From 12.02.2021 a negative Covid test will be needed in order to travel out of Tirol (this rule does not apply to East Tirol). This test must be no more than 48 hours old. Children do not need to provide a negative test. This rule will remain in place for at least 10 days. The Austrian federal government has also issued a travel warning for Tirol.

Non-essential food shops and services involving close physical contact have been open again in Tirol since 8 February 2021 but are subject to strict rules. Hotels and hospitality venues will remain closed until at least the end of February 2021. The restrictions on leaving the home between 20:00 and 06:00 remain in place. It is also mandatory to wear a FFP2 face mask in all shops and on public transport. In public places you must maintain a minimum distance of 2 metres to other people. Ski resorts in Tirol will be allowed to stay open.

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 07 March, flights from the United Kingdom are not allowed to land in Austria.
