Requirements for Entry into Austria from Malta

 

Note: As of 15th September 2021, all passengers are required to wear an FFP2 mask without an exhalation valve throughout their flight to Austria as well as inside Austrian airports. Children up to the age of 6 years as well as persons who cannot wear a mask for health reasons are exempt from this requirement. Pregnant passengers as well as passengers aged between 6 years and 14 years may use a community mask instead of the FFP2 mask.

 

Testing 

If you are a resident or citizen of Austria, the EU/EEA, Switzerland or any country classified as ‘safe’ by the Austrian government, you will be required to present a negative result of a PCR test taken not more than 72 hours prior to departure or of an antigen test taken no more than 48 hours prior to departure.

Children under 12 years are exempt from taking a PCR or antigen test.

Otherwise, you can enter Austria for 6 months after being infected with Covid-19. Proof of antibodies is valid for 3 months from the test date.

Vaccinated travelers may present a vaccination certificate, vaccination card or vaccine passport (including a pdf from an electronic vaccine passport, either on your phone or as a hard copy) in lieu of a negative Covid-19 test certificate. The following vaccines are recognised by the Austrian government: BioNtech/Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson, Moderna, and Sinopharm. You are considered “vaccinated” starting on the 22nd day after your first dose, lasting for 3 months. After the second dose, the validity extends for another 6 months. Vaccines that only require one dose are valid from the 22nd day after that dose.
