Entry into Austria

"The cornerstone of the COVID-19-Einreiseverordnung 2021 (COVID-19 Entry Regulation 2021) is the focus on 3 means of verification that you are not infected: for all types of entry into the country, evidence of a vaccination, a current test, or recovery from COVID-19 is required. This also includes the EU Digital COVID Certificates, which contain an EU-compliant QR code. As evidence of vaccination, all of the vaccines which have been authorised by the EMA or have successfully passed the evaluation process of the WHO are recognised. Stricter rules apply to entry from so-called virus variant regions and states." (Link)
