Corona update Austria

It is currently still possible to travel to Austria and go on holiday here. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs issues a yellow travel advice for Austria.

 Currently, a number of measures are still in force in Austria: 

  • People who are fully vaccinated no longer need to do a PCR test. If you only have one vaccination, you are obliged to carry a negative PCR test before entering accommodations, restaurants, etc.
  • After a stay in Austria, you do not need to show a negative PCR test result before returning to the Netherlands. You must have a vaccination certificate to prove this.
  • People who have not yet been vaccinated are allowed to travel to Austria. You must have a negative PCR test result of no more than 48 hours of age.
  • Self-tests should not be older than 24 hours.
  • From September 15, there will be a mouth cap obligation with an FFP-2 mask. When entering shops, pharmacies and public transport you are required to wear an FFP-2 mask.
  • There is no longer a quarantine obligation in Austria.
  • When you return home from Austria, you do not have to go into quarantine.
  • A negative PCR test (not older than 48 hours and does not apply to people who are fully vaccinated) is mandatory when entering accommodations, restaurants, etc.

A PCR test in Austria is free for tourists. At accommodations and catering there is the possibility to do a self-test.
