  • Austria US nationals will no longer be allowed to enter Austria unless they present a vaccination or recovery proof, as the Austrian government has removed the country from its safe countries list.

    From September 15, the only US travellers permitted to enter Austria will be those inoculated with the authorised COVID vaccines, which among others include the European Medicines Agency (EMA).

    Moreover, 14 days must have passed since the final vaccination occurred (for two-dose vaccines) and 22 days since the single-shot vaccine (Janssen) was administered. Thus, the validity of the two-shot vaccine stretches to 360 days, whereas the single-shot vaccine is valid for 270 days after the vaccination, SchengenVisaInfo.com reports.

    US nationals who have recovered from Coronavirus will also be eligible to enter Austria, provided they can prove they recovered from COVID-19 in the last 180 days or if they present a positive COVID-19 antibodies test no older than 90 days.

    On the other hand, unvaccinated Americans are obliged to present a completed entry registration form, a COVID detecting test upon arrival and submit a ten-day entry quarantine.

    Austrian authorities recognise the molecular-biological test (PCR), which has to be taken no earlier than 72 hours before arrival and the antigen tests (rapid), performed no later than 48 hours before entering the country.

      People who transit Austria without a stopover, which also applies to exclusively indispensable interruptions – provided that a departure is ensured, do not need to register via the pre-travel-clearance form and do not need to provide a negative test result, proof of vaccination or recovery from COVID-19.

      *From Third Countries:

      Travellers do NOT have to fill out the pre-travel clearance form if they are entering from states or areas of low epidemiological risk, carry proof of vaccination, recovery or a negative test result according to the below requirements, and have not stayed in any other state or area than those of low epidemiological risk or Austria in the past 10 days. 

      Travellers DO have to fill out the pre-travel clearance form if they cannot provide such proof or have stayed in a state or area other than those of low epidemiological risk or Austria in the past 10 days. 

      Countries and areas are divided into three categories, as specified hereafter. 

      1. Countries or areas of ‘low epidemiological risk’ (see Appendix 1 of the COVID-19 entry regulation 2021) 

      Travellers from these areas must either: 

      • be vaccinated. As proof, travellers must either carry a medical certificate (in German / in English) or a vaccination certificate, which is valid if:
        • the second dose of vaccine has been received, and no more than 270 days have elapsed since then;
        • 21 days, and no more than 270 days, have elapsed after vaccination in the case of vaccines for which only one dose is scheduled;
        • vaccination with a single dose of any vaccine, carried out less than 270 days before, for people who have recovered from COVID-19 (following a positive result to a COVID-19 test at least 21 days before the date of vaccination).

          The following vaccines are valid for entry into Austria:

        • Comirnaty from BioNtech/Pfizer

        As proof, travellers must either carry a medical certificate (in German / in English) or a recovery certificate confirming infection with SARS-CoV-2 in the last 180 days, certified by molecular biology (e.g. PCR test). Proof of neutralising antibodies, not older than 90 days, is equivalent to such a certificate.
      • provide a pre-departure PCR test (taken within 72 hours prior to arrival) or a rapid antigen test (taken within 48 hours prior to arrival), or carry out a test within 24 hours after entry.
        As proof, travellers must either carry a medical certificate (in German / in English) or a test certificate issued in German or English confirming that the holder has tested negative for SARS-CoV-2 (PCR or antigen testing), including at least the following data:
        • first and last name of the person tested;
        • date of birth;
        • date and time of sample collection;

      • pre-travel clearance; 
      • obligation of a 10-day quarantine. The quarantine can be ended from day 5 after entry with a further negative molecular biological test result (exemption from negative test for persons who have already recovered in the past 90 days and no longer pose an epidemiological risk, but still test positive; medical certificate [template in German / in English] required). 

      Quarantine requirement does not apply to entry: 

      • for professional purposes to visit an international institution and for diplomats; 
      • in the overriding interest of the Republic of Austria, in particular for cultural or sporting purposes;

    • Austria With the epidemiological situation getting improved in Europe and further in the world, Austria decided to open its borders for international travellers who do not pose any risk to public health.

      As such, the country decided to welcome vaccinated travellers while publishing the list of vaccines that are recognised by the country’s authorities.

      According to Austria’s Official Travel Portal, the country accepts proof of vaccination if the vaccine has been approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) or is under the World Health Organization (WHO) Emergency Use Listing, SchengenVisaInfo.com reports.

      Consequently, this means that all vaccines listed below are recognised as valid proof of vaccination in Austria:

      BioNTech/Pfizer (Comirnaty)
      AstraZeneca (Vaxzevria)
      Moderna (Spikevax)
      Johnson & Johnson (Janssen)
      AstraZeneca – Serum Institute of India (Covishield)

    • Austria The Austrian authorities have announced that travellers from tens of countries with a low COVID-19 infection rate will now be able to enter the country for tourism purposes without being subject to quarantine requirements.

      Consequently, travellers from the following European Union and European Economic Area countries will be allowed to enter Austria without having to stay self-isolated:

      Andorra, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, San Marino, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and Vatican City.

      Additionally, in line with the EU’s Recommendation, the same relaxed rules also apply to the following third countries: Australia, Israel, New Zealand, Singapore, and South Korea.

      Even though the quarantine requirement for arrivals from countries mentioned above has been abolished, certain restrictions still remain in place, SchengenVisaInfo.com reports.

      All persons entering Austria must register digitally in order to obtain a “pre-travel clearance”.

      Except for the pre-travel clearance, all persons entering Austria need to present one of the following documents:

      A negative COVID-19 test result: all persons need to provide a PCR test not older than 72 hours or an antigen test not older than 48 hours. For the tests to be recognised they need to be issued by medical authorities. Self-tests are not valid. Children under the age of ten are exempt from the testing requirement.
      A vaccination certificate: a person is considered vaccinated 22 days after this first dose is administered, which lasts three months from the vaccination date. After the second dose of the vaccine is administered, the validity of the certificate extends for another six months. Thus, the document is valid for nine months from the vaccination date.
      Proof of a previous infection: travellers are also allowed to enter Austria if they have already recovered from the COVID-19. Everyone is permitted to enter the country for six months after infection.

    • Austria Austria is set to relax several coronavirus measures from June 10th, including rules for masks, restaurants and curfew. Here’s what you need to know.
      Just over one week after relaxing a range of coronavirus measures on May 19th, Austria announced it will take steps to further relax existing measures from June 10th.

      Austrian health minister Wolfgang Mückstein indicated that the previous round of relaxations has been successful, meaning that further measures can be relaxed.

      The one proviso on the additional loosening of measures is that infection rates, along with hospitalisations and fatality rates, remain low in Austria.

      A further round of relaxations will take place from July 1st. More information is available at the following link.

      Masks

      From June 10th, the mask mandate will be relaxed for outdoor areas for people who have been vaccinated, have tested negative all those who have recently recovered from the virus.

      Masks have been required in outdoor areas where the mandatory two-metre distance has been difficult to maintain, for example at protests or in public spaces where large amounts of people congregate.

      The indoor mask mandate however, is expected to remain in place.

      Weddings

      The number of people allowed at weddings is also expected to increase, although specifics of this plan have yet to be released.

      Currently, food and drink may not be served at weddings and a maximum of 50 people are allowed to attend.

      The relaxations are expected to include a higher maximum on attendees along with a relaxation of the ban on catering.

      Restaurants

      From June 10th, the mandatory closing time for restaurants will be increase from 10:00PM to midnight.

      In addition, the number of people who may sit at a table will be doubled from four to eight people.

      Retail

      The rules are also expected to change in shops. Currently, one person is allowed per 20 square meters. This will be changed from June 10th to allow for one person per 10 square metres.

    • Austria Latest News: Government will extend COVID-19 lockdown until 8 February (Reuters, 17.01.2021). Government imposes mandatory online registration for passengers who want to enter country; 10-day quarantine remains in effect (Sofia News Agency, 12.01.2021). Austrian government extends ban on flights from South Africa and the U.K. until 24 January because of COVID-19 concerns (The Local – Austria, 08.01.2021).


      International Restrictions:
      *From within the EU:

      Note: Austria adopts its own national classification of risk areas, hence travel restrictions for Austria are not based on the common “EU Traffic Lights” map.

      Entry from an EU Member State or Schengen Associated country is possible without restrictions, provided that the COVID-19 situation in the country of origin is stable.

      The updated list of countries and regions affected is available at the Austrian Health Ministry website (in German only) and the tourist website Austria.info.

      Travellers are obliged to provide a digitally fillable pre-travel clearance form. In particular, this concerns the address of the place of stay or quarantine, the means of transport used to enter, as well as the notification of the countries in which the person entering has stayed in the past 10 days. The pre-travel clearance form is available in German and English.

      For travellers from risk areas, a 10-day quarantine is mandatory. When arriving, you need to present a “Declaration of Quarantine” form. After 5 days of quarantine at the earliest, you may take a PCR COVID test, or antigen test, to shorten your quarantine. You must pay for the test yourself.

      Some categories of travellers do not need to quarantine, such as those travelling for humanitarian reasons, business travellers, medical support, judicial purposes, and diplomatic staff. These travellers need to present a medical certificate verifying a negative COVID test that has been taken in the 72 hours before entering Austria.
