Does the testing also apply to children?
Children up to the age of 10 do not need to be tested; the test result of the parents or a guardian applies. From the age of 10, children need their own test result.
To note: Tests taken regularly at school may also be used as an entrance test in this case, provided they are still valid. (until 48h after test collection)
Since Monday, May 17, all pupils and students in Austria receive a valid proof of their respective negative test result. From now on, this proof will be used for entry everywhere where persons over the age of 10 are required to present a negative test result. (e.g. in catering and accommodation establishments).
Problems with Pre Travel Clearance
Due to a changeover, there are currently isolated technical problems with digital registration for entry into Austria (https://entry.ptc.gv.at/). Guests who cannot register electronically should please fill out this form in German or English and show it when crossing the border, this will also be accepted.
