Entry Regulations for Patients to Austria
Essential travel (e.g. for medical treatment) to Austria is still possible.Strict entry rules are in effect, requiring all travellers to obtain pre-travel clearance. No need to self-quarantine if you are travelling for medical treatment.
Last update: …… March
Requirement 1: Pre-Travel Clearance – ALL Travellers
All travellers entering Austria – also patients – MUST register digitally in advance to obtain a so-called “pre-travel clearance” (PTC). At the border, they will need to show their PTC (either digitally or as a hard copy). All data collected will be deleted 28 days after the traveller has entered Austria.
Certain exemptions apply.
Find more information on the new pre-travel clearance here and find the form you need to fill in before travelling here.
Requirement 2: Negative COVID Test – Travellers from Risk Areas
People entering Austria from any country except Australia, Iceland, New Zealand, Norway, Singapore, South Korea, and the Vatican need to show a negative COVID test (PCR tests no older than 72 hours and antigen tests no older than 48 hours are admissible) in addition to committing to self-quarantine (see below). If you are unable to show a test, you are required to get one within 24 hours of entering Austria.
You can be tested at our premises in Vienna
