Austria Imposes Expiry Period For Vaccine Certificates

Vaccine Certificates

Austria has eased entry restrictions, so visitors from the UK no longer need to self-isolate if they are fully vaccinated against Covid-19. However, they will introduce a time limit on the validity of vaccinations from Wednesday (18/8).

The Austria.info travel portal said the validity of vaccination extends for 270 days after the second jab, for those requiring two doses, and after the first for vaccines needing just one.

However, this means the vaccination validity for UK travellers who were fully vaccinated in January will expire in October. Those who were double-jabbed by the end of April would have a valid pass until the end of January 2022.

This is the latest blow for fully vaccinated holidaymakers, who have hoped to have their travel rights increase, not curtail.
