Germany plans to remove border controls with most Schengen states on June 15
The German Ministry of Interior Affairs has announced plans to remove border controls with most of the Schengen Area member states as of June 15. This also includes abolishing the required quarantine period.
For Spain, it plans to remove the temporary internal border controls in air traffic on June 21. The temporary internal border with Austria, will remain in effect till November 12, 2020, on the basis of Articles 25 to 27 of the Schengen Borders Code.
Alongside this, the Federal Government of Germany has extended a travel warning for its citizens wishing to travel to third countries until August 31. This is in relation to risks of a second wave of infections caused from outside. They do not wish for German travellers to be stuck abroad again as restrictions change, sometimes with immediate effect. The countries of the EU, the Schengen-associated countries, and the United Kingdom are exempt. If situations improve, the government may choose to cancel this travel warning earlier.
