Austria Exempts Only Those With Booster Shots From Test Requirement
Since December 20, all travellers eligible to enter Austria are obliged to present negative results of a PCR test taken pre-departure. Exempt are only those who have received a COVID-19 booster shot.
“New stricter entry measures came in effect on December 20. To enter Austria, the “2-G” rule (proof of vaccination/recovery) is currently in place. In addition, you need a negative PCR test OR proof of a booster jab,” the official Austrian travel website explains.
The PCR test should be taken within 48 hours before reaching Austria. Children under the age of 12 are exempt from the requirement, as well as teenagers who are eligible for the Holiday Ninja Pass.
