Will holidays in Austria also be allowed again?

A vacation in Austria has been out of the question for months: The extensive entry and quarantine rules as well as the closure of accommodation establishments for tourist purposes thwarted the bill.

Corona pandemic: Austria is planning extensive openings in May

The

opening steps on May 19

are based on

strict security concepts

, which are primarily expressed in the form of access tests for restaurants, hotels, culture and sports.

“Access tests” include self-tests with a digital solution (maximum 24 hours old), antigen tests (maximum 48 hours old) and PCR tests (maximum 72 hours old).

People who were infected with the coronavirus are exempt from the obligation to test six months after recovery.

As soon as the legal basis for this has been created, vaccinated persons will also be exempted from the obligation to test.

This should apply for one year from day 22 after the first vaccination.

the quarantine obligation only applies to high-risk areas

.

,

hotels

will also

be allowed to resume operations.

There should be an FFP2 mask requirement in general areas as well as a registration requirement.
