Regulations for children
Here there is a difference for children under 12 years and between 12 and 15 years.
- When entering Tyrol, the 2.5 G rule applies from the 12th birthday (vaccinated, recovered or PCR test). Afterwards, this age group must comply with the 2G rule in the same way as all adults.
- For the age group 12-15 (school age !) the Holiday Ninja Pass is also valid as a 2G proof. All info about the Holiday Ninja Pass
- Adolescents from the end of compulsory schooling are subject to the same 2G requirements as adults.
- Children under the age of 12 do not need a 2G certificate in Austria.
In order to slow down the global spread of the Omikron variant, the entry rules to Austria will be tightened. A valid 2-G proof and the additional PCR-testing for entries from all countries allows to maintain the travel traffic.
- 2G+ (Vaccinated or recovered and PCR-tested) for entry from all states
- Booster vaccination exempts from PCR testing
Individuals without PCR testing or booster vaccination are subject to registration and must maintain home quarantine until a negative PCR test result is submitted.
Holiday Ninja Pass in the course of entry
As a general rule, children and young people aged 12 and over require a negative PCR test on entry. Children and young people of compulsory school age who were born after 31 August 2006 can also use the Holiday Ninja Pass in the course of entry. This means that you print out the Holiday Ninja Passport before your arrival and enter the first negative test result. As the Holiday Ninja Passport provides for three tests per week (2x PCR, 1x antigen), there is the theoretical possibility to start the test series with an antigen test. However, please keep in mind that a PCR test must be done immediately on site, as the antigen test is only valid for 48 hours and the test series may not be interrupted during the stay. It may take 24 hours before a PCR test result is available.
