Germany allows unmarried couples to reunite

The German Interior Ministry announced that from August 10, unmarried partners of German residents from countries that Germany considers high-risk will have an exemption allowing them to visit the country provided some proof they were in a long-term relationship before the pandemic.

Partners from "high-risk" regions and countries will have to undergo mandatory testing and quarantine until they have a negative test.

Valid proof of the relationship could come in the form of a previous joint residence abroad or a documented in-person meeting in Germany. The partner living in Germany must also provide a visit invitation, and the couple must sign a joint declaration affirming the existence of their relationship.
