Vaccinated & Recovered

The EU-compliant vaccination certificate, the yellow vaccination passport, a vaccination card and a printout or a PDF (e.g. on a mobile phone) of the data from the e-vaccination passport are valid as proof of vaccination.

  • Immunisation by two partial vaccinations:
    After receiving the second vaccination, the validity period of the vaccination certificate is 270 days and at least 14 days must have elapsed between the two vaccinations.
  • Immunisation by convalescent vaccination:
    Provided there was a positive molecular biology test for SARS-CoV-2 at least 21 days prior to vaccination or there is already evidence of neutralising antibodies at the time of vaccination, proof of vaccination is valid for 270 days from the time of first vaccination with an EMA-approved vaccine against SARS-CoV-
  • Further vaccinations (“3rd dose”):
    After receiving a further vaccination, the validity period of the vaccination certificate is again 270 days . A minimum of 14 days must elapse between this vaccination and an immunisation in which only one vaccination is scheduled. For all other vaccination schedules, at least 120 days must have elapsed.

Approved vaccines are: BioNtech/Pfizer (2 doses), AstraZeneca (2 doses), Moderna (2 doses), Sinopharm (2 doses) and Sinovac (2 doses).

It is possible to receive a booster vaccination in Austria. Our concierge team can assist you with an appointment.


A valid certificate of recovery according to the current guidelines is:

  • A convalescence certificate
  • A certificate of isolation from the authorities
  • A medical confirmation of an infection with SARS-CoV-2 (this must have been proven by molecular biology (e.g. PCR test)).

All these proofs of genesis must not be older than 180 days.


The obligation to present valid proof does not apply to children up to the age of 12.

Regulations for children

The obligation to present valid proof does not apply to children up to the age of 12.

Children from the age of 12 require appropriate proof:

  • When entering Austria you have to be vaccinated, convalescent or have a valid negative PCR test.
  • For entry into accommodation, gastronomy, sports facilities, leisure facilities, ski lifts or at events, you have to be vaccinated or recovered.
  • However, for school-age children, the Austrian’ “Ninja Pass” from the schoold is equivalent to a proof of vaccination or recovery: If the test intervals during the week are adhered to in accordance with the school regulations (a PCR test at least 2 times per week), the “Ninja Pass” is also equal to a proof of of vaccination or recovery on Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the respective week.
  • A special regulation is provided for the school-free period:
    For children of compulsory school age in Austria who can also show valid proof of testing (at least 2 PCR tests per week) during the school-free period from Monday to Friday, this will continue to count as vaccinated or recovered.
    This system is also to apply to children (up to the age of 15) travelling to Austria who do not have a “Ninja Pass”.
    A PCR test infrastructure is available in Lech. Our concierge team will be happy to help you organise the tests you need.
In case you have already booked your winter holiday at the Sonnenburg and know that you are not allowed to travel under the current conditions, we kindly ask you to contact us.

In times of crisis, people reach for meaning.
Meaning is strength.
Our survival may depend on our seeking and finding it.
