Austria to open to UAE, Saudi Arabia and Oman travellers

There will be no quarantine requirement for vaccinated, recovered or tested travellers from the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Oman

The Austrian Ministry of Tourism and Agriculture has announced a further easing of travel restrictions with plans to allow visitors from more than 110 countries, including the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Oman.

From 1 July, Austria will be switching to the Robert Koch Institute system of monitoring the pandemic, instead of mapping by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control currently used to classify countries as “risk” or “high risk”.

The so-called “RKI list” identifies more than 110 countries as “risk areas”, and there will be no quarantine requirement for vaccinated, recovered or tested travellers arriving in Austria from these defined countries.

As of 28 May 2021, the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Oman are categorised in the “risk” category, meaning that entry to Austria from these countries will be possible.

The list continues to be evaluated on a regular basis by the Robert Koch Institute and is subject to change depending on the epidemiological development in each country.
