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 180 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.
A valid test result within the meaning of the regulation is:
- A negative test result of a molecular biological test for SARS-CoV-2 (PCR), which was taken not more than 72 h ago.
- A negative test result of an antigen test for SARS-CoV-2 (except for self-testing), which was taken not more than 24 h ago.
Regulations for children
The obligation to present valid proof does not apply to children up to the age of 12.
In times of crisis, people reach for meaning.
Meaning is strength.
Our survival may depend on our seeking and finding it.
