As of Dec. 19, 2020, a new regulation will apply to anyone who wants to enter Austria:

For travellers from Australia, Finland, Ireland, Iceland, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, South Korea, Uruguay and the Vatican there will be no entry restrictions, provided they have stayed continuously in these countries or in Austria for the past ten days.

For all others, a mandatory ten-day quarantine applies. From the 5th day on, one can clear oneself with a negative PCR or antigen test.

Upon entry, a quarantine form must be signed. It is strongly recommended to have this form already printed and filled out. A download form is not yet available, however all forms will soon be available on the website of the Ministry of Health.

There should also be special regulations, this concerns among other things:

  • humanitarian workers,
  • professional travelers (this includes 24-hour caregivers),
  • medical escorts and diplomats with legitimation cards.
  • In addition, they will not have to be quarantined if they can present a medical certificate confirming a negative PCR or antigen test upon entry and the test was taken no longer than 72 hours ago.

Who enters completely without restrictions
If a Corona test is first performed in Austria, quarantine can be ended as soon as a negative PCR or antigen test result is available, the new Health Minister’s regulation states.

Completely unrestricted travel is allowed for the following groups (provided they can credibly demonstrate the exemption reasons during an official inspection):

  • Persons entering the country in the interest of the Republic
  • Transit passengers
  • persons entering or re-entering the country within the framework of regular commuter traffic (at least once a month) for professional purposes, provided that they are not personal caregivers
  • persons entering or re-entering the country within the framework of regular commuter traffic (at least once a month) for family purposes or to visit their life partners
  • persons entering for the purpose of obtaining absolutely necessary medical services
  • persons crossing foreign territory (e.g. the Great German Corner)
    persons entering Mittelberg (Kleinwalsertal), Vomp-Hinterriss or Jungholz
  • Christmas is not an emergency reason
    However, entry is also permitted if the entry became necessary “due to unforeseeable, postponable reasons in the family circle that are particularly worthy of consideration, such as in particular serious cases of illness, deaths, funerals, births as well as the care of persons in need of support in emergencies”.

For entry in connection with plannable other important events in the family circle, such as weddings, baptisms, birthday celebrations or the non-regular visit of the life partner, the general quarantine rules according to the entry regulation apply. This also includes the Christmas celebration.
