Austria lifted all entry rules imposed because of the Corona pandemic. As of following Monday, no 3G proof will be required when entering Austria. Entry is thus possible again from all countries without any conditions. This is according to the new entry regulation of the Ministry of Health published on Friday evening. The current epidemiological situation justified the lifting.
The previous rules for virus variant territories officially remain in place, but no country is currently on the so-called virus variant territories list. Should a new virus variant emerge, this could quickly reimpose testing, registration, and quarantine requirements for certain countries. The latest entry regulation goes into effect the following Monday.
The travel industry, which had been calling for lifting entry restrictions for weeks, reacted with delight. “With this – late but – a massive competitive disadvantage compared to other European destinations could be eliminated,” explained the chairman of the WKÖ trade association of travel agencies, Gregor Kadanka, in a statement on Friday evening. The end of the 3-G rule is good news for incoming tourism and Austrians vacationing abroad.
Until now, the 3G obligation still applied when entering the country. Incoming tourists had to prove that they had been vaccinated, recovered, or tested.
