The visa status should not prevent him from leaving Germany. Under normal circumstances overstays may be punished, but for people who leave on their own after a few days that would at most be a fine.

You cannot even camp in public places to begin with, period — virus or not. Case closed. See https://outdoors.stackexchange.com/questions/10809/why-is-it-prohibited-to-sleep-in-a-tent and Is wild camping possible in Germany? Where?, for starters.

In short: No. Although of course, for "can" in its literal meaning, it's "yes". First, hotels and the like are presently not allowed to accept you, as are camping sites, so you would necessarily have to do the equivalent of "wild camping". Which is your initial premise, too, if I understood right. Also, and more importantly, doing a tour across the ...

Summary: longer bike tours come with a lot of contacts. Almost all these can be avoided by doing short tours since you can take all your supplies with you for a day or two. This still leaves you 50 - 150 km x 360° from where you are in non-contact-mode. Long version: Being in "no contact, but go out and get some fresh air and sun on your own" Hesse the ...

TL;DR: You can, possibly, in some places, but it may not be a great idea. Whether it is legal depends on the Bundesland (state) — to put it simply, the federal government has no authority in these matters, and each state put down their own rules. There are federal rules for entry into Germany, but these don't apply as you are already in the country. ...

You will almost certainly be refused boarding by the airline or be turned away at the border by immigration. Germany has enacted an entry ban on all non-citizens, with the only exceptions being for certain travellers transiting to get to their home country or travellers seeking entry into Germany for urgent reasons. Unless you have an urgent reason to ...

In Germany, all residents have to register their place of residence with the municipal authorities. A special rule applies to hotels and hostels. Tourists with extremely long stays might come under this regulation, but not for less than a week.

No, foreigners staying temporarily in Germany are not required to report or register their whereabouts. Had you stayed in a hotel or another kind of commercially operated lodging, the accomodation would have been required to collect and keep records of your personal data, but these records are also only handed out to the authorities on request and not by ...

A simple solution would be that you bought a ticket for flying from Germany that departed the from same part restricted area your wife is arriving to. That way, you would be able to join her there. Needing to buy an useless ticket seems wrong on many fronts, but would be relatively easy solution. You would need to ensure it doesn't depart from a different ...

Normally she would enter on a 90 days tourist visa, as we don't yet have a long term family reunification visa. Your wife will never get a long-term family reunification visa because such visas are not issued to beneficiaries of the free movement directive.

According to the link to the embassy you provided you will be denied entry to Jamaica. This will most likely already be executed by KLM staff in Frankfurt. This means you will be denied boarding in the first place. The only ...

The question is, why to you believe that proof of accomodation must be supplied at all (i. e. is mandatory) when making the application? The application form for a D-Visa states that you you should give the address if known (for the C-Visa application, this not stated that clearly).
