Validity of vaccination certificates

The validity of vaccination certificates will be reduced to 180 days from February 1, 2022. Excluded are persons under the age of 18, for whom the second vaccination is valid for 210 days.
The validity of booster vaccinations remains at 270 days. Check validity here.

New entry regulations from January 24th, 2022

  • 2-G+ (vaccinated or recovered and in both cases PCR-tested) - obligation to provide proof when entering from all countries ("virus variant areas" do not apply anymore).
  • Exceptions:
    • People who can prove a booster do not have to submit a PCR test!
      Any further vaccination dose that goes beyond the "first series of vaccinations" (recovery + 1 vaccination, 2/2 vaccinations or 1/1 in the case of Janssen vaccination) is considered a "booster". A recovery (valid proof of recovery 180 days) that took place in addition to the first series of vaccinations may also be counted as a “booster”.
  • Persons without a PCR test or booster vaccination are subject to registration and must observe home quarantine until a negative PCR test result is presented.

New corona regulations from January 8th

FFP2 mask also outdoors, where a distance of 2 meters is not possible, for example in pedestrian zones, queues, group gatherings, etc. (exception for closest relatives such as partners and children).

Good to know

The "G-rules"

  • Proof by means of immunisation passport, immunisation card, QR-Code (Green Pass) or print-out
  • Two-dose vaccinations are valid for 270 days after the second (from Feb. 1st 180 days) or any additional dose. There need to be at least 14 days in between the first and second jab and 120 days between the second and third one. 
  • The Johnson & Johnson vaccination is valid for 270 days, 22 days after the first dose. 
    Please note: Since 3 January 2022, you need a booster if you have only received one Johnson & Johnson dose. 
  • If you are both vaccinated and recovered, the first dose is valid for 270 days (from Feb. 1st 180 days)
  • 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 12 years of age do not need proof of a low epidemiological risk for accommodation, restaurants, sports facilities, leisure facilities, ski lifts or at events.
  • Children from 12 to the end of compulsory schooling (children who were born before September 1st, 2006 are finished with compulsory schooling) require appropriate evidence of a low epidemiological risk:
    • Children who are double vaccinated do not need any further tests on site. The vaccination is valid as proof of 2G. (Attention: a PCR test is required upon entry)
    • For Austrian school children, a VALID (holiday) ninja pass is equivalent to 2G proof.
    • Children traveling to Austria need a PCR test at least twice a week. These are therefore considered 2G evidence.
    • When entering the country, a negative PCR-test is required.
  • After the end of compulsory schooling, the 2G obligation applies to children when entering accommodation, restaurants, sports facilities, leisure facilities, ski lifts or at events.
  • Validity vaccination under 18: second vaccination valid for 210 days
