Interior Minister Nehammer wants to use hundreds of additional officers to control the tightened entry regulations at Christmas.

To curb the further spread of COVID-19 in Austria, the Federal Council approved a new Health Ministry regulation on December 17, 2020, on entry into Austria in connection with the containment of SARS-CoV-2. “As in previous months, Austria’s police continue to provide support to the health authorities at their request during health-related entry controls,” said Interior Minister Karl Nehammer (ÖVP).

In order to have sufficient executive officers available over the Christmas holidays, 218 officers completed their supplementary training for the aliens and border police sector at the St. Pölten training center on December 17. These officers will be deployed primarily for border operations. “This ensures that security in Austria is also guaranteed at the highest level over the Christmas holidays,” Nehammer continued.

In addition, officers of the border police unit Puma are also available. Should these also not be sufficient, the provincial police directorates can also resort to district forces. The Ministry of the Interior promises that this will not affect basic security services.
