Traveling to Austria during COVID

Austria is currently experiencing a wave of COVID-19 cases due to the omicron variant. The Department of State has  issued a  Level 4 Travel Advisory for Austria , advising U.S. citizens not to travel to Austria due to very high levels of COVID-19 cases.    U.S. Embassy Vienna has received numerous reports from U.S. citizen visitors who tested positive for COVID-19 just prior to their return flight to the United States, and subsequently ordered to quarantine in Austria  until released for travel by Austrian health officials (typically 10-14 days, but can be longer),  at their expense.

It is each traveler’s responsibility to weigh the risks to decide whether to travel during this pandemic. U.S. citizens who choose to travel internationally including to Austria should be aware that they may face unexpected challenges related to COVID-19 as they attempt to return to the United States or attempt to travel to a neighboring country.

U.S. citizens who choose to travel internationally should make contingency plans, as they may have to remain in a foreign country longer than originally planned, which will be at their own expense.    The Department of State recommends international travel insurance with coverage for COVID-related trip cancellation and medical benefits, including medical evacuation (medevac) coverage.    In general, Medicare and Medicaid do not cover overseas medical costs, and many U.S. health insurance policies only provide minimal coverage abroad.

U.S. Embassies and Consulates do not provide medical care, and generally do not provide financial assistance except in the  most extreme circumstances . U.S. Embassy Vienna cannot intervene in the quarantine, testing or boarding requirements of Austrian medical and immigration officials or airline personnel, and cannot give you permission to enter or exit Austria, or to leave quarantine early.    The penalties for violating Austria’s COVID regulations and quarantine mandates are severe, up to and including fines, detention and charges for endangering the public health.

What to do if you test positive in Austria

If you have COVID-19 symptoms or have already tested positive, dial 1450 from an Austrian phone (or +43-1-1450 from a U.S. phone). If you need assistance in English, stay on the line through the German recording, wait for a live person to answer, then request an English speaker. Your case officer will provide additional information and may schedule a mobile testing team to visit you at your hotel or home to conduct testing and contact-tracing. Please note that due to current wave of omicron variant COVID cases, wait times for phone and in-person assistance are longer than normal.

Persons who test positive for COVID-19 must quarantine in Austria, at your own expense, until cleared by medical authorities. Austrian mobile testing teams will generally visit you every 48-72 hours to conduct a new PCR test to determine your viral caseload and whether you are still contagious. A PCR test cycle threshold of 30 or above is generally considered “fit for travel” and to be released from quarantine. Please note that as a PCR test may show positive results for up to 3 months after infection, your airline may require a negative AntigenSchnell (rapid antigen) test, or a “fit to fly” doctor’s note. Click  here  for a list of English-speaking doctors in Austria.

If officially instructed, you are permitted to leave your quarantine location after 5 days for the sole purpose of obtaining a new COVID test. You must wear an FFP2 mask the entire time including outdoors during this task. Click  here  for a list of testing locations or ask your hotel front desk for recommendations.

Obtaining provisions whilst in quarantine: Many Austrian grocery stores, drug stores and apotheke (pharmacies) provide delivery service. Mjam and Lieferando are the two most popular food delivery apps. If you need additional help, click  here  for provincial COVID care & support hotlines.

Optionally, you may report your case to Consular Section Vienna for tracking purposes. Please send an e-mail to  [email protected]  with the names of all members of your group, dates of birth, your contact information in Austria, and date you entered quarantine.

Further resources and information

The Department of State’s Bureau of Consular Affairs provides country-specific information and advice regarding COVID-19 on each U.S. Embassy’s website.  We update these resources whenever we receive new information and encourage U.S. citizens to review Travel Advisories and U.S. Embassy COVID-19 information pages before travel. U.S. citizens should also enroll in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) for regular updates and follow @TravelGov on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

Before boarding a flight to the U.S., all air travelers aged two and older, regardless of nationality or vaccination status, are required to show documentation of a negative viral test result taken within one day of the flight’s departure to the United States, or documentation of recovery from COVID-19.    This includes U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents (LPRs).  A negative “AntigenSchnell” (rapid test) or a negative PCR test fulfills this requirement.

In addition, some countries have imposed other travel requirements. These may include quarantine on arrival, mandatory COVID-19 testing requirements, proof of vaccination, travel restrictions, and closed borders. Some countries have also imposed travel restrictions requiring mandatory quarantine for those testing positive on departure, which could delay a traveler’s ability to travel to another country. Foreign governments in any country may implement restrictions with little notice.

U.S. citizens planning to travel overseas or currently overseas and planning to return to the United States should also contact their airline for specific information about testing requirements for travelers. Airlines may adopt and modify their own specific policies to implement the CDC’s testing rule.

Safety and Security

Terrorism:  Some terrorist groups and those inspired by such organizations are intent on attacking U.S. citizens abroad. Terrorists are increasingly using less sophisticated methods of attack – including knives, firearms, and vehicles – against soft targets, such as:

  • High-profile public events (sporting contests, political rallies, demonstrations, holiday events, celebratory gatherings, etc.)
  • Hotels, clubs, and restaurants frequented by tourists
  • Places of worship
  • Shopping malls and markets
  • Public transportation systems (including subways, buses, trains, and scheduled commercial flights)

Crime:  Austria has one of the lowest crime rates in Europe and violent crime is rare. Crimes of opportunity involving theft of personal property do occur. These crimes frequently occur in tourist areas, including the plaza around St. Stephen’s Cathedral and the nearby pedestrian shopping areas in Vienna’s First District.

  • Beware of  pickpockets  on public transportation and in bus or train stations. Trains between Vienna and Budapest, Prague, or Rome are high-risk.
  • Do not leave bags unattended.
  • Do not carry your passport when sightseeing within Vienna; lock it in your hotel safe or other secure area unless needed for travel. Instead, carry a photocopy of your passport at all times along with a second form of ID such as a U.S. driver’s license.

Demonstrations  are common. They may take place in response to political or economic issues, on politically significant holidays, and during international events. 

  • Demonstrations can be unpredictable, avoid areas around protests and demonstrations. 
  • Past demonstrations have turned violent.
  • Check local media for updates and traffic advisories.

International Financial Scams:  See the  Department of State  and the  FBI  pages for information.

Victims of Crime:  Local authorities are responsible for investigating and prosecuting crime. You can call the police at 133. U.S. citizen victims of sexual assault are encouraged to contact the U.S. Embassy for assistance at+43-(0)1-313-390. Report crimes to the local police at  133  and contact the U.S. Embassy

See our webpage on  help for U.S. victims of crime overseas .

We may be able to help victims of crime with the following:

However, non- European Union residents are allowed medicines as part of their personal luggage, but only the quantity required for the period of time you’ll be in the country. Travelers may not receive medicine by mail from abroad while in Austria. If a particular medication is not available in Austria, an Austrian pharmacy may be able to order the medication prescribed by a local physician from a pharmacy in the United States.

We do not pay medical bills.  Be aware that U.S. Medicare/Medicaid does not apply overseas. Most hospitals and doctors overseas do not accept U.S. health insurance.

The U.S. Embassy maintains a list of doctors and hospitals on its  website . We do not endorse or recommend any specific medical provider or clinic.

We strongly recommend supplemental insurance to cover medical evacuation.

Always carry your prescription medication in original packaging, along with your doctor’s prescription. Check with the  Austrian Ministry for Health  to ensure the medication is legal in Austria.

  • Patients bear all costs for transfer to or between hospitals.

Medical Tourism and Elective Surgery

  • Medical tourism is a rapidly growing industry. People seeking health care overseas should understand that medical systems operate differently from those in the United States and are not subject to the same rules and regulations.

  • Visit the  U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention  website for information on Medical Tourism, the risks of medical tourism, and what you can do to prepare before traveling to Austria.

Please review the medication rules on the websites of the  Austrian Embassy  in Washington, D.C., and the  Austrian Health Ministry .
  • COVID-19 tests in Austria are widely available at local Apoteken (pharmacies), including rapid and PCR tests. U.S. citizens are responsible for paying for all costs upfront. Results are normally delivered by e-mail, test or you may request a physical copy from the lab.

Travel and Transportation

Road Conditions and Safety:   Road conditions in Austria are excellent. During the winter, roads in alpine areas may become dangerous due to snow, ice, or avalanches. Some mountain roads may be closed for extended periods. Snow tires or chains may be required in certain provinces or mountain towns. If you are renting a car in winter months and driving to a ski resort, check with your car rental company to ensure your vehicle is properly equipped.

Be alert when you drive through autobahn construction zones, particularly on the A-1 East/West Autobahn. Traffic information  and road conditions are broadcast on the  English-language channel, FM4 (frequency depends on location). Traffic information is posted on digital signs, and trackable in popular mobile apps. Emergency roadside help and information may be reached by dialing  123  or  120  for vehicle assistance and towing services (Austrian automobile clubs),  122  for the fire department,  133  for police, and  144  for ambulance. The European emergency line is  112 .

Traffic Laws : Please see Austria’s  travel webpage  for detailed information related to driving. Below are key laws to consider:

  • Penalties for  driving under the influence  are stricter than in many U.S. states.
  • Display an “ autobahn vignette ” highway-tax sticker  on the inside of the vehicle’s windshield. The fine for failing to display a valid sticker is EUR 120 ($150 USD), paid in cash “on the spot.”
  • The  maximum speed  limit is 130 km/hr (81mph) on the Austrian autobahns.
  • It is  against the law  to use a  hand-held cell  phone while driving.
  • It is  against the law  to turn  right on red .
  • It is  mandatory  for cars on Austrian motorways to pull over when an emergency vehicle is approaching. On two-lane roads or larger, vehicles pull over to either far left or far right to create an emergency corridor down the center.  
  • You could be issued a substantial fine  for not usin  winter tires  on your vehicle between November 1 and April 15, depending where you are driving. Your car  insurance is void  if you are in an accident, and your vehicle does not havewinter tires.
  • Read your rental contract closely.You may be  arrested, fined , and/or charged with attempted auto theft if you try to drive a rental car in countries listed as “prohibited” on the car rental contract.
  • A U.S. driver's license  alone is  not sufficient to drive in Austria.  A U.S. driver's license must be accompanied by an international driving permit or by an official translation of the U.S. driver's license, which can be obtained in the United States at AAA, or at one of the Austrian automobile clubs (ÖAMTC or ARBÖ). U.S. citizens who intend to take up residence in Austria must obtain an Austrian driver’s license after six months of arriving.

Public Transportation:  Austrian Federal Railways ( Österreichische Bundesbahnen ) offers train service to all major towns in Austria and major cities in Europe. There is also an extensive network of Österreichische Post  bus lines . All major cities have excellent public transportation systems. Click  here  for Vienna’s public transportation website.

See our  road safety page  for more information. Visit the website of Austria’s  national tourist office  and national authority responsible for road safety.

Aviation Safety Oversight:   The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has assessed the Government of Austria’s Civil Aviation Authority as compliant with International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) aviation safety standards for oversight of Austria’s air carrier operations.

Austrian Airlines Covid Rules

What is austrian  airlines doing to ensure a safe journey for its passengers.

As traveling in times of COVID-19 raises many questions, Austrian Airlines summarised the most important information for you from country-specific entry regulations and a guide for safe travel to hygiene and safety measures and flexible booking options:

  • Entry requirements.
  • Travel preparations.
  • Protective measures.
  • Flexible booking.

Entry Requirements

Currently, various countries have different entry requirements, and you need to review and observe the entry requirements for your destination , as well as the regulations at the departure and destination airports . If you have a connecting flight, you also need to check the entry regulations for the country of the transfer. Austrian Airlines offers information about entry requirements for Austria and the US, as well as country-specific entry requirements for all Austrian Airlines destinations.

To enter many countries, you currently need to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test. It is possible to have an antigen or PCR test carried out on departure or arrival at Vienna International Airport.

Travel Preparations

When you’re preparing for your next flight and want to travel as safely and carefree as possible, Austrian Airlines comes to your aid with: 

  • Travel inspiration . An interactive map helps you discover the Austrian Airlines destination that best matches your plans and offers, at the same time, brief information on travel restrictions and other requirements.
  • Safe travel guide . Austrian Airlines’ safe travel guide offers ample information, including a travel briefing and a step-by-step guideline from booking your flight to the arrival at your destination and information about the mask obligation . You protect yourself and your fellow passengers by wearing a mask. According to the Austrian Federal Government ordinance, FFP2 masks are compulsory during your journey with Austrian Airlines . The mask obligation applies onboard Austrian Airlines flights from boarding until leaving the aircraft. Masks are also compulsory at all Austrian airports in the entire enclosed area. Children under 6 are exempt from the mask requirement. If you cannot wear a mask for health reasons, you must have a COVID-19 negative PCR test and a current medical certificate using the Austrian Airlines mask exemption form.
  • Digital document check . For many flights, Austrian Airlines offers online document checks. You can upload online your corona-related documents, such as your Covid-19 test results, vaccination certificate, or entry form, and the Health Entry Support Centre will check whether everything is complete and inform you accordingly. Participation in the digital document check is voluntary but offers the benefits of knowing with certainty that you are complying with entry requirements before even arriving at the airport, saving time at the airport, and starting your journey feeling relaxed.

Protective Measures

Nothing being more important than the well-being and safety of passengers and employees, Austrian Airlines took protective measures since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic:

  • At Vienna Airport, cleaning activities are being stepped up , and plexiglass panes (so-called “sneeze guards”) are installed at check-in , boarding, and information counters . Floor markings ensure that the minimum distance is kept, and hand disinfection dispensers are available to passengers along the way to the aircraft.
  • Boarding takes place in smaller groups , allowing you to board the aircraft even faster and with the necessary distance. The contactless boarding available at Vienna Airport through Quick Boarding Gates allows for a scanner to read the boarding pass, and thus contact with a  staff member is not necessary.
  • The frequency and intensity of cabin cleaning have been increased . In addition to the standard cleaning after every flight, there is also more frequent intensive cleaning of tables, seat belts, armrests, toilets, and door handles .
  • Special filters ensure constant cleaning of the air on board during the flight and supply a complete exchange of fresh air approximately every three minutes . The standard of the air filters is equivalent to that in clinical operating theatres. Plus, airflow in the cabin takes place from top to bottom. The resulting excellent air quality, in combination with an FFP2 mask, offers so much protection that it is not essential to maintain minimum distance to passengers in neighboring seats.
  • The in-flight service has been adapted and simplified to minimize contact between people on board.

  • Passports, travel and living abroad
  • Travel abroad
  • Foreign travel advice

Entry requirements

This advice reflects the UK government’s understanding of current rules for people travelling on a full ‘British citizen’ passport from the UK, for the most common types of travel.

The authorities in Austria set and enforce entry rules. If you’re not sure how these requirements apply to you, contact the Austrian Embassy in the UK .

COVID-19 rules

There are no COVID-19 testing or vaccination requirements for travellers entering Austria.

Passport validity requirements

To travel to Austria, you must follow the  Schengen area passport requirements .

 To enter Austria (and all Schengen countries) your passport must:

  • have a ‘date of issue’ less than 10 years before the date you arrive. Passports issued after 1 October 2018 are now valid for only 10 years, but for passports issued before 1 October 2018, extra months may have been added if you renewed a passport early
  • have an ‘expiry date’ at least 3 months after the day you plan to leave

Check with your travel provider that your passport and other travel documents meet  requirements Renew your passport if you need to .

You will be denied entry if you do not have a valid travel document or try to use a passport that has been reported lost or stolen.

Visa requirements

You can travel to countries in the Schengen area (including Austria) for up to 90 days in any 180-day period without a visa. This applies if you travel:

  • as a tourist
  • to visit family or friends
  • to attend business meetings, cultural or sports events
  • for short-term studies or training

If you are travelling to Austria and other Schengen countries without a visa, make sure your whole visit is within the 90-day limit. Visits to Schengen countries within the previous 180 days before you travel count towards your 90 days.

To stay longer (to work or study, for business travel or for other reasons), you must meet the Austrian government’s entry requirements. Check which visa or work permit you may need with the Austrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs or Austrian Embassy in London for visa requirements .

If you stay in Austria with a residence permit or long-stay visa, this does not count towards your 90-day visa-free limit.

Make sure you get your passport stamped.

If you’re a visitor, your passport must be stamped when you enter or leave the Schengen area (which includes Austria). Border guards will use passport stamps to check you have not  overstayed the 90-day visa-free limit for stays in the Schengen area. If your passport was not stamped, border guards will presume you have overstayed the visa-free limit.

If your passport is missing a stamp, show evidence of when and where you entered or left the Schengen area (for example, boarding passes or tickets) and ask the border guards to add the date and location in your passport.

Read about passport stamping if you live in Austria .

At Austrian border control, you may need to show:

proof of your accommodation, such as hotel booking confirmation or proof of address if visiting your second home

proof of insurance for your trip – check FCDO’s travel insurance guidance

  • a return or onward ticket
  • proof that you have enough money for your stay

Vaccination requirements (other than COVID-19)

At least 8 weeks before your trip, check the vaccinations and certificates you need on TravelHealthPro’s Austria guide .

Customs rules

There are strict rules about goods that can be brought into and taken out of Austria . You must declare anything that may be prohibited or subject to tax or duty.

Taking food into Austria

You cannot take meat, milk or products containing them into EU countries . There are some exceptions such as powdered baby milk, baby food and special foods or pet feed required for medical reasons.

Unaccompanied minors.

For most children their time on board the aircraft is a real adventure. We inform you about the special regulations so that you can send your child on their way without any worry.

Assistance service for unaccompanied children once more available on direct connections

We can now accept bookings for unaccompanied children on our direct connections. If you already have a confirmed direct flight incl. assistance service for your child, it continues to be valid.  

An assistance service is unfortunately not yet available for connecting flights.  If you already have a confirmed connecting connection incl. assistance service for your child, please contact our Service Center immediately.

Your child is in safe hands with us

There are many reasons why a child has to fly unaccompanied – but there is no reason for you to worry. Our unaccompanied minors service will look after your child during the trip. Assistance is compulsory for children between five and eleven years old, but can also be booked for children up to the age of 17. This way you can be sure that your child will experience special care even in the event of disruptions to the flight, for example if the connecting flights are cancelled.

With Austrian your child will be looked after throughout. He or she will be received at the airport, taken to the aircraft and handed over to the crew. During the flight your child will be received by our staff and handed over to the specified person collecting them at the arrival airport. In the event of any unforeseen changes we guarantee that they will be looked after and the contact people notified immediately.

This is how you can send your child off on journeys unaccompanied

Find out about the entry regulations at your destination country in good time before departure. These regulations may vary from country to country. These documents must be given to the child to carry with them.

austrian airlines travel requirements

Booking a flight

The unaccompanied minors service can only be booked by telephone. Specify the adults who will be handing over and collecting your child. The costs of the ticket and service are charged together and the service applies for each leg of the journey. Assistance applies to connected bookings in order to ensure time for connections.

austrian airlines travel requirements

Completing the form

Download the special service form and bring four signed copies with you to the airport for each leg of the flight. For example, if you book a flight from Vienna to Paris and return, you will require a total of eight printed copies.

austrian airlines travel requirements

Handing over your child

Come direct to the check-in desk with the documents, or in Vienna direct to the Special Assistance desk in Terminal 3. There your child will be given a shoulder bag to keep the special service forms and the official documents safe. Please bring the photographic ID of the contact person with you for checking. If you wish, you can accompany your child to the gate – our ground staff will do that for you on request. The accompanying person must remain at the airport until the aircraft takes off. The person collecting your child must be able to identify themselves at the destination airport.

In addition to the airfare an assistance fee is charged for the unaccompanied minor service for children travelling alone for each child and each leg of the journey. Different tariffs may apply on other airlines.

Tips for the well-being of your child

With the right preparation your child will be ready for their adventure:

  • Think about all the documents and photographic IDs for the people handing over and collecting them.
  • Create anticipation, for example by choosing the seat or booking the children’s menu together.
  • Get tips for your journey: Think about the temperate differences between the departure airport and the air-conditioned cabin.
  • Small children may be happier if they have a cuddly toy to take with them.
  • Your child should start their journey fully rested.
  • Talk to your child about the journey and what will happen so that he or she is prepared for all the steps.
