You are advised against entering with documents that have been reported as lost or stolen. They may still be reported as lost or stolen on the border control systems, and entry may be refused.

Please ask your airline about the documents you need to bring before you travel. Airline requirements differ from national regulations in certain cases.

Health information

There are no obligatory vaccinations.

The following vaccinations are recommended if entering the country:
- Vaccinations in compliance with WHO recommendations for routine immunisation

Measles:
The World Health Organisation (WHO) has said that low measles vaccination coverage is a threat to global health. So both children and adults should check that they have vaccination coverage and get it up to date where necessary.

Coronavirus:
Due to the increasing number of infections with the respiratory disease COVID-19, increased health checks and longer waiting times during travel must currently be expected. Due to cases of illness in almost all countries of the world, there is a general risk of infection via droplet infection. Travellers should therefore inform themselves about the spread of the disease and possible protective measures in their destination. They should also take into account the different standards and capacities of health care systems.

NB:
Tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) can be spread by tick bites from April to October in endemic areas.

Final requirements:
Please note that health information always depends on the health of the individual traveller and that it is no substitute for consulting a doctor or tropical medicine professional. Entry, visa and vaccination requirements can always change at short notice, and specific exceptions may occur. Only the relevant diplomatic mission can make legally binding statements or provide information above and beyond that given here. Please ask about this in advance.
