2. Entry to Austria
The cornerstone of the COVID-19-Einreiseverordnung 2021 (COVID-19 Entry Regulation 2021) is the focus on means of verification that you are not infected: for all types of entry into the country, evidence of a vaccination, a current PCR 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.
3. Safety and hygiene measures
The safety of all course participants and employees is our top priority. In the implementation of our safety guidelines, the highest level of student safety is key and group sizes and physical distance are designed in accordance with the applicable regulations. It is important to adhere to the physical distance guidelines and to wear a FFP2 mouth-nose-protection in school and at some indoor venues (e.g. public transport, health care).
