    Covid rules during your stay in Austria

    Arrivals to Austria currently do NOT need "3-G" proof (vaccinated/recovered or tested). During your stay, the following rules apply:

    • FFP 2 masks are no longer mandatory in essential shops and when using public transport in all Austrian federal provinces except for Vienna.
    • In Vienna only, FFP 2 masks remain compulsory on public transport and in pharmacies. Children under the age of 6 are exempt, those from 6 to 13 can wear a regular mask while FFP2 masks are mandatory from the age of 14.
    • Since 1 August, you do no longer need to quarantine if you have a positive Covid test provided that an FFP2 mask is worn indoors in public areas. Entry bans are only in place for particularly sensitive areas such as hospitals and health spas. Outdoors, a mask is not necessary if a 2 meter safety distance can be maintained. If the infection is not confirmed by the PCR test, the regulation does not apply. The regulation is generally valid for a maximum of 10 days from the time the sample is taken.
