Restrictions will also be lifted for entry from South Korea, China and Japan if this can be agreed on a reciprocal basis. The list will be reviewed every two weeks.
Entry from any third country is possible for travelers who can demonstrate an important reason for their travel. The list of important reasons covers German and EU citizens and any third-country nationals with a right of residency in Germany. It also includes healthcare and social care personnel and health researchers, skilled workers whose economic activity is necessary and cannot be postponed or performed from abroad, freight and transport staff, seasonal workers, students who cannot continue their studies from abroad, travelers making visits for urgent family reasons, diplomats and staff at international organizations, and persons transiting Germany.
Travelers entering Germany after staying in a designated risk area abroad during the previous 14 days must undergo mandatory testing for COVID-19. The German government regularly updates its list of designated risk areas. See the "English archive" at the bottom of the Robert Koch Institute page for the latest updated list.
Travelers who need to be tested have the choice to either present a valid test taken within 48 hours prior to arrival, take a test on arrival at the airport, or take a test after returning to their place of residence in Germany, by reporting to the local health office. The test is free of charge if taken within 72 hours of arrival. Travelers with a negative test may be exempted from the 14-day self-isolation requirement, but some German states require a second negative test before granting an exemption from quarantine.
Quarantine requirements in Germany differ depending on the German state. All travelers arriving from high-risk areas (over 50 cases per 100,000 inhabitants) are required to stay in quarantine for 14 days on arrival in Germany. More information can be found here.

Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was nice, seats were comfortable"
Cons: "I enjoyed the flight"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient."
Cons: "Seats in economy were extremely small, and incredibly close. Possibly the most uncomfortable I've been in economy. Food was a baby's portion, which was really surprising. Pakistan might not be a prime destination, but it does not deserve second rate service."
Cons: "I was in economy. But the legroom was very poor. The next leg of my trip was also in economy, but was much more comfortable with seats further apart and more room under seats. So, you're taking a chance."
Cons: "No snacks or water except in the back of the plane. It felt like I was bothering the flight attendants when I went back to get a snack. Most good international flights place snacks in the galleys with drinks so you can grab yourself at any point at your discretion."
Cons: "Luggage handling could be a lot better. Two out of four of my bags were damaged beyond repair"
Pros: "Very comfortable seats & clean"
Cons: "Not applicable."

Pros: "The food, cabin crew behavior, entertainment systems were decent."
Cons: "1. Aweful legspace and overall space: I am 5'11'' and an average guy. It was like fitting myself into a cage. 2. Ground management is very bad. I felt that in both Boston and in Istanbul. They make people wait and the queue becomes long to adjust their delays. My flight from Istanbul to Dhaka was scheduled at 3:40 am. They started boarding passagers at around 3:10 am. Before that, they even bothered to show up at the boarding bridge, let alone informing people about their delay. The behavior of the groud crew was an embarrassment."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and the plane was very clean!"
Cons: "Did not love the choices of comedy shows on the in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Cabin crew in business class were not especially friendly and was really lazy during the welcome drink service. They did not even ask each passenger and greeted them to see if they want anything. Instead, they just held the tray of welcome drink and walked around the cabin once, then poured all the unconsumed welcome drinks into the bathroom. Service after take off was abysmal as well. No smile, no addressing passenger by name, all the service was done in a rush and a totally weird manner. The food is not very much to my liking since it heavily consisted of cheese, and there is literally no choice for you to get away with that. Having a traditional Turkish menu is great at one hand, but in this case it was a huge no-no."
Cons: "Short transit time. Very risky. Small seats."
Pros: "I am a business woman and my time is very valuable. I was supposed to fly on May 18,2017 with Turkish Airlines and my flight was rescheduled for May 19 without prior notice,call or a text message.I was driving to Miami on the 18 th just to find out my dilghtbwas cancelled.No one have me an option or asked me to reschedule.I had to fly on the 18 May and I picked this day for a reason.No one from Turkish airlines was present at the airport on the 18 May."

Onboard wifi is great, especially I can use my points to purchase wifi."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful but not extraordinary. The food was better than average."
Cons: "On bigger jets, first class seems roomier and better entertainment options. Can "stretch out", but not on 737-900. Food was okay.

Cons: "Plane was too small"
Pros: "Very happy the boarding agent booked us two seats together"
Cons: "I missed my original connecting flight in EWR because there was no gate available when we landed. After waiting several minutes, we taxiied to a different gate. I called customer service to let them know we were on the ground waiting for a gate assignment. Despite this, the flight boarded and left with several people missing the connection even though that flight pushed back later than its original time and departed almost an hour late. The plane was sitting there with the door closed. After that, I was put on the next available flight which was already delayed more than 2 hours. That delay extended even longer and was eventually cancelled due to weather. United CS reps were not willing to address passenger concerns. They closed the CS area in some portions of the airport forcing everyone to a very limited number of reps. I ended up having to rent a car and spending the first 5 hours of my birthday driving home. I should have been able to make my connecting flight and would have avoided the entire mess. Instead, I am out of my ticket price plus the additional cost of renting a car since my changed flight was cancelled due to weather not the gate assignment changes that originally caused me to miss the connection. What should have been a brief 4-5 hour trip ended up being almost a 20 hour day....United absolutely SUCKS!"
Pros: "Free Tv because of the delay."
Cons: "Hot as hell, AC terrible. Cramp"
Pros: "Both legs of flights went without a hitch"

Cons: "The 3 hour delay and turbulence was horrible We landed and I'm sick as a dog It's taking 20 mins to get off the plane"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful once the flight was underway."
Cons: "The check in people need to be more observant. If one's only allowed 2 carry ons, people carrying 3 or more items should not be allowed to board. Also, the on board crew should not allow people to stow more than 1 item in the overhead bins. I watched the woman in front of me store items in 3 different overhead bins."
Cons: "Extremely rude crew :("
Cons: "Awful delayed by hours."
Pros: "The crew were all very friendly"

Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "leg room was very tight & I weigh 145 pounds. Abe"
Pros: "Nice plane, great crew. on time departure and early arrival."
Cons: "United has terrible boarding procedures... a problem most airlines have... they need to get it together to stop the mad rush to get on the plane... 5 boarding groups does absolutely nothing... On a side note many things could be improved by offering free checked baggage and charge for overhead bins.... so many delays, arguments and general aggravation caused by people struggling for overhead bin space... just have a guaranteed spot overhead for a fee.... no more aggravation period... when they started charging for checked bags but offered free carry on the problems got worse... flip it around and several problems go away... simple."
Cons: "United continues to drop the ball on every flights I take. I only fly them when I absolutely have to bring platinum on delta and mosaic on JetBlue. Consistently worse vs those two start to finish."
Cons: "Mad I had to check my luggage. Never used to have to, I usually carry on."
Pros: "The first leg of the trip was very good and no complaints. Food and entertainment-N/A"
Cons: "Perhaps the people who have a tight connection could be allowed off of the plane first. I only had a half hour layover so by the time I got to the proper gate, I had missed my flight and had to wait eight hours for the next flight ."
Pros: "Flight was quick, efficient and courteous flight attendants."
Cons: "United's inefficient practices resulted in a missed connection for which they did nothing to compensate me."
Pros: "Boarding easy. I like the lines they formed for boarding zones"
Cons: "Delay for 2 hours"
Pros: "On time. Great staff. Very clean planes."
Pros: "Landed 20 minutes early...great flight. We choose UNITED everytime!"
Pros: "The pilot was very kind and kept everyone well informed."
Cons: "For my first time flying alone along with my fear of flying, there was a power outage of some sort having to do with United Airlines, so we spent 40 extra minutes in the air doing circles. Before landing there was about 15 other planes waiting to reach their gates, but none were open because of lack of communication. We sat on the plane for an extra hour or so, with our seatbelts on, and moving no where. Just extra stress and frustration added to the flight."
Cons: "Umm how about we were 3 hours late and missed out flight and had to spend $200 to rent a car at 1130pm and DRIVE 4 hours home? Not to mention we missed our connecting flight due to delays on United on the 16th! No food and no entertainment NOT HAPPY"

Pros: "Very efficient and timely"
Pros: "we got home on the same day without flight cancellation. delay was not updated on text notification reuglarly"
Cons: "significant delay... snack is a joke and purchase snack option??? really.. at least give us the full can of the beverage after a lengthy delay. cabin was too hot and temperature was not regulated.. start a special section for crying babies. the seats are too narrow for comfortable travel."
