Travel Alert: Arrival of incoming students from non-EU / EEA countries at risk
Good news! Today, RBC was informed that the Authorities have created an exemption that allows all our incoming students (with the necessary visas) to enter Germany. Without this exemption, 39 students in the incoming class would not be able to enter Germany under current Covid-19 travel restrictions. Now the rush is on for those students who have not yet been allowed to apply for visas (because of the travel restrictions). Also, right now, for several students there are no workable travel possibilities to Germany. We are holding thumbs that everyone will be able to join us by the 11th October, the date in our judgement after which it is often highly challenging to catch up academically and at which stage it would be better to defer entry till August 2021.
To the students arriving in Freiburg on Saturday or Sunday: travel well! We look forward to welcoming you!
