To ensure that lectures and examinations can be held safely and without risking the spread of infection, the »3G« rule applies to all universities and higher education institutions effective 24 August 2021. According to the rule, only vaccinated, recovered and tested individuals (»Geimpfte, Genesene und Getestete«, or »3G«) may participate in in-person events. If you wish to have a vaccination against Covid-19 there are two ways to book an appointment: with an general practitioner or with a vaccination centre in Thuringia.
After your arrival in Weimar, you should register your address with the city authorities ("Bürgerbüro") as soon as possible. If you are a non-EU citizen, you must apply for a residence permit at the immigration office ("Ausländerbehörde").
