Entry requirements & Getting here safely

Before you set off on your well-deserved holiday, read up on the current coronavirus situation in Austria and Tirol:

Accommodations, food service and catering

In principle, the general rule applies

  • Stage 1: Guests must show a valid negative test result, proof of vaccination or proof of recovery. Antigen tests are valid for 24 hours.
  • From level 2: Antigen tests with self-collection ("living room tests") are no longer permitted as proof of entry.
  • If stage 3 comes into force, antigen tests (such as test lanes or pharmacies) will also no longer be valid as proof of entry. Then only a valid negative PCR test result, proof of vaccination or proof of recovery will be valid as proof of entry.

Cable cars 

  • Level 1 to 3: Visitors to cable car operations are required to wear an FFP2 mask.
  • From the start of the season (October), introduction of the 3G rule: 3G proof is to be checked when tickets are sold. A practicable implementation for operators and visitors is currently being worked on (for example, coupling the online sale of tickets for an automated check).
  • Visitors must always carry the valid 3G certificate and show it during random checks.
  • The obligation to wear an FFP2 mask remains.

Public transport

  • FFP2-masks protection mandatory (also at the bus stops)
  • All buses are regularly aired out and disinfected

Après-ski & night gastronomy

The same rules generally apply for après-ski as for night catering.

  • Level 1: Guests must show a valid negative PCR test result, proof of vaccination or evidence of recovery. Antibody proof or antigen tests are not sufficient.
  • From level 2: For night catering establishments and après-ski, the 2G rule (vaccinated and recovered - no tests as proof) is introduced.
  • Regulation for unvaccinated employees: the mandatory wearing of an FFP2 mask and regular testing utilizing a PCR test - but at least three times a week.

 

Advent and Christmas Markets

  • Stage 1: For Advent and Christmas markets as occasional markets (not only pure commodity markets), the following regulations have applied since 15 September 2021:
     
    • Admission with 3G proof: Valid negative test result, proof of vaccination or evidence of recovery. Antigen tests are valid for 24 hours. Information on practicable implementation for operators and visitors will follow.
    • From an expected number of visitors of more than 500 persons, every occasional market has to obtain a permit from the locally competent district administrative authority.
  • From stage 2: Antigen tests with self-acceptance ("living room tests") are no longer permitted as proof of entry.
  • Should stage 3 occur: Antigen tests are no longer valid as proof of entry (entry with correct negative PCR test result, proof of vaccination or evidence of recovery).
