  • Austria Starting from next Saturday, December 25, Austria will tighten entry restrictions for travellers from Denmark, the Netherlands, Norway and the United Kingdom, after the country now categorizes all four as virus variant areas.

    The decision was introduced on Wednesday, December 22, and means that travellers from these countries are now obliged to quarantine upon arrival in Austria for a period of ten days, though there are exemptions, SchengenVisaInfo.com reports.

    “People who are fully vaccinated (double jabbed) and have received the third booster jab can enter Austria with a negative PCR test (valid 72 hours). Children under the age of 12 are exempt, and teenagers eligible for the Holiday Ninja Pass will be able to enter with a negative PCR test (valid 72 hours),” the official Austrian travel website explains.

    The Holiday Ninja Pass is issued to teenagers born on September 1, 2006, and after, who are not vaccinated against COVID-19 but are travelling to Austria with their vaccinated parents. These teenagers are obliged to be tested with at least two PCR (valid for 27 hours) and one LFT test (valid for 48 hours) during a week-long period and record the results in the Holiday Ninja Pass. They are also required to present negative results of a PCR test upon arrival in Austria, which counts as the first test.

    With the new move to categorize more countries as virus variant areas, from Saturday and on, Austria’s list of countries where a high number of Omicron cases have been detected consists of the following:

    Angola
    Botswana
    Denmark
    Eswatini
    Lesotho
    Malawi
    Mozambique
    Namibia
    The Netherlands
    Norway

  • Austria Starting from next Monday, December 20, the lockdown in Austria will come to an end, with the capital city of Vienna being the last part of the country to reopen hotels and restaurants. From the same date, the country is set to reopen for tourism.

    “The infection situation in Austria has eased. With Vienna reopening hotels and restaurants/cafés/inns on December 20, the nationwide lockdown in Austria comes to an end. Travel to Austria for touristic purposes is possible again for vaccinated and recovered people!” Austria’s official travel website notes.

    Yet, the same announces that entry restrictions have tightened up compared to those that were effective pre-lockdown.

    “From December 20, you also need a PCR test unless you have already received the booster jab – if you can’t show a PCR test upon arrival, you immediately have to self-isolate until you can present a negative PCR test,” the website also points out.

    The decision comes at a time when a large share of the European Union and Schengen Area countries have already imposed the obligation to test for COVID-19 for all incoming passengers, including those vaccinated and recovered from COVID-19.

    The vaccines recognised for entry into Austria are BioNTech/Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Covishield, Johnson & Johnson, Moderna, Sinovac, and Sinopharm. The travellers must have at least two doses of the vaccine, and the final dose must have been taken in the last 270 days. Those who have had a booster dose administered are exempt from the on-arrival PCR test.

    At the same time, those with only one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and proof that they have fallen ill from the virus and recovered from it in the past, can also enter the country.

    As per those attempting to enter Austria on the basis of a recovery certificate, they must be aware that their certificates are valid only for a period of 180 days from the moment they were detected as infected with COVID-19. Tests showing antibodies in the traveller’s blood are no longer valid for entry into Austria.

    Once in the country, travellers are subject to the same rules as Austrian citizens. This means that the 2G rule applies to them as well.

    According to the 2G rule, in order to be able to attend places like hotels, restaurants, bars, nightclubs, leisure centres, gyms, cinemas, theatres, Christmas markets, ski lifts/cable cars, hairdressers, proof of vaccination or recovery is required. Access to these countries with only a COVID-19 test is not possible.

    Travellers are reminded that the Covishield, Sinopharm and Sinovac vaccines are only accepted to enter Austria and not for entering the places listed above.

  • Austria After imposing a national lockdown and restricting entry for the majority of travellers, the Austrian authorities have revealed that travel for touristic purposes will be allowed again after December 13.

    The Austrian government previously imposed a temporary lockdown due to increased COVID-19 infection cases. The ban entered into force on November 22, meaning that travel to Austria has been impossible for the last 16 days and will remain so for another six days, SchengenVisaInfo.com reports.

    Accordingly, as soon as the temporary lockdown is over, those who wish to enter Austria for travel purposes will be able to do so, provided that the authorities don’t impose any additional entry rules.

    “A lockdown is in effect in Austria since November 22 until probably December 13. Travel to Austria for touristic purposes will only be possible again after that date,” the statement of Austria’s official travel portal reads.

    However, all those who wish to travel to Austria after December 13 should note that they are still required to follow certain entry rules in order to be permitted entry.

    Austria currently requires all persons to provide a COVID-19 test result, a vaccination certificate, or a recovery certificate. Those who don’t hold a vaccination or recovery certificate must present a negative PCR test result taken within 72 hours. Rapid antigen tests are not accepted.

    The decision was announced by Austrian Chancellor Alexander Schallenberg, who said that the lockdown would last for a period of 20 days from November 22 to December 13, though the same will be reviewed after ten days and removed if the situation improves.

    “We don’t want a fifth wave,” the Chancellor said upon a meeting of the governors of Austria’s nine provinces yesterday.

    At the same time, the country is set to impose a legal vaccination mandate from February 1, 2022, becoming the first country in the world to make vaccination mandatory.

    The lockdown means that travel to Austria will not be possible for a period of 20 days unless for absolutely essential purposes.

    “In Austria, due to the current Coronavirus infection situation, a temporary lockdown will come into effect from November 22 until December 13 at the latest. Travel to Austria for touristic purposes will only be possible again after this period,” Austria’s official travel website notes.

    The decision follows a prior one by the Austrian authorities to no longer accept COVID-19 antigen tests for entering the country or having access to indoor areas.

    Moreover, the country has also decided to put an end to the validity of vaccination certificates, which means that from December 6, vaccination certificates that prove that the holder has taken two vaccine doses will be valid for nine months only.

    “Two-dose-vaccinations are valid for nine months only after the second dose from December 6 (previously: 12 months),” the Austrian authorities note.

    Data by the World Health Organization (WHO) show that Austria has reported 994 new cases per 100,000 residents within the last seven days, which figure is much higher than in the majority of other EU countries.

    Other countries in the block with high rates of infections for 100,000 residents within the last seven days are also Slovenia (1,096), Croatia (897), Slovakia (846), and the Netherlands (723).

    All these countries, in spite of the high COVID-19 numbers, have high vaccination rates. Currently, in Austria, 69.3 per cent of the total population have been vaccinated against COVID-19, while the rates are much higher in some countries like Portugal, where 87.9 per cent of the total population have been vaccinated against the virus.

    Internal Restrictions:
    *Travel in Austria: FFP2 face masks are compulsory on public transport and in taxis.
    *Public spaces and services: FFP2 facemasks are compulsory in shops, banks, bakeries, cable cars, museums, libraries, post offices, pharmacies, doctors’ offices and on public transport.
    Christmas Markets, bars, restaurants, nightclubs, theatres and hotels are open only for people who are vaccinated or have recently recovered from COVID-19. Regional measures, including rules on facemasks, may vary.
    Austria will accept the proof of COVID-19 recovery and vaccination record. Your appointment card from vaccination centres is not designed to be used as proof of vaccination and should not be used to demonstrate your vaccine status.
    *Lockdown for unvaccinated people until 21 November: Austria’s current “lockdown for unvaccinated people” means that rules within Austria are stricter than rules for entry at Austria’s borders. You are considered “fully vaccinated” for 270 days from the date of your second or third dose of a vaccine recognised by the Austrian authorities. If you are not fully vaccinated and cannot prove recent recovery from COVID, you cannot enter hotels, restaurants, bars, nightclubs, theatres, concerts, cinemas and shops that do not sell essential items. These rules do not apply to children aged under 12. Children aged 12 to 15 can present a PCR test not more than 48 hours old.
    *Nationwide lockdown from Monday 22 November: During lockdown, all non-essential businesses will remain closed. This includes restaurants, bars and most shops. The only valid reasons to leave the home include medical attention (including vaccinations), education, exercise for physical or mental health, and purchasing essentials such as food or medicine.
    *Testing positive for COVID-19 in Austria: If you get a positive PCR test result, you will have to self-isolate immediately. You should contact the health authorities for further instructions by calling 1450.
    If you test positive with a lateral flow test, you will be treated as a “suspected case” and must self-isolate immediately, following the instructions of the health authorities. A lateral flow test will usually be followed up with a PCR test. If the PCR test is negative, you can leave self-isolation.
    Options for self-isolation vary by region. In Vienna, a free hotel is available for visitors who test positive and have nowhere else to self-isolate.
    A doctor can provide a letter allowing you to leave Austria by private car.

  • Austria Due to the increased numbers of COVID-19 infection cases in Austria, the country’s authorities have announced that additional measures have been imposed in order to halt the further spread of the virus and protect public health.

    According to the new measures that were updated yesterday, November 8, Austria now has a new “2-G-Rule” in place, which refers to the vaccination and recovery requirements. This means that all persons, including travellers, are now required to present valid proof of vaccination or recovery in order to be permitted access to different indoor areas while in Austria.

    In addition, through this update, the same has emphasised that COVID-19 tests, both PCR and antigen, are no longer valid, meaning that only those who have been vaccinated or recovered from the virus are permitted to enter bars, restaurants, and accommodation, among others, SchengenVisaInfo.com reports.

    “In Austria, the 2-G-rule (“vaccinated, recovered”) is in effect in many areas. Access to accommodation, restaurants/bars, cable cars and cultural institutions, among others, is only possible with proof of full vaccination/past infection. A negative Covid-19 test is no longer sufficient,” the statement of Austria’s official travel portal reads.

    Regarding the “2-G-rule”, the authorities have explained that the measure does not apply to children under the age of 12. As for those between 12 and 18 years, a solution is in the making.

    Austria currently recognises all vaccination certificates that indicate that the holder has been fully immunised against the COVID-19 with the four European Medicines Agency (EMA) approved vaccines. In addition, three other vaccines approved by the World Health Organization are also accepted as valid proof of immunity for travel.

    The full list of vaccines that permit entry to Austria is as follows:

    Pfizer/BioNTech
    AstraZeneca
    Johnson & Johnson
    Moderna
    Covishield
    Sinopharm
    Sinovac
    While the first five listed vaccines apply for entry and the “2-G-rule”, those who have been vaccinated with Sinovac or Sinopharm are only permitted to enter Austria but not to access restaurants, theatres, museums, bars, and many more.

  • 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.

    • 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)

    • 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.
