In Nuremberg there are many test centers where you may be tested for the Corona virus. PCR tests are offered by the municipal test center at the Albrecht Dürer Airport Nuremberg, the ProbaMed test station (Vordere Insel Schütt 1, 90403 Nürnberg), the Malteser (Jagdstraße 1, 90419 Nürnberg; Testzentrum-Nuernberg@malteser.org) as well as some medical practices. If your doctor's office does not perform tests, you can call the "Kassenärztliche Vereinigung (KVB) on 116 117 to find out which practices test in your area.

You can also take rapid antigen tests at the airport and at some private testing centers. If you are traveling by train, you will find a test center directly at Bahnhofstrasse 11. You will also find test centers within the old town and the other parts of the city.

An overview of the private rapid test centers can be found on the  page of the City of Nuremberg.

The following are part of the new entry regulations of the German government (CoronaEinreiseV) and are valid before, during and after arrival:

  • Registration (digital registration of entry)
  • Quarantine/isolation requirements
  • Proof of status (test, certificate of vaccination, proof of recovery)
  • Travel ban for visitors from areas with virus variations of concern and other requirements for travel providers, transport companies and mobile telephone service providers.

You can find more information at the website of the  German national government. 

A person is fully vaccinated when they have received a jab from a vaccine that is recognized by the EU and that immunization took place at least 14 days ago.

A person who is considered recovered is someone who was infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus within the last three months and can prove that they have recovered. Authentication of recovery is either a positive PCR test taken within the last 28-90 days.

Authentication for fully vaccinated are the following documents:

  • International Certificate of Vaccination ("Yellow Pass") OR
  • Confirmation of vaccination from an immunization center.

It must be clear from the document that the full vaccination took place at least 14 days previously. If two jabs are necessary for a given vaccine, both must have been administered. Only vaccines that are recognized by the EU are valid.

 

If you have already recovered from Covid-19, the following documents can prove this:

  • PCR test results from a laboratory.
  • PCR test results from a doctor.
  • PCR test results from a test center.
  • Any other government-authorized document which contains notice of a PCR test and the test date.

 

The following are NOT recognized as official proof:

  • A rapid antigen test.
  • Proof of antibody detection.

Currently, there is no official document which proves that someone has recovered from COVID-19. The most important proof is that your infection has been documented by a PCR test. This test must be at least 28 days and no more than six months old. The test date must be clearly documented as well as the person who was tested.

If you have lost the record of this test, please ask your doctor for a copy. If you took your test in a test center, the local authorities can give you proof of your recovery.

If you were infected with corona more than six months ago, you are no longer considered immune. You would, however, only require one vaccination. Fourteen days later you are considered fully immunized.

We recommend that you always carry a copy (or the original) of this test with you.

Where you need a 2G-Plus-Proof (Vaccinated/Immunized and tested), the testing requirement does not apply to vaccinated persons who have also received an additional vaccine dose as a booster vaccination.
