Austrian border now fully open

Austria is terminating the coronavirus-related border restrictions for all of its neighbours except Italy, Foreign Minister Alexander Schallenberg announced yesterday.

Austria is lifting border checks and controls, as well as quarantine requirements, on its borders with Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Germany, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Slovenia as of Thursday.

“We are thereby returning to the pre-corona situation regarding these countries,” said Schallenberg.
