ENTRY REGULATIONS

Requirements for entering and staying in Austria from May, 16th 2022 onwards

We’ve got good news for you! From May, 16th onwards the 3G rule doesn’t apply anylonger when entering the country. Travellers from all over the world can travel to Austria without any special restrictions (vaccination, recovery or negative test) and without obligation to quarantine.

The return travel regulations from Austria to the countries of origin must still be observed!

 

HOTELS, RESTAURANTS, CULTURAL AND LEISURE FACILITIES

Currently there are no restrictions for the use of the mentioned facilities, no entry requirements (“green passport”) nor mask obligation.

The only places where the use of masks is still mandatory are all means of public transport (only in Vienna) and health care institutions all over the country:

Mandatory use of FFP2 masks

  • In all means of public transport and its buildings (train stations, airports etc.) in Vienna
  • In all medical practices

WHAT TO DO IN CASE YOU GET SICK

In case of feeling unwell during your stay in Austria, please, do not hesitate to get in contact with the hotel reception and the health advice hotline calling 1450. Especially trained health care workers will advise you what to do. Since August, 1st 2022 people infected with Covid-19 are not longer obliged to quarantine, but certain restrictions apply (in German “Verkehrsbeschränkung”). This means that a person infected with Covid-19 is obliged to wear an FFP2 mask whenever in contact with other people. These restrictions can be terminated earliest after 5 days presenting a PCR test (with negative result or CT above 30) or ends automatically after 10 days. 

The return travel regulations from Austria to the countries of origin must still be observed as well as the transport companies’ regulations (airlines, railway companies etc.).
