As from the 26 December 2020, the current measures in order to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus will be tightened again. Trade (except food shops and pharmacies), services with close physical contact (hair salons, massage therapies, etc.), hotels, restaurants as well as bars will therefore remain closed until 24 January 2021. There will be a lockdown back in place. The curfew will apply 24/7. The Tirolean ski resorts are allowed to reopen as from 24 December 2020.
Since 19 December 2020 there has been a 10-day obligatory quarantine for persons entering Austria from a Corona risk area. There are plans to classify risk areas on the basis of the 14-day incidence rate of positive Coronavirus cases. All countries with a rate higher than 100 will be classified as risk areas. After five days, travellers can take a PCR or antigen test at their own expense. Only if the test is negative, can they end their quarantine earlier. Exceptions apply for business travellers and commuters, for example. Before entering Austria you must complete this Pre-Travel Clearance Form.
From 22 December until 24 January, flights from the United Kingdom are not allowed to land in Austria.
