Austria is relaxing entry requirements for Great Britain, Russia, South Africa, India, Nepal, Botswana and Zambia. These countries will no longer be considered virus variant areas as of Sunday, according to an amendment to the entry regulation published yesterday. The quarantine requirement will no longer apply to those entering the country, provided they are fully vaccinated. In other respects, too, proof of vaccination will no longer be valid upon entry unless fully immunized, as of Wednesday.

The Ministry of Health argues for the deletion of these countries from the list of virus variant areas with the fact that the delta variant is meanwhile also the dominant one in Austria as well as in most European states. As of Sunday, the “other states” regulations in the entry regulation apply to these states.

This means that a “3-G proof” must be presented upon entry as well as a registration and quarantine obligation. Fully vaccinated persons are exempt from quarantine. Children and adolescents under the age of 18 are subject to the quarantine requirements of the adults accompanying them, the Ministry of Health said.

Remaining on the list of virus variant areas are Brazil, Eswatini, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Zimbabwe and Uruguay.

Facilitation for entry from the Netherlands
There are also facilitations for the entry from the Netherlands. For the entry – also by air – the same rules apply again as for the other states and areas with low epidemiological risk. Since August 3, travelers and vacationers from the Netherlands, as well as those from Spain and Cyprus, had been required to present a negative PCR test or proof of full vaccination upon arrival at Austrian airports. For Spain and Cyprus, the additional requirements remain in place.

For all people entering Austria, as of Wednesday, proof of vaccination is only valid if the person in question has been fully vaccinated. Previously, a first vaccination was also sufficient if it was at least 21 days and no more than 90 days ago.
