Covid Testing for Students
There will be the possibility of free Corona testing for everyone, who cannot get vaccinated, or for people who belong to a group for which there is no general recommendation to get vaccinated. Students from abroad, who live in Germany and are vaccinated with a vaccine, which is not accepted here, fall within this category as well and will have access to free testing. (https://www.bundesregierung.de/breg-de/themen/coronavirus/corona-tests-faq-1872540).
Students who would like to make use of free Covid testing have to prove that they are entitled to receive a free test. People who cannot get vaccinated for medical reasons, e.g. due to certain pre-existing health conditions, need a doctor’s certificate. This certificate has to show the reason why a vaccination against SARS-CoV-2 is not possible, however, it does not have to include a diagnosis. Pregnant women can use their “Mutterpass” as an equivalent to the doctor’s certificate. Students who are vaccinated with a vaccine that is not accepted in Germany (see the list of accepted vaccines at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut under www.pei.de/impfstoffe/covid-19), have to present their proof of enrolment from the university and their foreign vaccination card.
Please be aware of the fact that students who are not willing to get the Covid vaccine will have to cover the costs of regular Covid testing themselves.
