COVID-19 measures for Incoming students and guest researchers

The following provisions apply to visiting students and visiting researchers at Vetmeduni Vienna (campus and branch offices) regardless of their country of origin.

BEFORE entering Austria, electronic registration is mandatory (Pre-Travel-Clearance - PTC). Registration takes place via an electronic form (German and English). 
NEW: You can register 72 hours before entering Austria at the earliest.

After registration, you will receive a confirmation, which must be presented electronically or printed out during an inspection.
As an exception, the form can also be filled out and signed by hand.

WHEN entering Austria, You require a negative PCR or antigen test that is not older than 72 hours. NEW: The test result in German or English is equivalent to a medical certificate. A medical certificate is still required for test results in other languages. If this proof cannot be provided, the test must be taken within 24 hours of entry. 

AFTER entering Austria, a ten-day (home) quarantine must be started immediately. Ending quarantine prematurely with a negative PCR or antigen test is possible on the fifth day at the earliest, whereby the day of entry is counted as day 0. 

The test result (e.g. medical certificate) is submitted electronically BEFORE entering the Vetmeduni Vienna Campus or Vetmeduni Vienna branch to  or to the secretariat of the host institution.
