Good to know

The "G-rules"

  • Proof by means of immunisation passport, immunisation card, QR-Code (Green Pass) or print-out
  • From the second vaccination (must not be more than 270 days ago)
  • For people who have already recovered and who have previously been vaccinated, the vaccination is valid for 270 days from the time of vaccination.
  • Another vaccination, whereby this must not be more than 270 days ago and at least 120 days have passed between this and the previous vaccination.
  • Attention: Vaccination certificates for a dose with Janssen lose their validity on January 3, 2022. Therefore, a second dose is required no earlier than 14 days after the first dose in order to continue to receive a valid vaccination certificate.
  • Valid vaccines: Comirnaty from the manufacturer BioNTech / Pfizer, Spikevax from the manufacturer Moderna, Vaxzevria from the manufacturer AstraZeneca and COVID-19 Vaccine Janssen from the manufacturer Janssen.
     
  • Vaccination 
  • Proof of recovery from an infection with SARS-CoV-2 over the last 180 days or a medical confirmation of an infection with SARS-CoV-2 over the last 180 days, which has been confirmed by molecular biology, or
  • Separation notice, if this was issued for a person who was verifiably infected with SARS-CoV-2 in the last 180 days before the planned test
  • Children up to the age of twelve do not need proof of a low epidemiological risk. Therefore, in line with the adjustment of the vaccination recommendation, no proof of entry for restaurants and hotels is required.
  • Children from the age of 12 need appropriate proof of a low epidemiological risk:
    • When entering the country, the 2.5 G rule applies (vaccinated, recovered or PCR test)
    • Analogous to the general framework conditions, a 2-G certificate is generally required for entry into accommodation, restaurants, sports facilities, leisure facilities, ski lifts or events.
  • For school-age children, however, the schools' ninja pass is equivalent to the 2-G certificate:
    If the test intervals are adhered to during the week according to the school regulations (at least 2 times a week a PCR test), the "Ninja Pass" is also valid on Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the respective week as 2-G proof for gastronomy and Accommodation establishments.
  • There is a special regulation for the school-free period:
    • For children of school age in Austria who can present a valid test certificate during the school-free period from Monday to Friday (at least 2 times a week a PCR test), this is still valid as a 2-G certificate.
    • All further details on this, in particular on the documentation, are currently being worked out together with the Ministry of Health.
    • The period of validity for antigen tests is 48 hours and for PCR tests 72 hours from sampling.
    • This system should also apply to children (up to the age of 15) who travel to Austria and do not have a “ninja pass”.
