 Local measures

Winter Sports in Austria
In many places in Austria, the so-called 'Gruner Pass' (Green Pass/3-G rule) is mandatory. The pass (usually in the form of a QR code) indicates your Covid-19 status and, therefore, shows whether you are Vaccinated, Cured or Tested. Here are the coronavirus measures for the 2021/2022 ski season in Austria in a nutshell:

  • You must show a 3-G certificate to use ski lifts. This is checked when the ski passes are sold at the cash register.
  • Mountain huts and restaurants are accessible upon presentation of a 3-G certificate.
  • There is no capacity limitation for ski lifts as they want to prevent too long queues for the lifts.
  • Everyone is obliged to wear an FFP2 face mask in 'closed' ski lifts (example gondolas).
    The same rules apply to après-ski as night gastronomy. This means that the après-ski can take place but under strict measures. Initially, the 3-G rule also applies here. If the Covid-19 situation worsens, this could be tightened up to the 2-G rule, which means only cured or vaccinated people have access.

Other Austrian measures:
The following measures are currently in effect:
  • Bring an FFP2 mask. Everyone is required to wear an FFP2 mask in supermarkets, pharmacies and public transport. In other shops this applies if you are not (fully) vaccinated.
  • For entrace to hotels, restaurants, leisure facilities and museums you will need to show either a negative COVID test or proof that you have been fully vaccinated/have had COVID

If I decide to travel despite negative travel advice (code orange and red) will I be insured? 
With most insurers, it is the case that non-COVID related matters are covered. In short, it is possible to be covered for an accident on the slopes, but not in the case of COVID-19. Check with your insurer before making any travel arrangements.
