2. What are the regulations for travelling back to Germany if Germany imposes a travel warning for Tirol?

Germany currently has a travel warning in place for Tirol (with the exception of the enclaves Kleinwalsertal and Jungholz). Guests travelling back to Germany after a stay in Tirol must be aware of the following points:

  • People travelling to Germany from a high-risk area must immediately register online with the German authorities using the website
  • Since 11 January 2021 Germany has has a new "two-test strategy". This means that people travelling to Germany must provide a negative test which is no more than 48 hours old.

4. What do I need to consider when using transfers?

  • On your journey home we ask you to observe the hygiene and health measures which apply to the means of transport you are using as well as in stations, airports and other waiting areas.
  • Please make sure you wear a face mask on all public transport, in taxis and on airplanes.
  • We recommend allow more time for your departure due to changes in security processes at airports and stricter hygiene regulations.

5. What should I do if I am contacted by the authorities after my holiday and informed of a positive Covid-19 case?

  • First of all, it is essential that you stay at home until you get a negative test result.
  • In the event of a positive test, you will be informed immediately by the competent body (in Austria the Regional Administrative Authority) and officially told to isolate. 
  • Furthermore, all further necessary measures will be initiated by the authorities – also with regard to contact persons, etc. In Austria the official regulations on the management of contact persons apply.
