About the information tool

Further information on the comprehensively differentiated travel and security advisories or travel warnings for individual countries can be found at the Federal Foreign Office and the Robert Koch Institute.

Please also inform yourself before your trip about the entry regulations for the return to Germany.

Passengers departing from FRA are strongly advised to contact their airline for information on the specific regulations regarding their flight and destination, before traveling to the airport. Please note in particular that in many countries a proof of your current Covid-19 status (vaccinated/recovered/test result) or other corona-related documents (e.g. a digital travel declaration) are required for entry. If you are unable to present this at Frankfurt Airport, it will not be possible to board the flight. Information regarding the test possibilities for departing passengers at Frankfurt Airport can be found here.


Our tips:

  • Check in online in advance
  • Take a minimum of carry-on items and comply with the rules on luggage
  • Be at the airport at least two hours before your flight's departure
  • Do not forget the required documents (e.g. ID document, proof of your current Covid-19 status -vaccinated/recovered/test result- or required documents depending on the country you are flying to) and keep them handy in your carry-on luggage

With these tips you save time and reduce your risk of contagion.

Terminal Parking - Terminal 2

The entrances to the underground car park P8 and P9 are open. If you already have a car park booking for Terminal 1 (P2, P3)*, but your airline departs now from Terminal 2 through the reopening, you can use the QR code from your Mobile Parking Pass also for Terminal 2 (entrances P8 and P9). A rebooking is not necessary.

Mask obligation

It’s mandatory to wear a face mask or other appropriate face covering at all times inside the terminal facilities, shops, restaurants and airport transportation facilities such as buses and the automated people mover. The only exceptions are children under six and persons who are unable because of physical impairments or health issues. The consumption of food and beverages in the terminal is basically possible.

Please note that since January 23, 2021 only medical masks (so-called surgical masks or masks with the identifier KN 95/N95 and FFP 2) are allowed. Simple community masks or scarves will no longer be sufficient. Please bring your own appropriate mask. If you need a replacement, additional masks and disinfectant can be purchased in various shops.

All airport employees who are in direct contact with customers also use appropriate protection. By working together, we can ensure safety and hygiene for everyone.

Hygiene measures

We apply the same social distancing rules as everywhere else and therefore ask you to keep at least 1.5 meters (five feet) away from other people. This also applies to seating and waiting areas. To remind you and generally help protect all travelers, we have installed appropriate green floor markings and signs. All counters are also equipped with plexiglass shields. As far as possible, please avoid paying cash in shops and restaurants. Currently it is unfortunately only possible to order take-away food in our restaurants.

Disinfectant dispensers are available for your use in the terminal areas. We also recommend that you regularly wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. We have also increased the frequency of cleaning at the airport and regularly sanitize all touchable surfaces in our terminals and vehicles.

Test possibilities

At the airport, there are various test options for returning travelers as well as for departing passengers. All information can be found here. Please note that these testing opportunities at the airport are available exclusively to arriving and departing passengers.

Certificates of vaccination

As of 7/1/21, digital EU vaccination certificates for German citizens and residents are available free of charge at Frankfurt Airport pharmacies by presenting your vaccination card and ID. Citizens must reside in Germany.

The currently open pharmacies are located at the following places

  • Shopping-Boulevard
  • Departures Z
  • The Squiare

Many shops and restaurants at the airport are open again and looking forward to your visit. Numerous restaurants in the terminals offer indoor catering with seating. Please inform yourself on site in the terminals about the respective catering offer and the accompanying state Corona regulations. Naturally, take away food and drinks bought at many restaurants and shops, are permitted to be consumed in the terminals. 

* Please note that not all of the shops at the airport sell the entire range of protection products.

Health Protection from Safety Stations

Health Protection from Safety Stations

Face masks, hand sanitizer, and disinfectant gel for your trip are now also available from two specially converted vending machines: our "Safety Stations". You'll find them in Terminal 1 in Concourse B and in the passageway between Concourses B and C (near Coffee Fellows and Relay). The Safety Stations accept cash payment in euros, as well as major credit cards and Apple Pay. We wish you a good and safe trip from Frankfurt Airport!

The new service offer makes the travel experience even easier and faster. Biometric facial recognition enables members of the frequent flyer program "Miles & More" to pass through security checks and boarding gates touchless - an important health and hygiene safety measure in times of Covid-19. This applies initially to selected Lufthansa and SWISS flights.

Further information and registration

If your health or general condition suddenly takes a turn for the worse after arriving at Frankfurt Airport, contact our personnel right away to request medical assistance. If necessary, you can head for the emergency outpatient clinic at our medical center for a checkup, test or treatment. Further information can be found here.

Direct transfer at the airport for the purpose of onward travel by air to another (Schengen) state is not considered entry within the meaning of the Coronavirus Entry Regulation (Einreiseverordnung). Passengers in air traffic who only change planes at Frankfurt Airport do not have to comply with the provisions of the Coronavirus Entry Regulation. In these cases the digital entry registration, requirements for mandatory testing or providing proof of vaccination, quarantine regulations and travel bans from countries affected by coronavirus variants​​​​​​​ do not apply.
 

Further information can be found here.

Information for travel returnees

In general, all passengers (whether returning from a risk area or non-risk area) who wish to enter Germany by air, need to be tested and show proof of a negative Covid-19 test before departure. Vaccinated and recovered persons are only affected by this testing requirement if they have been in a virus variant area within the last ten days. In all other cases, proof of vaccination or proof of recovery is sufficient. Children under 12 years are exempted from the testing requirement. Further information can be found here.

In addition, the following rules apply to travelers returning from risk areas:

You must notify the local health department without delay by submitting a before entry completed arrival form through a entry portal. Carry the form with you at all times, either printed out on paper or stored on an electronic device. If digital registration is not possible, in exceptional cases you must fill in a written substitute registration and hand it in to the carrier or the border authority. Returning travelers from all risk areas need to be able to provide the proof of the negative Covid-19 test no later than 48 hours upon request to the competent authority.
