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.
  • Further information and details on the current COVID-19 entry regulations and exemptions are also available here
