It is currently still possible to travel to Austria and go on holiday here. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs issues a yellow travel advice for Austria.
Currently, a number of measures are still in force in Austria:
- People who are fully vaccinated no longer need to do a PCR test. If you only have one vaccination, you are obliged to carry a negative PCR test before entering accommodations, restaurants, etc.
- After a stay in Austria, you do not need to show a negative PCR test result before returning to the Netherlands. You must have a vaccination certificate to prove this.
- People who have not yet been vaccinated are allowed to travel to Austria. You must have a negative PCR test result of no more than 48 hours of age.
- Self-tests should not be older than 24 hours.
- From September 15, there will be a mouth cap obligation with an FFP-2 mask. When entering shops, pharmacies and public transport you are required to wear an FFP-2 mask.
- There is no longer a quarantine obligation in Austria.
- When you return home from Austria, you do not have to go into quarantine.
- A negative PCR test (not older than 48 hours and does not apply to people who are fully vaccinated) is mandatory when entering accommodations, restaurants, etc.
A PCR test in Austria is free for tourists. At accommodations and catering there is the possibility to do a self-test.
To enter Austria, the following so-called 3-G conditions apply to Dutch guests. This applies from the age of 12 years and older:
You must have a negative PCR test not older than 48 hours with an English/German travel certificate. Please note that you will not receive such a certificate from the GGD.

You must have been vaccinated at least 22 days ago with at least your first vaccine with an EMA approved vaccine (Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna, Janssen or AstraZeneca). From August 15, you must be fully vaccinated to no longer have to do a PCR test.
