The measures implemented by the Austrian Federal Government and the discipline of the Austrian people have taken effect. The number of new infections in Austria is continuing to decrease and the strict measures for the containment of the coronavirus can therefore be loosened in a step by step process.
Austria is currently in a phase of gradual, secure and monitored re-opening. The gastronomy sector and museums opened on Friday, May 15th, accommodation facilities and recreational operations will follow on May 29th.
The next step will be allowing cross-border travel to neighbouring countries with comparable good results as Austria. The opening of the border to Germany has already been announced for June 15th.

The reopening of the Austria German land border within a month is great news for Europe travel–and more border openings between Austria, Germany, France, Switzerland and others are to come.

On Friday, May 15, 2020 Slovenia has lifted its coronavirus entry restrictions for EU citizens. This means that in future Austrians will also be able to enter the country again without any conditions. All borders with neighbouring countries, including Italy, Hungary and Croatia, will be opened. As a result, there is practically nothing to prevent a summer holiday on the Croatian Adriatic.

Before lifting the restrictions on May 15, Slovenia imposed a seven-day home quarantine obligation on all immigrants from EU countries. In the future, they will only receive an information sheet with corona protection measures. A further condition for entry is that they have not been outside the EU for the previous 14 days. Anyone claiming to have corona symptoms on entry will continue to be refused entry. Third-country nationals may enter the country, but a 14-day home quarantine obligation applies.

Entry restrictions until the end of May in Austria

In Austria, entry restrictions from neighbouring countries continue to apply until the end of May. They provide for home quarantine on entry. Since Friday, however, loosening has been in force at the borders with Germany, where only spot checks are carried out. As of June 15, the restrictions with Germany and Switzerland are to be completely lifted. Austria had announced similar steps with all other neighbouring countries except Italy.
