“Pre-travel clearance” for Austria no longer necessary for countries with stable infection situation

Traveling to Austria is getting easier.
Starting Thursday, many travelers to Austria will no longer have to submit the “pre-travel clearance.” For travelers from states with a stable infection situation, a 3G certificate will suffice.

As of Thursday, it will no longer be necessary for people with proof of 3G to fill out a “pre-travel clearance” when entering Austria from most EU countries. The health ministry told APA on Wednesday. Travel registration for entry from countries with a stable infection situation (“Annex A”) must now only take place if no 3G proof can be provided; proof must be submitted within 24 hours.

Tested, vaccinated or recovered is sufficient.
This means that persons who do not take a Corona test until after they have entered Austria must continue to register in advance online at https://entry.ptc.gv.at/. The regulation for entry from risk countries (“Annex B1”) or virus variant areas (“Annex B2”) remains unchanged. Countries with a low incidence of infection (“Annex A”) currently include popular vacation destinations such as Greece, Italy and Spain.

“I am pleased that the good epidemiological situation together with more vaccinations allows us to provide further relief for people,” said Health Minister Wolfgang Mückstein (Greens). He continued to appeal to all people to get vaccinated and to follow the precautions, even on vacation.
