Just like you, we've been looking forward to finally meeting other developers in person. It seems that we’re finally getting closer to normal, and you can expect an epic post-covid event!
Current Coronavirus Situation in Germany
As of Saturday, June 11, 2022, all COVID-19 entry restrictions to Germany are provisionally lifted. For the most recent updates, please see here.
77.16% of the population in Germany is fully vaccinated (as of August 2022). For the most recent updates, please see here.
Travel Regulations for Foreigners
For entry into Germany, proof of vaccination, proof of convalescence or proof of testing is no longer required. For the most recent updates, please see here.
Unfortunately, that does not hold for countries in the red zone. Travellers are required to register before entry, provide a negative PCR-test result and quarantine for 14 days. The list of areas of variant of concern is available on the website of the Robert Koch-Institute.
We strongly advise that you book refundable accommodation and travel. Please see the website of your travel providers for more information.
Our corona policy is in line with the government guidelines. This year we won’t be screening for temperature or checking proof of vaccination or recent negative test (PCR or rapid test).
But we’re asking you to be responsible: if you have any symptoms or have been in contact with someone tested positive recently, please choose remote participation and watch the conference online, to ensure other attendees' safety. It would be respectful to other attendees that attending people have either vaccination or recent PCR/rapid test, although this won't be enforced. If you feel vulnerable at an event full of other people around you, you are welcome to wear masks, and we can provide them of course.
We provide the following measures at the in-person part of the event:
- Sanitizer dispenser stations will be available inside the venue.
- Bathrooms cleaned frequently.
- Masks are optional and will be offered at the registration desk.
We understand that along the way, there might be obstacles for some attendees, as the situation with Covid’19 can always change. That’s why we can offer you several options for different cases:
Case 1 : If an in-person ticket holder is not able to enter the UK due to Covid’s recent restrictions and informs us 14 days before the conference date - we can offer ticket transfer, downgrade to remote or refund.
Case 2 : If an in-person ticket holder is not able to enter the UK due to Covid’s recent restrictions and informs us less than 14 days before the conference date - we can offer downgrade the ticket to remote and credits for 1-year GitNation Multipass, providing access to 10 additional remote events and dozens of talk & workshop recordings from our past conferences, or ticket transfer.
Case 3 : If the in-person part of the event is cancelled due to the worsening situation with Covid, the whole event will be held online - all in-person ticket holders will receive a full remote ticket and the option of choosing between a 2-year GitNation Multipass, providing access to 20 additional remote events and tens of talk & workshop recordings from our past conferences, or a PRO remote workshop. We can also offer the opportunity to transfer your ticket to another future GitNation conference.
