Travelling within Austria

At check-in, please present a negative Covid-19 test, valid proof of vaccination, or proof of recovery from a prior infection. (In Austria, this is known as the ”3-G rule“. Please find more information below.)

Travelling from Germany

Entering Austria from Germany is possible without quarantine, if you have spent the last 10 days exclusively in Germany or Austria. To enter, you must produce a negative Covid-19 test, valid proof of vaccination, or proof of a prior infection. This means: if you are checked, you must provide a medical certificate, test result, vaccination certificate/proof of vaccination or an official/medical certificate of recovery in German or English. If you do not have any of these documents with you, you must register before entering the country and have a PCR or antigen test done within 24 hours of entering the country.

Mandatory registration for entering Austria

Before entering Austria, you must register in advance (“pre-travel clearance“). Registration confirmation must be presented electronically or in paper form.

What is the 3-G rule in Austria?

To enter Austria without quarantine, you need proof of one of the following:

You need a PCR test that is no older than 72 hours, or an antigen test no older than 48 hours. Children aged 12 and under do not need a test.

Please note! Self-tests (no older than 24 hours) are only valid when digitally recorded on one of the Austrian federal states’ self-test platforms. Self-tests from private providers and from other countries are not valid for entry.

Second vaccinations are valid for 270 days from the day the vaccination was administered. Vaccines that require only one inoculation are considered valid for 270 days from the 22nd day after inoculation. The same applies to people who have recovered from Covid-19 and have been inoculated once.


People who have recovered from Covid-19 are exempt from testing requirements for 180 days after the infection. Proof includes, for example, a doctor’s certificate or an official/medical certificate proving a past infection. Proof of antibodies is valid for 90 days from the test date.

Since 1 July, you can enter Austria with the EU’s digital Covid certificate (GreenPass). Proof of vaccination, negative test or recovery can also be provided with other recognised documents (vaccination certificate, vaccination pass/card, etc.).
