How are the services of ift Rosenheim currently offered?

The measures we have taken to maintain all our services have proven to be successful. This is particularly true in cases where customers do not wish to travel to Rosenheim for tests or meetings for good reasons. This includes the following measures:

What do I have to consider additionally, if I enter from a foreign country (risk area)?

In order to ensure that visits to ift Rosenheim (tests, coordinations, etc.) are conducted properly on site, we would like to draw your attention to the most important current legal requirements when entering from foreign risk areas:

  1. Since November 8 2020, travelers who have been in a risk area for more than 24 hours in the last 10 days must register at before arriving in Germany and carry a proof of registration upon entry.
  2. If, in exceptional cases, it is not possible to register digitally, travelers must instead fill out a replacement notification in paper form.
  3. Immediately after entering the country, visitors must go directly to their own home or another suitable accommodation that allows for seclusion and remain permanently secluded for a period of ten days after entering the country.
  4. The responsible district administrative authority must be informed immediately if typical symptoms of an infection with the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 such as cough, fever, cold or loss of smell and taste occur during the isolation period of 10 days.
  5. The obligation to quarantine ends early, at the earliest on the fifth day after entry, if the affected person has a negative test result. The associated test may be carried out on the fifth day after entry at the earliest..
  6. The quarantine obligation does not apply if there is a compelling professional reason that cannot be postponed. This must be confirmed by the employer or client. No test is necessary if the stay in Bavaria is less than 24 hours. If the stay is > 24 hours, a negative corona test result must also be submitted immediately to the district administrative authority on request. The underlying test may either have been taken no more than 48 hours before entry or must be taken upon entry into the Federal Republic of Germany. The test result must be kept for at least ten days after entry.
