Updated travel restrictions for austria from 10th February

Travellers from Singapore are exempt from the testing and quarantine requirements when entering Austria.

From Wednesday, 10th February 2021, an amendment to the entry regulations of the Austrian Ministry of Health will come into force.

As a result, the following rules will come into effect during the night from Tuesday to Wednesday:

  • As of 10th February, travellers from regions for which a travel warning due to the COVID-19 pandemic is in effect must carry a health certificate that is no more than 72 hours old and confirms a negative COVID-19 test (antigen or PCR) when entering Austria. A test certificate issued in Austria is equivalent to a medical certificate. If the medical certificate or the test result cannot be presented, an antigen or PCR test must be carried out within 24 hours of entry.
  • Arriving travellers must observe a 10-day home quarantine, commencing upon entry into Austria. The quarantine can be ended early if a PCR or antigen test is carried out from the fifth day after entry and the test result is negative (the day of entry is considered day 0).
  • Travellers from the following countries are exempt from the testing and quarantine requirements:  Australia, Finland, Greece, Iceland, New Zealand, Norway, Singapore, South Korea and the Vatican.
  • Before travelling to Austria, travellers must complete the mandatory electronic registration (Pre-Travel Clearance, PTC).  The electronic registration form is available here in German and English.
