Overview: Basically, people who want to enter Austria from neighboring countries must also present a corona test (CPR test) that is no older than four days. Austrian citizens and those who have their main or secondary residence or their habitual residence in Austria must commit to a 14-day quarantine after their entry. Alternatively, as before, you can run a corona test to end this quarantine. Passage through is still permitted provided that departure is ensured.
