ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

Required Documents: Proof of Vaccination or Past Infection, and PCR Test

Everyone entering Austria has to show any one of these two documents:

  • Vaccine Certificate

The following vaccines (including mix-and-match vaccines) are recognised for ENTERING Austria: BioNtech/Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Covishield, Johnson & Johnson, Moderna, Sinovac, and Sinopharm. You are considered fully vaccinated:

  1. if you have received both doses of AstraZeneca, Covishield, BioNtech/Pfizer, Moderna, Sinopharm, or Sinovac; OR
  2. if you have received your one Johnson & Johnson dose at least 22 days before arrival (only valid until 3 January 2022; after that a booster vaccination is required); OR
  3. if you have had COVID and have received one vaccination dose (proof of past infection required).
  4. From 20 December, you also need a PCR test unless you have already received the booster jab - if you can't show a PCR test upon arrival, you immediately have to self-isolate until you can present a negative PCR test.
  5. Teenagers can also use the new Holiday Ninja Pass to enter Austria.

The vaccine certificate is valid for 270 days after the 2nd dose for 2-dose vaccines. For people with a past infection + one vaccination, it is valid for 270 days after that one dose. If you have had a third/additional/booster vaccination, it is valid for 270 days from the third jab. There must be at least 120 days between the second and third jab, and at least 14 days between the first and the second jab.

Please note that Covishield, Sinopharm and Sinovac are only accepted to enter Austria. Covishield, Sinopharm and Sinovac are not accepted for entering any type of accommodation, restaurants, bars, nightclubs, leisure centres, gyms, cultural institutions, on cable cars/ski lifts and for body-related services.

  • Proof of Past Infection

You can enter Austria for 180 days after a SARS-CoV-2 infection. A certificate of recovery, a medical confirmation (a PCR test) or a notice about the obligation to quarantine are considered as proof. Proof of neutralising antibodies is no longer valid for entry into Austria.

What proof is accepted?

Proof of a PCR test, vaccination, or past infection can be a doctor's certificate, an official test result, a vaccination certificate/vaccination card/vaccine passport (including a pdf from an electronic vaccine passport, either on your phone or as a hard copy), or an official/medical certificate proving a past infection, either in German or English. If your original certificate is not in English or German, please use this official health certificate in German or English as proof.

If you are unable to show any of these documents, you are required to take a PCR within 24 hours of arriving in Austria (please note that you WILL need to show proof of full vaccination/past infection when checking into a hotel). However, in this case, you will need to register digitally before travelling to obtain pre-travel clearance, and are required to show proof of it at the border (either digitally or as a hard copy).

When you need the pre-travel clearance

You only need to show the pre-travel clearance if you are travelling from a country that is not on the list of safe countries (see below). In that case, a PCR-test is required (but no proof of full vaccination/past infection). No pre-travel clearance is needed when entering Austria from a safe country, or from all other countries, when you can show proof of full vaccination/past infection.

Find more information on the pre-travel clearance here and the form you need to fill in before travelling here.

Entry & Virus Variant Areas

The United Kingdom, Norway, Denmark and the Netherlands declared virus variant areas effective Dec. 25, which would mean mandatory quarantine. However, triple vaccinated individuals with a valid PCR test are exempt from this.

Where can I get tested?

During your holiday, you can take advantage of the free PCR test.

There are various stations around the Ötztal where you can pick up and drop off PCR tests. PCR gargle tests can be collected and dropped off during the usual opening hours.

PCR test procedure

  • Registration on Tirol Testet - up to 10 persons can be registered via one account
  • Pick up the PCR test at the listed SPAR and MPreis shops
  • Take the gargle sample according to the instructions provided at the accommodation
  • Return the gargle sample at the supermarket branch
  • The test result will be sent to your mobile phone within 24 hours

Do you need a PCR test for returning back home?

It is a pleasure for us organizing a test for you. In Längenfeld and the entire valley are sufficient capacities available.

HOLIDAY AT HOTEL AQUA DOME

Even in these unusual times, Austria's hosts are doing their utmost to make your stay safe and relaxing. Here, you will find all the important information for your stay at the thermal bath.

IS THE THERMAL BATH ALSO OPEN OR JUST THE HOTEL?

The thermal bath, the sauna, our fitness centre, our restaurants - almost everything you appreciate about our wellness and relaxation offer is open for you.

WHAT DO YOU DO TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF YOUR GUESTS?

The safety of our guests and our employees is our top priority. That is why we all cooperate and appeal to the personal responsibility of our guests.

The facility is completely disinfected during the night hours. Also the loungers are disinfected after each use.

We take care of your well-being - so that you can indulge in sheer pleasure: Relax or get active, conquer the mountain peaks or embark on an adventure with your family. The advantage of the AQUA DOME: With a net floor space of 65,000 square metres, we can easily maintain the necessary distance.

DO WE HAVE TO WEAR A MASK DURING OUR VISIT?

Yes, FFP2 masks must be worn in all public areas, in all catering outlets and when you are not sitting at a table.
Also in the thermal baths, except when you are on your lounger or in the water area.

No mask requirement for children up to the age of 6.

IS THERE A GREATER CHANCE OF TRANSMISSION IN THERMAL WATER?

No, on the contrary: Best water quality is ensured through constant disinfection and treatment. Hence, the risk of transmission is probably even less here than "on land".

RESTAURANTS & BUFFETS

In our restaurant, FFP2 masks are required outside your seat.

Breakfast is offered as usual, from 07.00 am to 11.00 am.
You can enjoy lunch at any time in the thermal-bath restaurant or sauna bistro - comfortably in your bathrobe. A small menu is available at the hotel bar.

Dinner is offered at the hotel restaurant (served menu - 06.00 pm to 09.00 pm). You are also welcome to enjoy dinner in your bathrobe at our thermal-bath restaurant. On most days, we offer a delicious grill buffet here.

All guests staying 5 nights or longer have an assigned or "fixed" table in the hotel restaurant; this also applies to families of 3 or more. All other guests are assigned their table.

TREATMENT & GYM AREAS

You can use both areas as usual.

Please see our course schedule for our free fitness classes. Advance bookings are recommended. 

Please disinfect the fitness equipment before and after use. From 19 May, most fitness courses will take place in the “Ideenglimmer” room in the seminar area of the hotel. For more information, please refer to our fitness course programme.

WHAT ELSE DO WE NEED TO BEAR IN MIND?

When you arrive, we will discuss all hygiene measures with you and also ask for your cooperation on site. Be assured: it was worth the wait, because now you can enjoy the best time ... at a distance!

Closing time 10 p.m.

Subject to change. (Status 11/01/2022)
