Since Easter, Austria has managed mainly without Corona restrictions. But for those entering the country, the rules are strict. There is also the threat of quarantine.
Corona measures in Austria are as reasonable as abolished – apart from the FFP2 obligation in the vital indoor setting and healthcare. Around Easter, the last G-rules fell in the catering industry and at events. Surprisingly for many at the time, the federal capital also largely followed the rules because Vienna was always known for stricter rules until now.
The Ministry of Health says that in Austria, 3-G rules – i.e., admission regulations according to which one must either be vaccinated, recovered, or tested – still apply in isolated cases. This is the case in vulnerable settings, for example.
This is also currently still the case when entering Austria. “The entry rules are continuously evaluated and, if necessary, adapted if the epidemiological situation or any virus variants make this necessary. Any new rules will, of course, be communicated promptly.” In concrete terms, this means that the green passport will continue to be valid in Austria. Consequently, a tightening is also not excluded.
But what happens if someone cannot provide any of the three G-proofs upon entry? “Entry into Austria is only possible with a valid vaccination, convalescence, test certificate, or a medical certificate,” the ministry says.
These documents must be issued in German or English. If none of these proofs is available, registration for the Pre-Travel Clearance is to be accomplished before the entry. Furthermore, a ten-day quarantine has to be started immediately. The quarantine is considered to be finished as soon as a negative test result is available. Persons must be tested at least to be able to enter Austria.
