Germany, for instance, placed restrictions on travelers from Jordan starting with December 5. The announcement was made by the German health agency for disease prevention and control, the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), according to SchengenVisaInfo.com.

Any traveler to Germany who spent time in a high-risk zone will have to carry a valid PCR test result, or proof of vaccination or recovery. Travelers have to register and upload the documents through the digital registration portal einreiseanmeldung.de; they receive confirmation via email. Furthermore, travelers will have to present proof of vaccination, or recovery or PCR test results along with the travel confirmation to the air carrier.

Travelers from Jordan and other high-risk countries are obligated to quarantine. Those who upload proof of recovery or vaccination certificates will not need to quarantine. However, those who enter the country with a negative PCR test result can leave quarantine if they test negative again by the fifth day, according to RKI.

Jordanian officials had no comment on the news.
