Travel bans: PCR testing mandatory for everyone – except illegal immigrants

Curiously, the PCR test requirement applies to everyone - except for illegal immigrants from Greece.

    The German federal government has introduced a mandatory PCR test for all air travellers. But not for everyone, as various sources from the Federal Ministry of the Interior have confirmed. Illegal immigration to Germany, which has been going on for a long time via Greek airports, is not affected by this mandatory test.

    Germans face travel bans in their own country, with overnight stays, and even private and family meetings in their own apartments not allowed. Now the mainstream is declaring millions more people in their own country to be the new enemies: First protesters who take to the streets for the basic rights of all citizens, who have been defamed as “Covidiotes”, followed by vaccine skeptics who have been declared “anti-vaxxers”. The latest species on the hit list are vacationers: families, children, married people and singles who are trying to escape the Corona madness.

    The PCR test obligation is mainly intended to deter and turn every vacation trip into a bureaucratic disaster with unforeseen costs, penalties for arbitrary Corona rules and forced quarantine.

    While official figures from the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (Bamf), confirmed that more than a third of asylum seekers now reach Germany by plane, research into the Federal Ministry of the Interior showed that no regulation had been issued regulating compliance with the PCR test requirement for migrant flights from Greece.

    And this is despite the fact that Greek airports have developed into a hub for the flow of migrants and human traffickers. According to information provided to Stefan Schubert by the Federal Ministry of the Interior (BMI) and according to the documents examined, Thessaloniki Airport in particular has developed into a hotspot for illegal migration.

    Its location between the Greek islands, Albania, Bulgaria and Turkey is strategically placed on the Balkan route. This is well known to the German authorities, the Federal Police and the Federal Ministry of the Interior and can also be clearly seen in the daily situation reports. But the federal government is doing nothing to stop illegal migration. Rather, the opposite is true.

    As a request from the AfD parliamentary group brought to light, the Greek authorities are not preventing these organized flows of migrants, but are even providing migrants with passports for onward travel.

    “Germany must put an end to this asylum tourism from Greece immediately and prevent entry. It cannot be that the Greek authorities issue asylum seekers travel documents so that they can board the next plane to Germany to choose their desired host country,” the deputy AfD parliamentary group leader in the Bundestag, Leif-Erik Holm, told Berlin weekly Junge Freiheit.

    In 2017, “non-Schengen flights” meant that illegal immigrants could be checked upon arrival in Germany and processed accordingly by the police. However, due to extreme pressure on the federal government by the European Commission and representatives of the migration industry, it was stopped.

    Experts in the Federal Ministry of the Interior have recently called for a review of all flights to Greece, but according to information from Schubert, the party political leadership in the BMI does not want to act.

    Meanwhile German vacationers from Mallorca are harassed with a PCR test obligation, while migrants fly in every month in the four-digit range from Greek accommodations where poor hygienic conditions prevail. The compulsory PCR test therefore applies to everyone – except for illegal immigrants from Greece. The government has not yet answered Schubert’s request for information.
