Austria opens up to travellers from UK

Austria has eased its entry restrictions, meaning that those visiting from the UK no longer need to self-isolate if they are fully vaccinated.

The UK was on a list of seven countries that are no longer considered ‘virus variant areas’, according to an announcement on the travel portal.

Visitors from the UK arriving in Austria must now show either proof of vaccination; recovery from Covid infection; or provide a negative test upon entry into the country.

Non-vaccinated British holidaymakers will still have to quarantine, other than children under 12 travelling with fully vaccinated adults.

Austria has been on the British green list since August 8, under the traffic light system for international travel, meaning holidaymakers returning to the UK do not have to self-isolate even if they haven’t been vaccinated.

The portal said Austrian hotels, restaurants and night clubs are open, as are museums, culture and leisure.

For almost all public indoor and some outdoor spaces, visitors will need to show either a negative Covid test or proof of vaccination/past infection.

Face masks are required on public transport and in other public spaces.
