Austria has joined the growing list of European nations changing travel rules for Americans.
Starting on Sept. 15, Austria will require U.S. travelers entering the country to show proof of full vaccination or proof of recovery from COVID-19 in order to avoid a mandatory 10-day quarantine.
Those who are unable to provide proof or those who haven’t been fully vaccinated (14 days from the final dose of a two-shot vaccine or 22 days from the dose of the single-shot vaccine) will have to pre-register with Austria, present a negative COVID-19 test upon arrival, and then quarantine for 10 days.
The test can be either a PCR test taken no earlier than 72 hours prior to arrival or a rapid test taken no later than 48 hours prior.
Those traveling through Austria in transit will not be subject to the new rules.
The United States is one of a number of countries now subject to the new rules with the others including Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Zimbabwe, and more.
The news follows a recent European Union recommendation that its member countries reinstate restrictions against Americans because of rising COVID-19 cases in the country.
