COVID-19 Entry requirements

UPDATE: Please check the website of the Federal Ministry Republic of Austria of Social Affairs for detailed entry regulations.

When entering Austria from abroad, you are generally obliged to go into quarantine for 10 days after entering the country, provided that you have stayed in a country not mentioned here during the previous 10 days before:

Australia, Finland, Greece, Iceland, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, Singapore, South Korea, Vatican

On the 5th day of quarantine at the earliest, the day of the arrival marking "day zero", a molecular biological or antigen test for COVID-19 can be conducted. If the result is negative, the quarantine can be terminated early.

If you are booked into a shared apartment or in a double room, a quarantine might be problematic and may involve extra costs. Please take care of a suitable accommodation in a timely manner. Depending on availability we can offer you another room/residence for the duration of the quarantine.

If you need help during your quarantine, the following websites may assist you:

The page of the city of Vienna links to service points in several languages.
The private initiative "Corona Nachbarschaftshilfe in Österreich" is a good source to offer or find regional help. (only available in German!)
"Team Österreich" matches offers of help. (only available in German!)

In order to collect the necessary information from people entering Austria from countries with an increased risk of infection, people entering Austria are obligated to submit key information, in order to facilitate contact tracing.

This includes the address of the stay or quarantine in Austria, the means of transport used for entry (optional), as well as those countries in which the entering person has stayed in the last 10 days.

As of January 15, 2021 an electronic registration is mandatory when entering Austria. (Pre-Travel-Clearance)

You can fill out the single entry form here.

Once this information is submitted via the Pre-Travel Clearance form, a confirmation document can be downloaded, and is sent to your stated email address. This confirmation must be presented to authorities upon request, and enables the verification of the correct disclosure of data.
The QR-code serves the purpose of verification. The recorded data will be transmitted to the administrative authority responsible for the district of residence and/or quarantine.
The data will be stored for 28 days, starting at the date of entry.
