Germany will lift a travel ban for European Union member states, other Schengen countries and the U.K. starting June 15.
Foreign Minister Heiko Maas announced Wednesday that bans will be replaced by travel advice for individual countries.
Travel warnings could be put in place if infections in certain countries rise, or if there are entry restrictions or quarantine measures for arriving travellers.
Maas warned that the coronavirus pandemic is not over and travelers should continue to be cautious, so that the reintroduction of cross-border travel would not turn into a second pandemic wave.
More than 182,000 cases have been reported in Germany so far, with 8,551 deaths.
