Travelers who are required to follow this policy must register their details on the online portal, before they start their trip.
The completed form must then be shown when it is requested by officials.
The information provided by each passenger helps the Austrian government to manage and monitor the movement of travelers coming from areas deemed as unsafe, as well as those who do not meet COVID-19 travel requirements.
At present, passengers from all countries must show proof of one of the following:
- Full vaccination
- Certificate of recovery
Passengers arriving from any area, that do not meet one of these requirements, must complete the Austria Pre-Travel Clearance.
Those coming from one of the safe countries are also required to take a PCR test within 24 hours of arrival, if they did not show one when entering.
Visitors entering Austria from a region that is not on the list of safe countries, or who have been in an unsafe country within the last 10 days, must also show a negative COVID-19 PCR test on arrival and self-isolate for 10 days.
The 10-day quarantine can be reduced to 5 days by taking another test to end it early.
These travel health restrictions help Austria’s health authorities to reduce the risk of positive COVID-19 cases entering the country.
