Covid-19: Current situation and measures

Austria - Tirol - Wilder Kaiser region

Restaurants, hotels and other accommodation providers are allowed to open again with certain restrictions. To enter, guests must provide a negative test or proof that they have been vaccinated or recovered from a proven Covid-19 infection.

As these rules come into force, entry restrictions to Austria are relaxed. Visitors arriving from a country with low infection rates (as per the European coronavirus traffic light system) no longer need to quarantine upon entry. Instead, they must also provide a negative test or proof that they have been vaccinated or recovered from a proven Covid-19 infection.

The obligation to register before entering Austria has been relaxed: only those entering Austria from a high-incidence or virus variant area must complete a pre-travel clearance form first.
