BERLIN (Reuters) – Germany has agreed to lift its warning against travelling Turkey to four provinces with low rates of coronavirus infection as part of a deal to help larger-scale travel between the two countries resume, the German government said.

The German foreign ministry said it was dropping warnings against travel to Antalya, Izmir, Aydin and Mugla provinces, where the coronavirus’s prevalence stood at only five new infections per 100,000 inhabitants over the course of a week.

Turkey would also require of all travellers leaving for Germany that they show a negative coronavirus test result less than 48 hours old before leaving, the ministry’s Tuesday statement added.

Some 3 million of Germany’s 80 million inhabitants have a Turkish ethnic background, while Turkey’s sea coasts have historically been among the most popular tourist destination for Germans of all ethnicities.
