Austria’s quarantine requirement was set to end on January 10th, but officials have told The Local it will stay in place 'until further notice’.


At a press conference on Wednesday, December 2nd, the Austrian government announced it was tightening the existing quarantine rules

As a result, anyone entering the country - regardless of whether they were an Austrian citizen or resident - from December 19th to January 10th will be required to quarantine for a ten-day period. 


With the quarantine entering its final days, The Local Austria reached out to Austrian officials for clarification as to whether the quarantine would be extended in line with the extension to the country’s coronavirus lockdown. 

On Tuesday evening, a spokesperson for the official Austrian Tourism Authority told The Local Austria that the quarantine was set to “remain in place until further notice”. 

The news has potential implications for anyone who was seeking to enter Austria after the quarantine expired.
