    Travel to Austria is possible for touristic purposes.

    Since 16 May, proof of vaccination/recovery or a test are no longer needed.

    Last update: 17 May

    Entering Austria is now possible for Indian nationals

    A few European countries (e.g.: Spain and Switzerland) have started to issue Schengen tourist visas for Indian nationals travelling from India. Therefore Indian nationals are now able to travel to Austria for holidays after staying 10 days in any safe countries or being double vaccinated with Covishield. The Indian vaccine Covishield is accepted to enter Austria and quarantine is no longer required. Please find below detailed information on travel requirements for travellers entering Austria from any safe country (please check below list of countries without quarantine requirement). Please be sure to check each country's travel warnings in addition to Austrian regulations.

    Update: "3-G" rule lifted on 16 May

    The so-called "3-G" rule (vaccinated/recovered or tested) has been lifted on Monday, 16 May, for arrivals from all countries.

    When do you need a Pre-Travel-Clearance?

    Currently, no Pre-Travel-Clearance is required when entering Austria.

    PLEASE NOTE: The Austrian National Tourist Office is not an authority and cannot provide any legally binding information.
