From Friday, January 15, the Austrian authorities are introducing mandatory online registration for everyone entering the country in connection with the spread of coronavirus infection. This was reported on the website of the Austrian Ministry of Health.
To register, you must fill out the form on the department’s website, indicate your contact information and location a few days before the trip, as well as the address of residence in Austria and the planned period of stay there.
