Vacation without a mask and minimum distance – after more than two years of pandemic, this is possible again in many countries. But a trip completely without Corona rules is still the exception in 2022. The ADAC and the Federal Foreign Office provide regular information on the current status of the regulations. We have summarized the most important of them for popular travel destinations.
Summer vacation 2022: Masks are compulsory on all flights to and from Germany
Not everything is the same, especially for air travelers. Because while many countries have abolished the obligation to wear masks on board, it still applies on all domestic German routes and on flights that take off or land in Germany.
That means: Anyone flying from Frankfurt to Mallorca or vice versa must wear an FFP2 or medical mask when boarding and disembarking and throughout the flight (exception: when eating and drinking) – regardless of the airline. At German airports, however, there is no obligation to wear mouth and nose protection.
Corona rules in Spain
All corona-related entry regulations have been lifted; Vacationers from EU countries no longer need proof of vaccination or a negative corona test. It is also no longer necessary to fill out an entry form. However, checks by the health authorities are possible on entry.
There is no longer a mask requirement for restaurants, shops, etc. Mouth and nose protection only has to be worn in public transport, health facilities such as hospitals, health centers, pharmacies, and the like. This does not apply to children under the age of six.
Reading tip: In June and July there are strikes at many Spanish airports. We explain when holidaymakers have to prepare for travel chaos.
Corona rules in Italy
Vacationers can enter without corona-related restrictions. A 3G proof is no longer required. The obligation to provide evidence of recovery, vaccination or a corona test only applies to hospitals and care facilities (the 2G rule applies here).
A minimum distance of one meter from other people is still required. Mouth and nose protection no longer has to be worn in shops, restaurants, etc. However, FFP2 masks are still compulsory on public transport until the end of September.

The corona rules have largely been lifted in Turkey. Proof of vaccination or a negative corona test is no longer necessary.

It is recommended to keep a safety distance of three steps to people outside of your own household. Masks are only compulsory in the healthcare sector.
