again.
