COVID protective measures

NEW "2-G-rule": The following measures are in effect from 8 November:

Austria already proved in the summer that responsible tourism is possible during the pandemic. As a responsible host country, Austria is now taking all the necessary measures in winter too. The following provisions currently apply to protection against corona:

  • For hotels, restaurants, bars, nightclubs, leisure centres, gyms, cultural institutions (cinemas, theatres etc.), ski lifts and body-related services (such as hairdressers) proof of vaccination/recovery is mandatory (children under the age of 12 are exempt).
  • For events with 25 people or more proof of vaccination/recovery is mandatory (children under the age of 12 are exempt).
  • COVID tests (both PCR and antigen) are no longer valid as "entry tests".
  • FFP2 masks are required on public transport, in cable cars and in all retail businesses and museums.
  • 2-dose-vaccinations are valid for 9 months only after the second dose from 6 December (previously: 12 months)
  • Up until 5 December, proof of the first dose plus a negative PCR test are valid for hospitality businesses, body-related services and events.
  • Children under 12 years are currently exempt from entry rules, for minors between 12 and 18 years, a solution is being worked on.
