Vienna airport offers arrivals Covid-19 test to avoid quarantine
Article written by
Vienna airport is now offering coronavirus testing for arriving passengers, with the aim of avoiding 14 days of quarantine under Austria’s current entry rules.
The molecular-biological Covid-19 test (also known as a PCR test) costs €190, and is carried out in a laboratory at Office Park 3 on the ground floor at Vienna Airport.
The result is available within two to three hours, and those presenting negative will be provided with a medical certificate meaning they do not have to self-isolate for 14 days on arrival into the country.
Current regulations mean that arriving travellers must either present a medical certificate not more than four days old showing a negative Covid-19 result, or begin quarantine.
Travellers wishing to avail of the test should call (+43) 1 368 45 54, or email email@example.com. The airport said that travellers entering Austria from abroad can reserve an appointment in advance “and thus gain clarity promptly after arriving in Vienna as to whether or not they have to quarantine themselves”.
In addition to the optional testing, all passengers are subject to temperature checks on arrival, and are required to wear face coverings when inside the terminal building. In addition various social distancing measures are in place including a limit on the number of passengers on boarding buses, and plexi-glass shields at check-in, boarding and information desks.
