Starting 11th October 2021 COVID tests will no longer be free for residents who are unwilling to get vaccinated. However, for international students who have been vaccinated with a serum which is not approved in the EU the COVID tests will stay free until 31.12.2021, following §4a Coronavirus-Testing-Regulations of 21.09.2021

This second series is necessary to received the "vaccinated" status in the EU, otherwise individuals without EU-approved vaccination are regarded not vaccinated.
