Austria-entry: Quarantine not a must
Just in time for the long weekends because of the Catholic feasts – Pentecost Sunday and on the first week of June, the Corpus Christi, traveling is getting easier. Like Austria, some European countries have relaxed their entry restrictions. However, the regulations still vary widely. While some countries still do not allow tourist entries or impose quarantine, you can enter many countries with a negative Coronatest without any problems. Vaccinated and recovered people have advantages only in some places.

In Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Estonia, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Kosovo, Lithuania, Montenegro, Poland, Romania, and the Portuguese Azores, fully vaccinated persons with appropriate proof are exempt from the applicable requirements. In the remaining countries, there are still no benefits for vaccinated individuals. Testing rules also vary from country to country. In some countries, there is also an obligation to register before entering the country, similar to Austria.

Those who are travelling back to Austria will surely experience significant relaxation. Since Wednesday, tested, vaccinated and recovered can enter from most European countries now quarantine-free. A quarantine obligation applies only to the entry from the EU countries Croatia, Lithuania, Netherlands, Sweden and Cyprus, as well as from Great Britain, Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, Turkey, Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, Northern Macedonia and Albania. However, vaccinated and recovered persons are exempt from this rule
