The University of Vienna has started implementing ‘2.5 G Rule’ measures, which oblige everyone, including travelers, to provide valid proof of vaccination or recovery in order to allow them access to various inland regions while in Austria.

“In Austria, the 2-G (“vaccine, repossessed”) rule is in effect in many areas. Access to accommodation, restaurants/pubs, cable cars, and cultural institutions, among others, is only possible with proof of complete vaccination/previous infection. The website reveals. The university’s official reports that a negative Covid-19 test is no longer sufficient.

Regarding the ‘Rule 2-G’, the authorities made it clear that the measure does not apply to children under the age of 12 and those between the ages of 12 and 18. However, a solution for these ages is in the pipeline, TheSchengen.com reports.

University of Salzburg, University of Danube, University of Krems, University of Graz, Medical University of Leoben, University of Graz, Vienna Economics and Business, Innsbruck University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna University of Technology Graz
