Stricter border regime introduced on Austrian-Slovenian border

As of 12.00 on 20 March, Austria imposed a stricter regime on its border with Slovenia.

The new measures, simultaneously introduced on the borders with Slovenia and Hungary, are the same as those already applied on the borders with Italy, Switzerland, Liechtenstein and Germany.

Entry into Austria is only possible upon presenting a medical certificate of a negative test for SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19), which should not be older than 4 days.

An exception to this rule applies to: Austrian citizens or other persons who provide a proof of temporary, permanent or habitual residence in Austria and sign a declaration binding them to remain in home quarantine for 14 days after entering Austria. If they take a COVID-19 test within these two weeks and the test results are negative, they may end the quarantine.

Transit through Austria is allowed, but WITHOUT stops.

Exceptions: transport of goods and transport for business purposes (except passenger transport), daily migrants, passengers in intervention, ambulance and emergency vehicles.
