Entry & Return

NEW: Virus variant areas United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Denmark, Norway


New rules for everyone arriving from the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Denmark and Norway. These countries will be classified as a virus variant region from 25 December in Austria. This means:

  • People who are fully vaccinated (double jabbed) AND have received the 3rd booster jab can enter Austria with a negative PCR test (valid 48 hours). Children under the age of 12 are exempt (see below) and teenagers eligible for the Holiday Ninja Pass will be able to enter with a negative PCR test (valid 48 hours).
  • Important additional information: Everyone else travelling from the UK, the Netherlands, Denmark and Norway needs to quarantine for 10 days upon arrival if they have not been fully vaccinated (2 x jabs) and had a third booster.



Everyone else entering Austria


Stricter entry regulations have been in force since 20.12.2021; a 2-G plus certificate is required for entry.


Vaccinated and recovered persons additionally need a PCR test – or proof of booster vaccination. This applies to entry from all countries except the virus variant areas (Annex 1). Persons without a PCR test or booster vaccination are subject to registration (pre-travel clearance) and they must observe immediate quarantine until a negative PCR test result is presented.
