The Austrian government has decided to make vaccination compulsory for February.

You can find out here whether this also applies to holidaymakers.

Austria* wants to introduce

general compulsory vaccination

from the beginning of February . However, a

transitional period

is to apply until March 15

to give the unvaccinated the opportunity to vaccinate in good time, as reported by the

Stuttgarter Nachrichten

. Anyone who then gets into a police check and cannot present proof of vaccination can

expect a

fine of up to 600 euros

. The fine will be taken back if the person concerned still gets vaccinated within two weeks of the check, like

Deutsche Welle

reported.

If you object to the fine, a fine of up to 3,600 euros can then be imposed in court proceedings.

For unvaccinated tourists who like to go on vacation in Austria, the question arises: Does the obligation to vaccinate also apply to us?

Vaccination obligation in Austria: These corona rules currently apply to tourists

Currently, tourists in Austria

are not directly affected by compulsory vaccination

.

Entry is currently restricted to

vaccinated and recovered (2G)

anyway .

Those who are not boosted must also submit a negative PCR test.

The corresponding entry regulation is still in force until February 28, 2022 - so it expires during the transition period.

What comes after that is not yet known.

Currently, only children under the age of 12 and school-age children who are not vaccinated or have recovered but can present a Ninja Pass (regular testing) are exempt from the obligation to provide proof.

In the country itself, people who are neither vaccinated nor recovered have a hard time: the 2G rule has been in force in large parts of public life since January 11th.

The proof must be presented when entering a shop at the latest at the checkout.

There is an exception for pregnant women with a PCR test, as well as for shops providing basic services - for example supermarkets or pharmacies.

However, only people with 2G proof have access to hotels, restaurants, cultural events or cable cars.
