I am embarressed to tell you that I do not know how to do a link.

 :lol:

 

You are not alone! Attaching photos is my area of non-expertise.

 

Unfortunately I think snowing might be right - test to fly, vaccination to avoid quarantine.

 

Still, you have made progress, with proof from the GP, and you did a link :) or two!

Heads up, @colincostello: it looks like Germany is classifying the UK as a risk region again starting Sunday, due to the detection of cases with the Indian variant B.1.617.2.

 

This means you'll have to quarantine upon arrival whether you're vaccinated or not.

The Guardian reports serious problems for people travelling between the UK and the EU, people are sent back or detained in quarantine. I am very glad I do not need to travel this year.

Thanks for the warning about the Indian variant. I already knew but I appreciate the effort. Back to square one.

But it is still ok to come back here.  You just need to ask airline which test you need.  The tests and quarantine in Berlin are clear.  Not difficult.  Unless I am missing something.

The test result needs to be in English to be valid to go to the UK. Or French and Spanish. Are any test centres giving forms in English?

I've been tested around 8 times in 3 centres over the past weeks.

Every time I asked for the result in English, I was given it.

 

One centre even has German/English as standard.

 

Once, I booked and said I wanted English results. When the German version was handed

out and I mentioned about this, they changed it for the English version on the spot (with an apology)

 

But then, as ever, I'm up North...

Thanks for that. I haven't been to a test centre yet, not even one in a shopping centre. I got one vaccination done though.

So it seems that the EU have agreed to digital proof of vaccination. This may make it easier to travel to Germany. Except I do not have a smart phone . Was there no metion of a paper equivalent?

Should I fly or take the train when I eventually try to return to Berlin? Which gives the best chance? 

 

Fly (direct).  Less people to deal with.

That may be so , but there are not any border checks with the train.  But there may be another problem. I could get permission from Eurostar to travel from London to Brussels and then get refused boarding a DB train from there to Berlin.

Why are you unwilling to fly? I am beginning to doubt you are genuine.   The great thing about flying is, if situation changes, the airline will let you know.  With the train not so.  I assume you have managed to gather together evidence that you are a German resident.  But again, I am losing patience asking you this as every reply you have given about this has been circular.

There are checks- stop dithering and book a flight. You have had 2 shots, you can get your tests and quarantine. Not rocket science!!

All transportation services now require an IQ test.  You've been warned.
