2G in public areas, such as gastronomy, accommodation, leisure and sports, etc.

After the end of the lockdown, the 2-G rule ("vaccinated or recovered") applies in Austria, as well as an FFP2 mask obligation in many areas. The detailed regulations:

  • 2-G ("vaccinated or recovered") applies in accommodation establishments, restaurant establishments, leisure and sports facilities, cultural facilities, cable cars, at advent markets or when using services close to the body (e.g. hairdresser).
  • Corona tests of any kind (PCR, antigen and antibody tests) are not permitted as proof of entry.
  • The FFP2 mask obligation applies to all indoor public areas. In the catering industry, the FFP2 mask must be worn on the way to and from the seating areas, and in accommodation when entering generally accessible indoor areas. Operators and employees must also wear an FFP-2 mask in enclosed spaces when coming into contact with customers!
    The consumption of food and beverages may only take place at the respective place of administration.
  • In the gastronomy is at 10 pm closing time. Night catering and après-ski are not possible for the time being.
  • The validity of the vaccination certificates is 270 days from full immunization. (In Austria, one is considered fully vaccinated from the day of the 2nd vaccination.) After that, another dose (usually the third) is needed for a valid certificate. Caution. A one-time vaccination with Johnson & Johnson will only be recognized until January 3, 2022, after which a booster is required.

Regulations for children!

  • Children under the age of twelve are exempt from the obligation to present proof of entry. (Exception Vienna: Here the test obligation applies from the age of 6).
  • For not fully vaccinated and not recovered school-age children, there is the possibility to equalize to the 2-G status with the so-called "Holiday Ninja Pass". Here you can find all the details about the necessary tests.

The 2.5-G rule (vaccinated, convalescent, or PCR test) applies to entry. Analogous to the general applicable framework is, for example, to enter accommodation, Gastronomy, sports facilities, recreational businesses, ski lifts or at events in principle a 2-G proof ("Ninja Pass" - at least 2x weekly PCR test) required.

This system now also applies to children traveling to Austria for vacation. (PDF document to download)

Entry to Germany

As of Sunday, Jan. 16, 2022, Germany reclassifies Austria as a high-risk area.

In practical terms, this means that vaccinated/healed persons must register via an online portal and upload proof of vaccination/healing before returning to Germany. Without such proof, quarantine is required upon return from high-risk areas. There is no exception for children without vaccination/healing, for them a five-day quarantine cannot be avoided according to the current legal situation.

  • Children under 6 years do not have to comply with any proof requirement, but must complete an entry declaration and must comply with a 5-day quarantine.
  • For children 6 years and older, the same regulations apply as for adults.
