General information on entry:
Decisive for whether or under which conditions entry to Austria is possible is the measure whether your home town/country is currently classified by Austria as a risk area. Austria bases its entry rules on the Corona traffic light of the EU health agency ECDC. This determines, for example, whether I have to go into quarantine in the vacation country after entering. From countries that are colored green or orange on the ECDC map, entry is to be possible without any requirements from May 19.
Your safety and health is of great concern to us. For this reason, you will find here all the latest information and rules of conduct for accommodation, gastronomy, ski areas, mobility and on-site testing. Read the most important measures at a glance below.
